Just an example

var a: array of Byte;
    i: Integer;
begin
  Randomize;
  SetLength(a, 25);  // set size to 25 bytes
  for i := Low(a) to High(a) do  // itterate the entire array
    a[i] := Random(100);
end;

if you have D4 and above....

//=============================
interface

type  
  TMyGrid = array of array of Integer;

var
  MyGrid: TMyGrid; // declares a two-dimensional array of integers.


implementation

  // To instantiate, call SetLength with two integer arguments.
  // For example, if x and y are integer-valued variables,
  // SetLength(Grid, x, y);
  // allocates an x-by-y array, and MyGrid[0, 0] denotes an element of the array.
  // MyGrid := nil; // deallocates mem

//=============================

Or for D2&D3:

type
  TIntegerArray = array[0..0] of integer;
  PIntegerArray = ^TIntegerArray;

....

var
  ints : PIntegerArray;
  index : integer;
begin
  getMem(ints,sizeOf(integer)*100);
  for index := 0 to 99 do
    ints[index] := index*index;
//ints is now an array of 100 integers
//containing the squares of 0..99
  dispose(ints);
end;
