Hi,

Who can help me to solve the errors in this procedure:
procedure TForm1.FileBtnClick(Sender: TObject);
var aText: string;
begin
  aText := '';
  if (TreeView1.Selected <> nil) and (TreeView1.Selected.ImageIndex = 15) then
  begin
      InputQuery('New Item', 'New Item Name:', aText)
      if length (trim(aText)) = 0 then      <==========================
        repeat
          MessageBox(0, 'You must enter an item name.', 'Error', MB_OK + MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
        until length(trim(aText)) > 0;
        end;
       if length(trim(aText)) > 0 then  AddItem(aText, 17, TreeView1.Selected);
     end;
  end else                   <==========================
    ShowMessage('Select a folder in the treeview first.');
end;

Errors:

SteveBay,

let me explain:
§ I was declared once the nerdiest nerd of all times @ EE (at some EE conference)... looking at all questions of EE all the time ...
§ seriously, my programming started with Turbo Pascal and then Borland Delphi. despite the fact that it is thousands of years ago (at least), some principles are still the same, and even the same across the different languages

§ some concurrence might do good, no ? 8)
