Therefore, I can access the array from MyArr[0] to MyArr[99].

However, how can I create a multi-dimension array with SetLength ?

   Hi!

Add the following to the type declartion :
     TMRecArray = Array of TRecArray;

The variable should be
ARecArray : TMRecArray;

Then to initialize the multidimenisionalarray
like this

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
   i,j,max : Integer;
begin
     max := 100
     SetLength(ARecArray,max);
     for j := 0 to max-1 do
     begin
          SetLength(ARecArray[j],max);
     end;
     for i := 0 to max-1 do
         for j := 0 to max-1 do
           ARecArray[i][j].<record field name> := <what ever>;
end;

This example is a 100x100 matrix. If you want to add a dimmension to your array then you just add in the type declaration <a new name of array type> : <the last name of array type> and so on. And the variable to the new name of the array type.
Then in the initalization you should add some code like this

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
   i,j...,z,max : Integer;
begin
     max := 100
     SetLength(ARecArray,max);
     for j := 0 to max-1 do
     begin
          SetLength(ARecArray[j],max);
          for k := 0 to max-1 do
          begin
              SetLength(ARecArray[j][k],max);
              for ...
              begin
                  SetLength(ARecArray[j][k]....,max);
              end
          end;
     end;
end;
 
The for loops for each additional dimmension should be like the for k:= - loop.

Just remember to free the memory :)

Tomas Helgi
