Urgent! Adding 2 numbers

Posted on 2006-10-19

Hello expert.  Still an idiot with delphi and programming.
I need to read 2 numbers (num1 and num2) from the 2 TEdit box, add 700 to the  subtotal and display them in the text label.  
So far, I cannot read num2 in the 2nd tEdit box.
Please help
Thanks

Part of my code:
procedure TForm3.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
num1, num2, total: double;
errcode : integer;
begin
Val(Edit1.Text, num1, Edit2.Text,  errcode );
if errcode <> 0 then
ShowMessage('You must enter a number!')
else
begin
total := num1 + num2 + 700;
Caption := 'Total = $' + FloatToStr(total);
Label1.Caption := 'The result is:  $'+ FloatToStr(Total);
end;

why use val if you have TryStrToFloat?

uses SysUtils;

...

procedure TForm3.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var num1, num2, total: double;
begin
 if (TryStrToFloat(Edit1.Text, num1) and (TryStrToFloat(Edit2.Text, num2) then
  Label1.CAption := Format('The result is: $%n', [num1 + num2 + 700])
 else
  ShowMessage('not a valid number');
end;
