I'm trying to copy a string out of a string field and into a TMemo This is what i'm using:

  Memo1.Text := F_MainMenu.TB_Output['Comment']

but if the Comment field does not have a string in it then the system gives me a EVariant Error 'Invalid Variant Conversion' I tried testing like this:

if not (F_MainMenu.TB_Output['Comment'] = '') then
      Memo1.Text := F_MainMenu.TB_Output['Comment'];

but it does not help. Thanks for your time....

Try comparing F_MainMenu.TB_Output['Comment'] to null instead of ''.

No, null is a special constant, of type variant. Here is the complete code :



if not (F_MainMenu.TB_Output['Comment'] = null) then
 Memo1.Text :=  F_MainMenu.TB_Output['Comment'];

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks again.....

The title of the other question is:

    "SetScrollInfo and ScrollInfo"

The date was 7/31

Part of the second part of my question is also asked by PhiNet on 7/25 in the question 'Scrollbar In DBGrid ( Delphi 3 )' that has not yet been answered. If you can answer my question then you'll also be able to pick up the credit for the 100 point question of his.
