Hi experts!

I have a memo which contains '*'  characters.

I need to search for those characters and replace them with a ',' character (comma)

Could you please help?

Thanks

   Hi!

You could do it like this

procedure ReplaceText( var M : TMemo; strOLD, strNEW: string);
begin
  M := StringReplace(M.Lines.Text, strOLD, strNEW, [rfReplaceAll]);
end;

and call the function like
  ReplaceText(Memo1,'*',',');

Regards,
   Tomas Helgi
