Description
Documentation is not available for the following parts of TObject

Members topic url:

ms-help://embarcadero.rs2009/delphivclwin32/!!MEMBEROVERVIEW_System__TObject.html

Public methods -
  ClassInfo
  Equals
  GetHashCode
  MethodName
  ToString
  UnitName

In addition, the following methods which are overloaded could have their description altered sligtly to improve the readability.
As it is for these methods the documentaiont states

"This is the overview for the <method> method overload."

Since overloaded methods are meant to accomplish the same task, I think the description might as well state what task this is.

Public methods -
  FieldAddress
  MethodAddress

Edited the report to distinguish between missing documentation and stubs for overloaded methods.

Could you please add the URLs from the help viewer to those topics to your report?

Added all relevant urls. Sorry for the formatting breakage. Please extend the width of the main text area to compensate.

Well this is fun. The entire memberlist and all member documentation for TObject has gone missing in Help Update 1.If you want to verify this bug, you need the original D2009 help that came with the box.
