ParamStr(1) and ParamStr(2)

If you want to know the number of passed parameters use ParamCount

If you want to display all parameters in a memo do this:

- Drop a Memo
- Drop a Button and write this code in it's OnClick event:

var
  i: Integer;
begin
  Memo1.Clear;
  for i:= 1 to ParamCount do
   Memo1.Lines.Add(ParamStr(i));
end;
