This may be simple but it's been a hard day!

If the first line of a memo is blank, how do I delete it?

I am using Delphi 6. Many thanks for your help.

If memo1.lines.count > 0 then
  If memo1.lines[0] := '' then
    memo1.lines.delete(0);

I think thats it.

Even
If memo1.lines.count > 0 then
  If trim(memo1.lines[0]) = '' then
    memo1.lines.delete(0);

would be better just incase someone has put a space in that first line.

oh yea and it's = not := on the second line :P
