Very Easy : I just can't think!

Hi,
   I'm sure this is dead simple, but I can't work it out at the moment. All I want to do is change the value of Edit1.Text into an integer. Do you use casting? Or is there an easier way of taking numbers from the user?
Cheers, Nik

if you are wanting to convert a string as text (e.g. BoRiS) to integer then use

var
  BorryString: string;
  BorryNum: Integer;
begin
  BorryString := Bor.Text; {Edit1}
  BorryNum := StrToIntDef(BorryString, 500);
  Bor2.Text {Edit2}:= IntToStr(BorryNum);
end;

check out StrToIntDef procedure.... (help file)

if it's a number in a string field to Integer then use the StrToInt or IntToStr procedures
