Hey

I have modified various parts of my program, as was advised to me by Rllibby, and I now have the following question.

I have created 2 memoboxes [mmo1 + mmo2], with lines of text in them [help for the user], now i have also created a checkbox which, if checked, shows them to the user [after next restart], this all goes well, as long as I only use one memobox, i have a hard time with performing more than one action after an [If... Then] statement, as shown below


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
Begin
   stat1.Panels[0].Text:=' FavoriteHell v1.0';
   Inifile := TIniFile.Create(Changefileext(application.exename, ' .INI'));
  with Inifile do
      begin
        showhelp:= ReadBool('Help','showhelp',True);
        chk1.Checked:=showhelp;
        if showhelp then mmo1.Visible:= True; //memo 1 is visible
        if mmo1.Visible:= True then mmo2.Visible:= True; //this does not work:(
        free;
      end;

end;

Neither did this work:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
Begin
    stat1.Panels[0].Text:=' FavoriteHell v1.0';
   Inifile := TIniFile.Create(Changefileext(application.exename, ' .INI'));
  with Inifile do
      begin
        showhelp:= ReadBool('Help','showhelp',True);
        chk1.Checked:=showhelp;
        if showhelp then mmo1.Visible:= True and mmo2.visible:= true;
        free;
      end;

end;


How can the above be fixed?

 // Need to test equality, not perform an assignment  
 if mmo1.Visible:= True then mmo2.Visible:= True; //this does not work:(

should be

  if mmo1.Visible then mmo2.Visible:=True;


// two assignments, not an and operation
if showhelp then mmo1.Visible:= True and mmo2.visible:= true;

should be

if showhelp then
begin
 mmo1.Visible:=True;
 mmo2.Visible:=True;
end;
