Hi Folks!

I have about 20 questions to ask. For example:

1.Whats the best Delphi resource on the internet?
2.How many questions did you ask already?
3.Do you ever answer questions yourself?
4. and so on.....

Ofcourse it should report the answers, preferrably in a simple text document, prefixed by the questions. Like this:

1.Whats the best Delphi resource on the internet?
EE ofcourse!!
2.How Many questions did you ask already?
A billion!

Now there must be a way to feed questions (by using textdocument) to the program withouth a message dialog for each question.....and still collect all answers....who can help me out here? (sample code please)

Kindest regards,

Dweeeeeeepsta

well, it depends on how you feed the data, or more better said, in what format you have the questions.

for exmaple, if you have the questions in one text document, one question per line, you can do something like in the attached code (written directly in the browser but should work just fine. let mw know if it doesn't; I'll then fire up an IDE to test it :P

is this something that you are looking for? if not, I'll need more detail explanation on what youa re trying to do.


var s,t:tstringlist;
    i:integer;
    a:string;
begin
  s:=tstringlist.create;
  try
    t:=tstringlist.create;
    try
      s.loadfromfile('questions.txt');
      for i:=1 to s.count do
      begin
        if not InputQuery('Give your answer', s[i-1], a) then
          a:='';// no answer given
        t.add(s[i-1]);// store question
        t.add(a);// store answer
      end;
    finally
      freeandnil(t);
    end;
  finally
    freeandnil(s);
  end;
end;
