Hello,
I would like some suggestions on the simplest function/procedure to do the following.
I have a string as follows;

This/is_my/test string.

I need it to be changed to this
This/Is_My/Test String.

Essentially I need to search for all occurences of '/' '_' and spaces, and uppercase the character following.
Hope this makes sense.

function RickJsUpperCase(St: string): string;
 const Delimiters: set of char = ['_', '/', ' '];
 var i: integer;
 begin
  result := St;

  for i := 1 to Length(result) - 1 do
   if result[i] in Delimiters then
    result[i + 1] := UpCase(result[i + 1]);
 end;

usage:
var st: string;
begin
 st := RickJsUpperCase('This/is_my/test string.');
 form1.caption := st; // st is now 'This/Is_My/Test String.'
end;
