Summary0006595: TJvTFDays testing wrong integer object typecast test
DescriptionFunction TJvTFApptMap.HasAppt was testing if FData has object with ">0"
instead "<> 0". Object with integer typecast can returns negative values
(it happened with Delphi 10.2 Tokyo build, causing infinity loop)

This line
      if Test > 0 then

must be
      if Test <> 0 then
TagsNo tags attached.

Could you check if the issue is still present in the latest GIT content? If yes, please provide the zipped sources of an application showing this.

That code line is still there and Test is a NativeInt var so it could get negative:

function TJvTFApptMap.HasAppt(Appt: TJvTFAppt): Boolean;
  MapRow, MapCol, StartRow, EndRow, ApptsExamined: Integer;
  Test: NativeInt;
  ApptGrid: TJvTFDays;
  FGridCol.CalcStartEndRows(Appt, StartRow, EndRow);

  StartRow := Greater(StartRow, 0);

  ApptGrid := FGridCol.ColCollection.ApptGrid;
  if Assigned(ApptGrid) then
    EndRow := Lesser(EndRow, ApptGrid.RowCount - 1)
    EndRow := Lesser(EndRow, FGridCol.ColCollection.Printer.RowCount - 1);

  MapRow := 0;
  Result := False;
  while (MapRow <= EndRow) and not Result do
    MapCol := 1;
    ApptsExamined := 0;
    while (ApptsExamined < FData[MapRow, -1]) and not Result do
      Test := FData[MapRow, MapCol];
      if Test > 0 then
        if Test = NativeInt(Appt) then
          Result := True;



The FData var is a sparse mag which contains NativeInt values so they could get negative. I don't know this component, but I guess the author of this report is right about changing the comparison as otherwise the while loop could really become an endless loop!

I made your small change from
if Test > 0 then to
if Test <> 0 then
in a branch and created this pull request for it:

Hopefully it will get included soon.

Replaced the pull request with this one, as my old one contained unrelated modifications as well (Git is still new for me):
