Saving and loading Component Published Propertys to disk

Answer:

The TStreams Class has a nice feature Couse it can stream component propertys in 
just one line . 

So here's the complete unit where i Stream the component 
If your class is not in the same unit you will have to register it . 

1   {
2   procedure RegisterClasses(AClasses: array of TPersistentClass);
3   
4   Description
5   
6   Call RegisterClasses to register a set of custom classes in a single line. Each 
7   class is registered by calling RegisterClass. Unregistered classes canít be loaded 
8   or saved by the VCL streaming system.
