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...

S.SetLength(FMyFile->Size + 1);
FMyFile->Read(S.c_str(), FMyFile->Size);

Sorry line

FMyFile = new TFileStream(S, fmOpenRead);

should read

TFileStream FMyFile = new TFileStream(S, fmOpenRead);

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Sorry again, add the * before FMyFile

TFileStream *FMyFile = new TFileStream(S, fmOpenRead);

No problem,  but still more errors.

[C++ Error] Options.cpp(289): Illegal character '`' (0x60).
[C++ Error] Options.cpp(289): Illegal character '\' (0x6c).

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
