Hi,

I'd like to know if there is a function which will replace
a value by another in a string.

I have a string which containts ' . I need to double the '
So I'd like to replace ' by '' .

Example: 'You'll find'   must be 'You''ll find'


Thank you !

Mary

You can use StringReplace

eg : result:=StringReplace('Some Text','Text','Message',[rfReplaceAll])

This will return 'Some Message' as the result.

There is also a function called QuotedStr which is used specifically for replace single quotes ' with double quotes ''.

Hi.
nnbbb09 is right, but u could also use this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
s: String;
FoundPos, i: Integer;
begin
s := Edit1.Text;
for i := 1 to Length(s) do
begin
FoundPos := Pos(' ', s);//The stuff to search for
if FoundPos <> 0 then
begin
Delete(s, FoundPos, 1);
Insert('+', s, FoundPos);//The item to replace with
end;
end;
Edit1.Text := s;
end;


//Another exampel of StringReplace:
edit1.text := StringReplace(Edit1.Text, ' ', '+', [rfReplaceAll]);


Hope it helped

function ReplaceText(const S,ReplacePiece,ReplaceWith: String):String;

Var Position: Integer;
    TempStr: String;
begin
  Position := Pos(ReplacePiece,S);
  if Position > 0 then Begin
    TempStr := S;
    Delete(TempStr,1,Position-1+Length(ReplacePiece));
    Result :=
Copy(S,1,Position-1)+ReplaceWith+ReplaceText(TempStr,ReplacePiece,ReplaceWith)

  End else Result := S;
end;
