I suppose you could use the Pos-Function to determine the position of the 'Break'-Character.
Example :

- Place 1 TButton and 2 TEdits on a Form.
- In the private section of the unit declare following function :
      function SplitString( SplitChar: String ; Source:String ; var Part1:String ; var Part2: String ): Integer;

- Put following code in the OnClick-Event of the button :

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  strSource : String;
  strP1, strP2 : String;
begin
  strSource  := '(From IdImap4 Mailboxlist:Mailbox/Sub) XXXX/YYYY';
  SplitString(')', strSource, strP1, strP2);
  Edit1.Text := strP1;
  Edit2.Text := strP2;
end;



function TForm1.SplitString( SplitChar: String ; Source: String; var Part1, Part2: String ): Integer;
begin
  Result := Pos(SplitChar, Source);
  Try
        Part1 := Copy( Source, 1, Result );
        Part2 := Copy( Source, Result+1, Length(Source) );
  except
    Result := 0;
  end;
end;


Hope te be of some help

something like this?

unit Unit1;

interface

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

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Edit1: TEdit;
    Edit2: TEdit;
    Edit3: TEdit;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

function splitstr(var astring : String; Delimiter : String) : String;
var
  p : Integer;
begin
  result := '';
  if AString <> '' then
  begin
    p := pos(Delimiter,AString);
    if p > 0 then
    begin
      result := copy(AString,1,p-1);
      AString := copy(AString,p+length(Delimiter),maxLongInt);
    end
    else
    begin
      result := AString;
      AString := '';
    end;
  end;
end;



procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var s1, s2 : string;
begin
  //discard front of 'From IdImap4 Mailboxlist:Mailbox/Sub'
  //containd in edit1
  s1 := edit1.Text;
  splitstr(s1,':');
  //s1 contains now 'Mailbox/Sub'
  //get the front part
  s2 := splitstr(s1,'/');
  //s2 contains now front part, s1 the rest
  edit2.Text := s2;  //fronpartdisplay
  edit3.Text := s1;  //rest display

end;

end.

Hi,

If you have Delphi6, you can use TStringList with DelimitedText to
split the string.

HTH,

Try this real cool technique...Very FAST, too.

var
  MyStr: String;
  MyParser: TParser;
  MS: TMemoryStream;
begin
  MyStr := '(From IdImap4 Mailboxlist:Mailbox/Sub) XXXX/YYYY';
  MS := TMemoryStream.Create;
  MS.Position := 0;
  MS.Write(MyStr[1], Length(MyStr));
  MS.Position := 0;
  MyParser := TParser.Create(MS);
  MyStr := MyParser.TokenString;
  while MyParser.Token <> toEOF do
  begin
    if MyParser.TokenSymbolIs(MyParser.TokenString) then
    begin
      MyStr := MyParser.TokenString;
      ShowMessage(MyStr);
    end;
    MyParser.NextToken;
  end;
  MyParser.Free;
  MS.Free;
end;

slashLoc := pos('/', inputString);
LeftString := Copy (inputString, 1, pos-1);
RightString := Copy (inputString, pos+1, length (inputString)-pos);
