Memo.Lines question

Hi,
   I need to write a function which takes a line of a memo and checks each character as it goes. If it finds a character which is in a predefined subset, it should be returned. It's for an app which needs to check brackets. So if the subset of 'important' characters were '{ , }, [ ,] , ( , )' and the line in the memo was :

(information[this[ this and this]] {more gibberish}).

Then the function would put up a messagebox saying :

   '([[]]{})'
All brackets match;

I can write most of it, I just need to know how to inspect each character in the line. Anyone know how to do it?
Cheers, Nik.

Hello PiersBull,

To access individual characters in your memo lines, which is of type TStrings, you could assign the line to an individual string:

  MyString := Memo1.Lines[4];

Then, you can check each individual character by doing this:

  showmessage (MyString[1]);

HTH

Regards,

Edward
