Hey folks..

I need to know how to cast a floating point value into an
integer..

Suppose I have declared two variables..

i: Integer;
e: Extended;

Then

i := e;              //Doesn't work
i := Int(e);         //Doesn't work
i := FloatToInt(e);  //Doesn't work
i := Integer(e);     //Doesn't work

What do I do to make this work??

You have to round the float to get the integer:

i := Round(e);

You have to Trunc the float to get the integer:

i := Trunc(e);

Hah!
You're wrong all of you! Here's the real way to do it:

    i := StrToInt( Copy( Format( '%g', [ e ] ), 1, Pos( DecimalSeparator, Format( '%g', [ e ] ) ) - 1 ) ) +
         StrToInt( Copy( Format( '%g', [ Frac( e ) + 0.5 ] ), Pos( DecimalSeparator, Format( '%g', [ Frac( e ) + 0.5 ] ) ) - 1, 1 ) );

;->

BTW, use JimBob's solution. Never use Trunc unless it is exlplicitly stated that all decimals should be neglected.

If you want to round the value of the variable ' e' for the whole closer, discarding its decimals, use the function:  
 
i:=trunc(e+0.5)  
 
that substitutes the function i:=round(e).  
 
thank you for the points.
