# function to read an array of doubles into a string variable

Posted on 2006-06-28

hi there experts!!!!!

i have an array. i call it myarray(). this is an array of doubles.this is a static array.it has just two elements.

e.g myarray(0)=2,34
myarry(1)=34,5

the values of the array are x,y coordinates that represent a point which happens to be the center of a circle.

i need a function in delphi that will loop through the items of this array and will store its values in a string variable

something like this

function readarrayofdoublesinasting (const arr : array of doubles) :String;
var n : integer;
begin
for n := low(arr) to high(arr) do
//here loop through the items of the array
result := (str1,str2)
//where str1 and str2 are the x,y coordinates converted into a comma delimited string
end;
end;

urgent help needed

thanks  a lot

function readarrayofdoublesinasting (const arr : array of doubles) :String;
var n : integer;
begin
result:= '';
for n := low(arr) to high(arr)
do result:= result + FloatToStr(arr[n])+',';
SetLength(result, length(result)-1); //get rid of last comma
end;

I suggest

type
MyPoint = record
X : Double;
Y : Double;
end;
MyResult = record
Str1, Str2 : String;
end;

function myfunc(myarray : array of MyPoint) : MyResult;
var
i : integer;
begin
For i := low(myarray) to high(myarray) do
begin
Result.Str1 := Result.Str1 + ',' + FloatToStr(myarray[i].X);
Result.Str2 := Result.Str2 + ',' + FloatToStr(myarray[i].Y);
end
SetLength(Result.Str1, length(Result.Str1)-1);
SetLength(Result.Str2, length(Result.Str2)-1);
end;
