how do i check if there is no filename entered in the
open file dialog and the user just press the cancel button
in the open file dialog?
procedure TEditForm.Open(const FileName: string);
begin
 PathName := FileName;
 Editor.Lines.LoadFromFile(PathName);
 Editor.SelStart := 0; <- error here when the user presses the cancel button in open file dialog...

 Caption := ExtractFileName(PathName);
 Editor.Modified := False;
end;
