hi evryone

I am trying to write an application with "plugin extension" that are loaded
at runtime.

I was thinking the the extensions would be a TPanel with the required
component upon it.

Each plugin having its own configuration page to be displayed as a tab page
on the main config dialog for the app.

The problem i have is how to display the plugin components on the
applications main form. I can create the plugin component in the dll or
package but when ever i try to display it i get the error message "Cannot
convert a TFont to TFont".

Does anyone know how i can get around this situation?

Thanks
