I am new to delphi, infact at the time I posted this message I have only had it for about 20 minutes. I downloaded the trial version. I am very good with Basic. Okay, I have a progress bar how do I make it add 1 to a so if any one knows basic, below is an example of what I want to do in delphi.

do
a$ = a$ + 1
loop until a$ = 100

and I want a$ to be the postition of the progress bar...so, I want it to add 1 to the progress bar until it reaches 100.

progressbar1.min := 0;
progressbar1.max := 100;
progressbar1.Smooth := true;
progressbar1.position := 1;

hi,
you can use a loop like this:

var
i : integer;
begin
for i := 0 to 100 do
progressbar1.position := progressbar1.position +1;

hi,
variables (var) cannot go inside a begin end statement:they either go where i have put it in the code below or as a global var which can be used in other events as well
see at the top of your unit you have
 "
var
form1 : tform1;
//you can add more variables here to look like:

 var
form1 : tform1;
i : integer;
s : string;
sl : tstringlist;
etc..
 
they would be global vars  
whereas the var in the procedure below can only be used in that procedure.
i suggest getting some books for delphi.
it is not hard to learn but the books help also se the help files as they have many examples of using the components.


procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
var
i : integer;
begin
progressbar1.min := 0;
progressbar1.max := 100;
progressbar1.smooth := true;
for i := 0 to 100 do
progressbar1.position := progressbar1.position +1;
end;

okay, thanks for your help...and as to your advice on getting books...whenever I read books they confuse me. I seem to learn programming languages better by just trying code. Thanks!
