I don't believe I know enough about how it works at this point to answer your question. Yes, we could use a TComponent that could answer all these questions but I don't know how it would know it's children's (a TEdit's for example) methods and such.
I just don't know enough about this at this point.
BTW, welcome to the list and feel free to try and help out. Take your time and ask lots of questions!

I have a question for you: We need some kind of framework to be able to do
this kind of work, right ? i was thinking maybe we need to have a
TComponent that knows how to respond to something (messages?methods?) and
describe itself (properties, methods, childrens and so forth). If we Had
such a structure, it would make it easier to build a "component
inspector"-like window. By parsing the source we can get the list of
component that where created by the IDE (build/update a XML file for
instance), rigth? and then create all the components from there (let the
"Inspector" build a list of all the components (and build them) --
=probably not too hard-- and teach it how to read/change properties --
=hard part-- )
Did anyone started some "theory" on how all this would fit together ?
(sorry for not participating a little bit more, but i'm having trouble
understanding everything in there, but since it looks more and more like
delphi, i hope i'll be able to contribute soon -:> )
