I need to figure out this JvMultiStringHolder from the JVCL Library.

how to add new string holders at runtime
how to set / get the name of that string holder
how to view the text in the string holder
how to delete a string holder

if someone could provide an example project for me that would be great :)

You first need to look at it as a StringList with each Item in that "StringList" being another StringList. Therefore multiple StringLists wihtin one Named StringList. (Personally it is easier to create seperate stringlist for such). Anyway..

Add new string holder:
At Runtime: JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.Add;
At Design Time: Add under MutipleStrings.

Set the name:
Get the name: Some Boolean := JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.DoesNameExist('MYTestHolder');
or for individual StringLists:
JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.Items[0].Name := 'StringHolder1';
At Runtime: JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.Items[2].Name := 'TestHolder1';

View the text:
Edit 1.Text := := JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.Items[0].Strings[2];

Delete a string holder:
JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.Delete(3);

To delete a string within a string holder:
JvMultiStringHolder1.MultipleStrings.Items[0].Strings.Delete(3);

I hope this gets you started. Again think of it like:

                 JvMultiStringHolder1
                                 |
StringList1(Name)               StringList2(Name)
         |                                  |
        Item 1                       Item1
        Item 2                       Item 2
        Etc.                               Etc.

I hope the above shows up and I hope this helped you get started!
