saar,

I assume what you want here is to extract everything after the first word. Of so then the following would do the trick:

var
  MyString : String;

.

MyString := '';
if pos(' ', MyEditBox.Text) > 0 then
  MyString := Copy(MyEditBox.Text, Pos(' ', MyEditBox.Text), length(MyEditBox.Text));


I hope this helps,

Raymond.

Here is a better way to do the same thing,,,,

var
  Str : String;
  nPos : Integer;
begin
   Str := '';
   nPos := pos('bla', Edit1.Text);
   if nPos > 0 then begin
    Str := Copy(Edit1.Text, nPos, Length('bla'));//where Length('bla') = 3
    Caption := Str;
  end;
end;

btw- It's actually the same approach but using a better method :->

Viktor: What if you don't know what 'bla' is?

saar: The pos call in my answer should be Pos(' ', MyEditBox.Text)+1 to avoid including the space (if you want the space don't go +1 :-)

Cheers,

Raymond.

Yeah that's true Raymond.

Saar: If you want to get a specific clause, phrase, use my way otherwise if you want to get the word after the space use Raymond's way. Here is something that will simplify things...

Function GetParsedItem(TheItemStr, ParseStr : String; ItemNum : Integer): String;
 Var
  I4 : Integer;
  S4 : String;
Begin
TheItemStr := TheItemStr + ParseStr;
  S4 := '';
 I4 := 0;
 While I4 <= ItemNum Do
  Begin
   S4 := Copy(TheItemStr, 1, Pos(ParseStr, TheItemStr) - 1);
   Delete(TheItemStr, 1, Pos(ParseStr, TheItemStr));
   Inc(I4);
  End;
  Result := S4;
End;

Example Call: If you want to get Bla in your example you should use this...

var
  Bla : string;
begin
  Bla := GetParsedItem(Edit1.Text, ' ', 1); //or was it 2 ?
end;

Hope this helps!

Viktor Ivanov

write bla = memo1.lines.add('*** Bla')

OK, if you want to get the first word as well do this:

MyString := Copy(MyEditBox.Text, 1, Pos(' ', MyEditBox.Text) - 1);

Then rearrange your string as you require...

Cheers,

Raymond

(I could be missing the boat here - I'm sure you will let me know if I am...)
