Hi,

You must use AnsiUpperCase.

Or write a few lines of code, in order to be sure your code works on any machine.

Let me know if you need it.

I use code like the one above to upcase only the first, but I got an imcompatible type error.

descrition: string
description[1] := AnsiUpperCase(description[1]);

Can you help me on the use of string type

Hi pjrov,

Your question induced me to focus in the accent problem.
I guess you had the same type error with UpperCase, don't you ?

The best conduct in such case would be placing a comment before grading the answer - you gave me a B )-:<

Anyway, I think I can help you. Change your code to:

descrition: string
description[1] := AnsiUpperCase(description[1])[1];

No, this is not a mistyping !!! I know it looks strange but it works...

IHTH

P.S.: If you want a piece of code that upcases (?) the first letter of a text while it is being typed by the user in a edit or combo box, place another question and I can send it for you. Bye.
