If I have a form with 10 labels, and I need to set each caption to '' (nothing), how can I do this without writing each one with this Labelx.Caption := ''; Labely.Caption := '';
etc....

I think an Array of some sort, but I'm not sure...

I have this so far:

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
i : Integer;
L: String;
begin
i := 1;
 while i < 10 do begin
  inc(i);
  L := 'Label' + IntToStr(i);
  label1.Caption := L;
  end;
end;

Thanks

var
i : Integer;
L: String;
begin
i := 1;
 while i <= 10 do begin
  L := 'Label' + IntToStr(i);
  TLabel(FindComponent(L)).Caption := L;
  inc(i);
  end;
end;

To clear the Captions you have to use this of course:

TLabel(FindComponent(L)).Caption := '';

Just a correct for the ckaneta's source

var cnt : integer;
begin
for cnt:= 0 to Form1.Componentcount -1 do
 begin
  if (components[cnt] is TLabel) then
   begin
    (components[cnt] as TLabel).caption:='';
   end
 end;

this works fine!!
