I am very new to delphi, and I am kinda confused abotu this...below is my code.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
i: integer;
s: string;
begin
button2.Enabled := true;
for i := 0 to 999999 do
begin
s := edit1.text;
s := s + 1;
edit1.text := s;
sleep(500);
end;
end;

end.


and I get an error about converting strings and crap like that, can some one fix this code to get it to work. Thanks

Try to change to this

s: Integer; // see here
begin
                   button2.Enabled := true;
                   for i := 0 to 999999 do
                   begin
                   s := StrToInt(edit1.text); // Hopefully Text is an Integer !
                   s := s + 1;
                   edit1.text := IntToStr(s);

Ps.
Sleep(500)
Sounds, as if you should use a Timer instead

Well,
I think then you get an unpredictable Number
so, you better take care, that the input is a number

You can try this. Think you want a "counter"? Not '1111.....'?

procedure TForm1.click(Sender: TObject);
var
{Changed this to longint }
 i : longint;
 s: string;

begin
 { Just to be sure it don't have a default text like "edit1.text" }
 edit1.text := '0';

for i := 0 to 999999 do
begin
 s := edit1.text;
{ Convert the text to an integer, add 1 and convert back to string }
 s := inttostr(strtoint (s) + 1);
 edit1.text := s;
{ If you want to see your counter you should use a refresh }
 form1.Refresh;
 sleep(500);
end;

What indi said is correct, but i'll try and make this clearer for you.

Edit box fields only accept strings. As you probably know strings are words etc. If you want to work with integers you need to convert them into a integer ie.

var
number:integer;

number:=strtoint(edit1.text);

then to convert the number back to an editbox after you have played around with it. do...

edit1.text:= inttostr (number);

hope this will help you.
