Hi experts.
I am trying to parse a string into various components and am not sure what I am doing wrong. I am attaching the code. The error is received on the line "protocol :=  protocol + tempstr(i);"
procedure TMainForm.ViewGroupClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  i: integer;
  tempstr, protocol, port, RA, disp, point : string;
begin
 
  SLCGroupForm := TSLCGroupForm.Create(Application);
  SLCGroupForm.ShowModal;
 
  tempstr := '';
  protocol := '';
  port := '';
  RA := '';
  disp := '';
  point := '';
 
      case DMForm.T_SLCUnitSLC_Unit_Number.AsInteger of
      0:
      begin
        SLCGroupForm.ClientWidth := 233;
      end;
      1:
      begin
        SLCGroupForm.ClientWidth := 233;
      end;
      2:
      begin
        tempstr := DMForm.T_PointAID.AsString;
        for i := 1 to Length(tempstr) do
        begin
          repeat
          protocol :=  protocol + tempstr(i);
          i++;
          until tempstr(i) = '-';
          repeat
          port := port + tempstr(i);
          i++;
          until tempstr(i) = '-';
          repeat
          RA := RA + tempstr(i);
          i++;
          until tempstr(i) = '-';
          repeat
          disp := disp + tempstr(i);
          i++;
          until tempstr(i) = '-';
          repeat
          point := point + tempstr(i);
          i++;
          until i > Length(tempstr) ;
        end;
 
      end;
    end;  
 
 
end;

No problem. Your code looks impressive for a "beginner" if your profile is correct

Thanks rfwoolf,
I have been working with Delphi for a little while, but still feel like a beginner.
