This declaration fails with the error message:
[Error] Main.wbs (1095,4): Expected : but instead found Offset

procedure TMainForm.MyProcedure;
var
   i: integer;
const
   Offset = 20;
begin
....
end;

Are constant declarations not allowed within a procedure?

Thanks Uli

Good find - i'm seeing the same.

I know I've used constants before but checking back they were all at the
unit level (i.e. after implementation keyword ).

Also not seeing anything in help saying you can't have them at function
level so need Tim to comment
