Formatting Strings

How do you use the format, Strfmt and Fmtstr functions. I am trying to take a string like this '26000' and convert it to 26,000.

I'm sure there are several string manipulation outines, howver converting teh string to a number, then appling a format works best for me.  Example,

str := edit1.text;
strtofloat(str);
FormatFloat('#,##0', str);

Please add a commnet if you have any questions.  Good Luck!
