TEdit Text Replacement function

Hey all,

Hope I can explain this somewhat good.

I have 12 TEdit placed on my form, all filled with different names in the text field. Also, I have a Listbox1 filled with all the names + 10 to 15 other names.

When the user clicks on one of the names in the Listbox1, the name gets chosen and the user gets to choose on which TEdit (out of the 12) to place the name.

No problem so far; however, if the name chosen already exists on another TEdit then those two TEdit should be swapped with eachother.

Example:

Edit1.Text := 'Johnson';
Edit2.Text := 'Anderson';
Edit3.Text := 'Swanson';

Listbox1 contains the names Peterson, Swanson, Anderson, Johnson, Perry.

Let's say the user picks 'Swanson' from the Listbox1 and then clicks on Edit1 (Edit1.Text := Listbox1.Items[Listbox1.ItemIndex]) - then, as Swanson already exists on Edit3, Johnson and Swanson should just switch place from Edit3<->Edit1.

And the new result would be:

Edit1.Text := 'Swanson';
Edit2.Text := 'Anderson';
Edit3.Text := 'Johnson';

What would be the most efficient way to achieve this, with as little code as possible? Seeing as this code would have to be on every Edit*.click; ?

Hope you understood me somewhat, otherwise I'll be happy to give it another try :)

This should work for you. Kind of a basic example but it works.
