in the sysutils unit there is a function

uses SysUtils;


ChangeFileExt(MyFileName,'');

pass it a nil string and you get no extension

In your case....

ChangeFileExt('Hello.java','');

will return

'Hello'

Hi,

If you want the resulting filename to include the path:
FileNameWithoutExt := Copy(FileName, 1, Pos(ExtractFileExt(FileName), FileName) - 1);

If you want the filename, without the path:
FileName := ExtractFileName(FileName);
FileNameWithoutExt := Copy(FileName, 1, Pos(ExtractFileExt(FileName), FileName) - 1);

Actaully ChangeFileExt will do it with the path as well

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  ShowMessage(ChangeFileExt(OpenDialog1.FileName, ''));
end;


if you dont want the path, do this

ExtractFileName(ChangeFileExt(OpenDialog1.FileName, ''));

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  ShowMessage(ExtractFileName(ChangeFileExt(OpenDialog1.FileName, '')));
end;


Hope This Helps!

actually my comment and Shane's are the same, but he uses less lines of code :-)

(in the first place I thought that ChangeFileExt is a procedure, not a function)

function getfname(file:string):string;
var
ext,ft:string;b,l:integer;
begin

ft:=extractfilename(file);
ext:=extractfileext(ft);
b:=pos(ext,ft);
delete(ft,b,length(ext));

result:=ft;
end;
