hi,
i want to be able to enter any number from 0 to 200 and i want to get the ascii character corrosponding to that number. how do can i do this? converting into bytes is ok as well but you would have to be explicit, i haven't used bytes before. how do i define a variable as a byte? but in the end i would prefer to do it without using bytes. so to reiterate, i want to be able to take an integer and get the ascii character that integer represents. please help.
thank you.

Let suppose you have two TEdit controls on your form.
First - where you type number (0..200)
Second - where you want to see a char.
then you need code
------
begin
   Edit2.Text:=Char(StrToInt(Edit1.Text));
end;
-----
Cheers,
Igor.

Use

Var
  value: Byte;
Begin
  value := 65;
  Label1.Caption := Chr(value);
End;

Eps.

Instead of defining value as Byte, you can also define it as Integer, but Chr only accept values from 0 to 255.

In Delphi all ordinal types are compatible:

var
  b: Byte;
  i: Integer;
  m: 1..1000;
  i64: Int64;
begin
  b:=3;
  i:=b; m:=i; i64:=m;
  ....
