How would I go about reading a string variable into a Character array.  e.g.

Message : array[1..30] of char;

I would like to read in the string variable from a TFileListBox.

Thanks.

TRY THIS:

procedure StringToArray(var  arr: array of char; inStr: string);
var i, last:integer;
begin
  last:= length( inStr);
  for i:=0 to high(arr) do
    if i<last then
      arr[i]:= inStr[i+1]
    else
      arr[i]:=' ';
end;

This procedure does not seem to work in Delphi 3 as the string and char variables in the line: arr[i]:= inStr[i+1]   are not compatible.

I compiled the code in both on D1 and D3. Seems no problem.
Why are arr[i] and instr[i+1] not compatible? i thought they are both char type.
Did you use any compiler directive in your program? I am using default setting ie. {$H+}

My misttake..Sorry.  YOUR code is fine but I still had the array[1.14] OFCHAR variable defined.  Array of char works fine.

Thanks again.
