How To Convert a 4 Byte Number In String Form To a Numeric Array

I think I previously posted this in the wrong zone. Sorry for the inconvenience.


I have 10 digit decimal numbers (4 bytes each) in string form that I need to convert to numeric form so that I can place them in an an array.

My array is declared as:


TModemSigArray  = array[0..1499] of dword;

ModemSigArray: TModemStatArray;


The numbers in string form arrive by an enet port and all are 10 digits long. When I convert using "StrToInt" and place it in the array, the number that is represented in the array is different (smaller) than the original.

My code:

E := StrToInt(1234567890);              //Convert from string to integer
ModemSigArray[IDCounter] := E;      //Load array

The numbers have not exceeded the Integer limitaion of 2,147,483,648. However I have tried using  StrToInt64, converting to Hex (because of the 64 bit limitation), to no avail.

Would you please post the code you used, as the following code works:

TModemSigArray  = array[0..1499] of dword;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  ModemSigArray: TModemSigArray;
  E := StrToInt('1234567890');
  ModemSigArray[0] := E;

If your numbers are decimal, you use Float instead of Int.
