Save text as HTML

Dear experts,

When the a user choose Menu-item Test -> Test Fill Buf, the TImage-Canvas
will be filled with characters and numbers. Now I want to make another menu-
item called Send Mail, to copy the canvas to clipboard and paste it automaticly
in the body of the mail.

I have this procedure for opening the installed e-mail client:

procedure TForm1.SendMail1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShellExecute(0, 'open', 'mailto:',
    nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
end;

And this is a procedure I made to select all text of the canvas:

procedure TForm1.SaveAsText;
var
  i, j: integer;
  s: string;
begin
  s := '';
  for i := 1 to SCRROWS do
  begin
    for j := 1 to SCRCOLS do
      if (ScrBuf[i, j].Data in ['A'..'Z', 'a'..'z', '0'..'9', ' ',
        ',', '!', '@', '#', '$', '%', '^', '&', '*', '(', '[', ']', ')',
          '<', '>', ';', ':', '=', '-', '.', '/', '\', '+', '"', '|']) then
        s := s + ScrBuf[i, j].Data;
    if s <> '' then s := s + #13#10;
  end;
  with Clipboard do
  begin
    open;
    astext := s;
    close;
  end;
end;

How can I get automaticly the text of the canvas in to the body of the mail
and display it exactly the same as the canvas?

I have put an example on my site: http://members.home.nl/peterkiers/
(beneath the Under Construction bar, you see a floppy disk)

Oke, but their is one problem:

For example if the text is displayed on the canvas
like this:

                              A
                           B   C
                         D       E
                       F            G
                     H                I

In the body-part the text appears like this:

ABCDEFGHI

And it has to be exactly like it is displayed on the canvas, I think the only way to do that is save the
text as HTML.

procedure TForm1.SendMail1Click(Sender: TObject);

  i, j: integer;
  s: string;
begin
  s := '';
  for i := 1 to SCRROWS do
  begin
    for j := 1 to SCRCOLS do

        ',', '!', '@', '#', '$', '%', '^', '&', '*', '(', '[', ']', ')',
          '<', '>', ';', ':', '=', '-', '.', '/', '\', '+', '"', '|']) then
        s := s + ScrBuf[i, j].Data;
    if s <> '' then s := s +'%0a';
  end;
  ShellExecute(0, 'open', pchar('mailto:&Body='+ s),
    nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
end;

Is this OK for you

procedure TForm1.SendMail1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  i, j: integer;
  s,CurLine: string;
  function FilterTextAndAddNewLine(S:string):String;
    var textFilter:TStringList;
        NumOfBlankLinesAbove:Integer;
        i, j: integer;
  begin
     Result:='';
     textFilter:=TStringList.Create;
     textFilter.Text:=S;
     NumOfBlankLinesAbove:=0;

     for i:=0 to textFilter.Count-1 do
     begin
        if textFilter.Strings[i]='' then inc(NumOfBlankLinesAbove)
        else
        begin
           for j:=1 to NumOfBlankLinesAbove do Result:=Result+#13#10;
           Result:=Result+textFilter.Strings[i]+#13#10;
           NumOfBlankLinesAbove:=0;
        end;
     end;

     textFilter.Text:=Result;
     Result:='';
     for i:=0 to textFilter.Count-1 do
     begin
        Result:=Result+textFilter.Strings[i]+'%0a';
     end;

     textFilter.Free;
  end;
begin
  s := '';
  for i := 1 to SCRROWS do
  begin
    CurLine:='';
    for j := 1 to SCRCOLS do
      if (ScrBuf[i, j].Data in ['A'..'Z', 'a'..'z', '0'..'9', ' ',
        ',', '!', '@', '#', '$', '%', '^', '&', '*', '(', '[', ']', ')',
          '<', '>', ';', ':', '=', '-', '.', '/', '\', '+', '"', '|']) then
        CurLine := CurLine + ScrBuf[i, j].Data
      else if ScrBuf[i, j].Data=#0 then CurLine:=CurLine+' ';
    s := s+TrimRight(CurLine) +#13#10;
  end;
  s:=FilterTextAndAddNewLine(s);
  ShellExecute(0, 'open', pchar('mailto:&Body='+ s),
    nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
end;

Almost when i select Test -> Test Field On
and then select Menu-item Send Mail and use
your example I get this:

Field Test Screen

            Default      Reverse      Blink        Underline
Red:       ABCabc123   ABCabc123   ABCabc123   ABCabc123
Pink:      ABCabc123   ABCabc123   ABCabc123   ABCabc123
Green:     ABCabc123   ABCabc123   ABCabc1

You see not it's not like the text on the canvas.
