FPC supports overloaded properties - but it's a bug in FPC.

Just overload the getters/setters and don't redefine the property. See http://mantis.freepascal.org/view.php?id=28949

@ondrejpokorny: Thank you very much for sharing this information. You made my day :) Now i can use Lazarus 1.6 with my existing code! Just need to play with compiler switches...

if you call it 'bug' , not 'future', so is in plan to fix it? If so, I don't understand SnoopyDog's joy, because code will not work in future.
Windows 7 SP1 x64, FPC 3.0.0, Lazarus from trunk: http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk

CountIdentity, ModeClassName - good property naming
IdentityCount,  ClassNameMode  - bad property naming

feature may well be implemented in the future....I guess

Also want to add, that variant types less preferable than overloaded getters/setters. Because in 2nd case you understand all parameters types class works with by just looking at class declaration. In 1st case you need also jump/scroll to implementation + analyse code. Thus useless seconds accumulate to useless hours of "programming".

in the end of the day i do not understands if this "feature" (allowing properies to use differnt type of indices ) is future safe or is just a bug in the compiler...
help apreciated because my code relies on this
thanks!

What you need is a dictionary (or a map, same thing) . TDictionary<TKey.TValue> or TFPGMap<TKey,TValue>
Both of these can query for items of either type Key or Type Value. property Keys[], property Values[], much more clear.

Although the example code with the class helper still compiles in trunk, you will run into trouble implementing a sane result from it ;) But it still does work. And please use generics.

if only i can realize my class for ini-files with default property where can use different count of array parameters... one, two or three...

@Thaddy:  my own object notation (XON) is itself a dictioanry or if you call it a map- its a an super data structure capable of holding scalar values or arrays ( integer index) or objects ( string indices) ... for the elegance of the code it's better to be able to write:
 xvarA[1]:=1; // xvar.GetChildByIndex(1).AsInteger=1;
 xvarB['name']:='blaBlaBla'; xvar.GetChildByKey.AsString='BlaBlaBla';

i hole this will still work in the future
