Hi
I'm learning Delphi.
This must be easy.
I have a stringlist filled with rows of text. Each row has an object associated with it.
How do I copy each row's text and object into a listbox?

if you don't want to loose previous content of the listbox you can use AddStrings
Listbox1.Items.AddStrings(StringList);

Thanks guys, especially mikelittlewood.

Sorry for delay replying. Had to leave the desk and do something else.

For some reason I thought I had to assign each line in a loop using .count and [index].

MerijnB: doesn't AddStrings simply add the strings and not the objects?

nope, from classes.pas:

procedure TStrings.AddStrings(Strings: TStrings);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  BeginUpdate;
  try
    for I := 0 to Strings.Count - 1 do
      AddObject(Strings[I], Strings.Objects[I]);
  finally
    EndUpdate;
  end;
end;

Upped the points and split them (I hope) between mikelittlewood and MerijnB.

Thanks. Both comments highly useful.
