searching for *.lang

I want to look for any files with the extension .lang in a specified directory and and display the filenames without the extensions in a combo-box.

Can anyone plz give me some advice on how to do this ?

Thx in advance

Try this:
procedure GetFileList( FileList: TStringList; inDir, Extension : String );
  procedure ProcessSearchRec( aSearchRec : TSearchRec );
  var
    sDate: String;
    w32fd: TWin32FindData;
    fct: TFileTime;
  begin
     if ( aSearchRec.Attr and faDirectory ) <> 0 then
     begin
       if ( aSearchRec.Name <> '.' ) and
          ( aSearchRec.Name <> '..' ) then
       begin
         GetFileList( FileList, Extension, InDir + '\' + aSearchRec.Name );
       end;
    end
    else
    begin
      FileList.Add(aSearchRec.Name);
    end;
  end;
var
  CurDir : String;
  aSearchRec : TSearchRec;
begin
  CurDir := inDir + '\' + Extension;
  if FindFirst( CurDir, faAnyFile, aSearchRec ) = 0 then
  begin
    ProcessSearchRec( aSearchRec );
    while FindNext( aSearchRec ) = 0 do
      ProcessSearchRec( aSearchRec );
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
var
 FL: TStringList;
begin
 FL := TStringList.Create;
 FL.Sorted := True;
 GetFileList( FL, 'c:\eddie', '*.lang' );
 ComboBox1.Items.Assign(FL);
 FL.Free;
end;

You will have to cut the extesnions of the filename when adding to the FileList, I forgot to do that.

To cut the extension off:
var s : string;
s := ExtractFileName(aSearchRec.Name);
s := Copy(s, 1, Length(s) - Length(ExtractFileExt(s));
