no. You will have to loop through the entire array to find the highest value.

var x,idx,HighValue:Integer;
begin
idx := -1;
HighValue := Low(Integer);
for x:=low(myarray) to high(myarray) do
  if myarray[x] > HighValue then
    begin
      HighValue := myarray[x] ;
      idx :=x;
    end;

ShowMessage('Highest value is at index '+IntToStr(idx));
end;
