Hi,

I'm trying to use to ReadSectionValues Method of an Inifile object using a TStringList just as an example in the Delphi helpfile. But I'm getting a AccessViolation Error. What am I doing wrong?

Have you created your TStringList?  You need to create it before calling ReadSectionValues.

probably you didn't call the 'create' method for one of the objects. Place a button and a memo and try the following which works:

uses Inifiles;
...
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var xxx: TStringList;
begin
xxx:=TStringList.Create;
with tinifile.create('system.ini') do
begin
  ReadsectionValues('Boot', xxx);
  Free;
end;
Memo1.Lines:=xxx;
xxx.Free;
end;

Why, isn't that what I said???  You would think a guy would know how to call "MyStrList := TStringList.Create;" once he knew that was the problem...
