How do I take the contents of edit1.dat and put it in Edit1??  In case you are wondering this is the opposite of the question (that someone just answered) about saving the input to a dat file...

Sorry line

FMyFile = new TFileStream(S, fmOpenRead);

should read

TFileStream FMyFile = new TFileStream(S, fmOpenRead);

Line

S[FMyFile->Size] = `\0';

is suppose to be

S[FMyFile->Size] = '\0';


Do you see the difference?
the character before \ is suppose to be ' not `

Will edit1 hold the registration code and edit2 holds the username.  So when the user opens up this dialog box I want it to tell them who the program is currently registered to (user/Edit2) and what the registration code is (Edit1).

Assume the user name is stored in edit2.txt

AnsiString S2("edit2.txt");
FMyFile2 = new TFileStream(S2, fmOpenRead); S2.SetLength(2FMyFile->Size + 1);
FMyFile2->Read(S2.c_str(), FMyFile2->Size);
S2[FMyFile2->Size] = `\0';
Edit2->Text = S2;
FMyFile2->Free;   // to free resource related to the filestream
