function FindNodeByText(ATree : TTreeView; AText : String) : TTreeNode;
var I : integer;
begin
  result := nil;
  i := 0;
  while (i < ATree.Items.Count) and

a simple sample

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, Grids, ValEdit;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ValueListEditor1: TValueListEditor;
    Edit1: TEdit;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

function IsKeyInList(AList : TStrings; AKey : String) : Boolean;
begin
  result := AList.IndexOfName(AKey) > -1;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if IsKeyInList(ValueListEditor1.Strings,edit1.Text) then
    Showmessage('Key Exists')
  else
    Showmessage('Key not Exists');
end;

end.

Hay dude ive already figured it out for the valuelisteditor
it was

 for i := 0 to ValueListEditor14.Strings.Count-1 do
      begin
      value := ValueListEditor14.FindRow(noun,i);
      end;

    if value = false then
      begin
      ValueListEditor14.Values[noun] := '100';
      end;

but umm i saw a email posted just before i figured it out so i guess i owe you the extra points?
