I have a label on a form. What I want to do is edit the caption of the label. I know this can do it.

Label1.Caption := 'whatever';

Real problem is I want to change this caption in such a way that when the program restarts I want the label to have the changed caption. I want to do it without using files or registry to save the changed text.

Anybody got any ideas?

It has got to be stored some where either in the registry or a file or a database. What did you have in mind?

Store it in the Drives volume label  :o)

Use SetVolumeLabel and GetVolumeInformation

CrazyOne is right, persistence comes from storing the changes somewhere, you can't write back the changes anywhere else so that they will be there next time, you'll have to have an ini file or registry key.

Hi drnadeem,

Delphi help:
"resourcestring" - Resource strings are stored as resources and linked into the executable or library so that they can be modified without recompiling the program. For more information, see Internationalization and localization and the topics that follow it.
----

But you can't modify application's resource while application is running.

I assume that when you say "without files" you mean that you want the app as one .EXE (nad perhaps some DLLs) without external data files.

If you're changing the texts because of language (Italian, English) you might try using the ITE introduced in Delphi-5. This allows you to manage sets of resource DLLs, containing strings and other stuff usually written to the .RES file.
