That's actually easy enough:

This will do the trick:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  i: Integer;
begin
  If OpenDialog1.Execute then
  With OpenDialog1 do
    For i:= 0 to Files.count-1 do ShowMessage(Files[i]);
end;

Williams

Hi Barry, you gotta be fast at this site. The last 5 times I wrote answers, somebody came up before me :-) ..but I guess this will clear up things:

That's actually easy enough:

This will also do:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Memo1.Clear;
  If OpenDialog1.Execute then
    memo1.Lines.AddStrings(OpenDialog1.Files);
end;
