Indy IRC

Hi,

I'm trying to use the indy IRC component to create a simple chat client, but I'm having some weird problems.
I have this code:

procedure TForm1.IRCMessage(Sender: TObject; AUser: TIdIRCUser;
  AChannel: TIdIRCChannel; Content: String);
begin
      Display1.Lines.Add('--' + PansiChar(AUser) + ': ' + Content); // Display1 is a memo
end;

Using that, this is what I get when some says something on the channel I have it join:
--? G: Test
Every nickname is replaced by something like that. I tried using String(AUser) and AnsiString(AUser) too, but they have the same results. I also looked at the indy demos, and I didn't find any examples for the IRC Component, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
- MelchaS

Hello,

This is because AUser : TIdIRCUser is a class, not a string.  You can solve this problem by doing the following:

Display1.Lines.Add('--' + AUser.Nick + ': ' + Content);

Hope this helps.
