Home - Programming - Delphi: JCL error during compile, "Expected ':' but an identifier found"

PROBLEM: JCL error when compiling, "Expected ':' but an identifier found"

SOLUTION: Check the PAS units for any forms you were working with. Because you have certain JEDI components on your form, one of the JCL experts is attempting to do a precompile of the form, which is failing and, unfortunately, not telling you where the error is originating from, not even the unit name. You probably mistakenly hit a key somewhere in the unit, specifically in the design section of the form class definition.
