Procedures

I have a Procedure that calls two other procedures

eg

Procedure TForm.Button1Click(Sender:TObject);
begin
  GetOutputFile(CurrentFile);
  DrawCoords(Sender);
end;

The problem is that the procedure DrawCoords executes BEFORE the procedure GetOutPutFile is finished. Where I want it to execute after GetOutPutFile is finished. DrawCoords ends up reading blank information from a StringGrid because GetOutPutFile hasnt finished reading the file and writing it to the StringGrid. So basically I want DrawCoord to wait momenterily

You are on wrong way.
GetOutputFile(CurrentFile) must finished to execute DrawCoords(Sender).
You must place here some code from GetOutputFile(CurrentFile).
I think so your error is there.

Hi

There is something wrong here.  A Delphi procedure cannot execute until the one before it has finished.  An exception would be if GetOutputFile starts a thread.  In that case, GetOutputFile could finish, and DrawCoords could start before the thread has started/initialized.

As Mirek asked, please could you give us the code from GetOutputFile.

GetOutputFile starts something asynchroniusly (a thread of some kind; maybe calls an async method of a component). You should put DrawCoords in the EVENT generated when the thread (or async method) completes.
