How do I find and delete a string in a listbox?  The delete method needs an integer, so how do I match the Integer to the String?

If your list box is called ListBox1 and you want to delete an item called "delete me" from the list, you can do this:

  var Index: Integer;
begin
Index := ListBox1.Items.IndexOf('delete me');
if Index > -1 then
    ListBox1.Items.Delete(Index);
end;
