TString? I assume you mean a list of string so that's a TStringList.

Use the following :

Procedure MyTest;
Var
  MyStrings:TStringList;
procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
Begin
  MyStrings:=TStringList.Create;  {Create the TStrings object}
{Do your job}
{for example :}
  MyStrings.Clear;
  MyStrings.add('test');

  MyStrings.Free; {destroy the TStrings object and free memory}
End;

I will assume by TString you really mean TStingList???
useing a string is as simple as doing
Var
  MyString : string

MyString := 'My Big Ass String';

To use a String List you need to do a bit more

Var
  MyStringList : TStringList;

To Assign a value do this

MyString := TStringList.Create;
MyString.Add('My Big Ass String');

Then When you are done with it do a
MyString.Free;

Hope this is what you needed.

I mean TStrings. (I want to make a text for a RichEdit dynamically and store it to the RichEdit.Lines property)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

As far as i know, you need to use a TStringList and when you want to put the strings to the TRichEdit, then use RichEdit1.Strings:=MyStrings;
You can't use a TStrings object directly (In Delphi help it is written : "To maintain a list of strings outside of a control, use a string list object (TStringList).")

what I think you really mean it a TStringStream this is what one normaly uses to get the Rich text proporties out of a RTFEdit.  This is because if you say
var
 MyFattyString : string
begin
  MyFattyString := RTFEdit1.Text
end

MyFattyString is just a string of text with none of the formating stuff in it.

so I think you want to do something like this

var
  MyStream : TStringStream;
begin
  MyStream := TStringStream.Create('');
  RtfTextEdit.SaveToStream(MyStream);
  MyDB.FieldByName('CPNote').AsString := MyStream.DataString;
  MyStream.Free;
end;

then when you want the text to go back to the RTF you can use it as a plane old string then
    RtfTextEdit.Text := MyDB.FieldByName('CPNote').AsString;


Hope this is what you need because you'll have to put the points to 100 before I come back in here :)

var T : TStringList;

  T:= TStringlist.Create;
  T.clear;
  T.add('Hallo');
  T.add('Test');
  Form1.RichEdit1.text:= T.text;

That worked for me. I wanted to create some text and let it display in a RichEdit.
The error I was getting was because I did the above stuff in the onCreate handler of Form2.
Now that I put it into Form, it works
