Delphi Compiler Error
E2083 Order of fields in record constant differs from declaration
Reason for the Error & Solution
This error message occurs if record fields in a typed constant or initialized variable are not initialized in declaration order.
program Produce; type TPoint = record X, Y: Integer; end; var Point : TPoint = (Y: 123; X: 456); begin end.
The example tries to initialize first Y, then X, in the opposite order from the declaration.
program Solve; type TPoint = record X, Y: Integer; end; var Point : TPoint = (X: 456; Y: 123); begin end.
The solution is to adjust the order of initialization to correspond to the declaration order.
