how do I centre text in a textedit box?

I have declared two variables in the private declaration section  as follows

Private
code1:string;
code2:string

When I try to declare and set them at the same time

code1:string :='PASSWORD';
code2: string :='USERNAME'
I get an error

and when I try to use the variables elsewhere I also get errors.  I have tried the help files bat cannot find anywhere that describes how and where to set the variables

hi,

as far as i know,
is this
>code1:string :='PASSWORD';
only allowed for global vars

initialize youe private members in your create-constructor of your object like

constructor TYourObjectName.Create(MaybeParameters);
begin
  inherited create(MaybeParameters);
  code1 := 'PASSWORD';
  code2 := 'USERNAME';
end;

or if it a form-object,
then use the oncreate-event for this
(no inherited is needed there)

hope this helps

meikl ;-)

You have two questions ? Not sure but ...

For first part (how do I centre text in a textedit box?)read next tip:
http://www.swissdelphicenter.ch/torry/showcode.php?id=714

For second part if use in an application use :

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 code1 := 'PASSWORD';
 code2 := 'USERNAME';
end;

if use these into a component :

constructor TYourComponent.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
 inherited Create(AOwner);
 code1 := 'PASSWORD';
 code2 := 'USERNAME';
end;

Thank you, most helpful.

I have come from a vb background and am impressed with Delphi so far, although the help files seem a bit unhelpful
