How can I create a procedure that stores a value to a list of variables.

I tried this:

Procedure StoreInt( value:integer; var arr:array of integer);
var i:integer;
begin
      For i:=1 to high(arr) do
      arr[i]:=value;      
end;


var x,y,z:Integer
........
StoreInt(10,[x,y,z]);


When I compile the application I receive the following error: "Constant object cannot be passed as var parameter"

I didn't understood me. i want to store a single value to more variables not to the items of an array;

i.e
I replace
x:=10;
y:=10;
z:=10;

with StoreInt(10,x,y,z);

So that, how can i make x,y,z be equal with 10 after calling StoreInt as above?

// after StoreInt you can make a procedure which transform the variant array A into array of Integers

Procedure StoreInt( value : integer; var arr : Variant);
var
  counter    : Integer;
begin
  For counter := VarArrayLowBound(arr, 1) to VarArrayHighBound(arr, 1) do
    begin
      arr[counter] := value;
    end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  x, y, z : Integer;
  a : variant;
begin
  a := VarArrayOf([x, y, z]);
  StoreInt(10, a);

  Label1.Caption := VarToStr(a[0]);
  Label2.Caption := VarToStr(a[1]);
  Label3.Caption := VarToStr(a[2]);
end;

it works but after calling the StoreInt procedure I must convert the values:
i.e
x:=vartoint(a[0]); etc

and is quicker to use the classic method:
x:=10 etc.

Don't you know any other method?
