I want to write a for loop of some kind that will go through all of the editboxes on my form.

e.g.
for editbox in form
begin
  //do processing on current editbox
end

I'm sure there's an easy solution to this but I'm new with delphi and am having trouble finding a good reference.

I use a similar thing to get the default text out of my edit boxes....

  for x := 0 to ComponentCount-1 do
    if Components[x] is TEdit then
      (Components[x] as TEdit).Text := '';

Hope that helps!

It's part of my default .FormCreate method:

procedure TfrmBTCollectMain.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var x: integer;
begin
  inherited;
  Application.Title := Caption;
  for x := 0 to ComponentCount-1 do
    if Components[x] is TEdit then
      (Components[x] as TEdit).Text := '';
end;
