List View

Dear Experts,I wish to fill a list view with Items and SubItems from an INI file as follows:



Heading1    | Heading2
-------------------------------------
A           | Data for A
B           | Data for B
C           | Data for C
D           | Data for D
...


so the INI file would look something like:

[Heading1]
Value=A,B,C,D ...

[Heading2]
Data="Data for A","Data for B","Data for C","Data for D" ...


I've tried various methods including CommaText and LoadFromFile but can't seem to get it 100%
succesful, I had a wierd thing with CommaText, the first Item wasn't read properly, it completey
ignored the first set of quotes!

Any help would be appreciated, as I don't want to hard code the data into the program.

Thanks in advance,
Antony

You can do it this way:

[Values] {use any name of the section here you wish}
A=Data for A
B=Data for B
C=Data for C
D=Data for D

etc...

This section would be dedicated only for data in the list.

However, if this is Delphi 2.0 (or even 3.0) and 32 bit world, use rather Registry, with about the similar context: one folder (key) in the registry with string items inside (I expect the Data are strings; but here you can use even DWORDs and similar types).
