Simple ownership dilemma

Hello everyone,

I have a simple dilemma. I have a sprite of a particular class which has another sprite defined under it as a public variable I.E...

Tmysprite=class(Tsprite)
Public
othersprite:Tsprite;
end;

I am writing code in a procedure where the scope only refers to othersprite; I cannot seem to reference the "Tmysprite" which it belongs to. I need to reference the owner (I believe that is the technical term?) in order to be successful here.

I have tried using the parent keyword, but the parent of othersprite is the spriteengine under which it was defined. Is there any way to be able to refer to Tmysprite under these conditions?

Thanks for your help.

    Othersprite also needs a reference to TMySprite for it to work.
