editing filename in string

Hi,

I have a string with a filename in it. I need to separate the name form the extension, into two strings. I know how to do this by reading each character and looking for the period. What I am asking, is if there is something in Delphi to do this automatically.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Ext, FilePart, FileName: string;
begin
  FileName := 'test.txt';
  Ext := ExtractFileExt(FileName);
  FilePart := ChangeFileExt(Filename, '');
  ShowMessage(Ext + '  ' +  FilePart);
end;

Open in new window
