Try this...

function GetText(const aDelimiter: Char;Input: string;idx:integer):string;
var
  sl: TStringlist;
begin
   sl:=TStringList.Create;
   sl.Delimiter:=aDelimiter;
   sl.DelimitedText:=Input;
   result:=sl[idx-1];
   sl.Clear;
   sl.free;
end;

Open in new window


...
GetText(',','Text1,Text2,Text3',2) = 'Text2'

string conversion to double is only possible when string value is a floating point number representation!!!

You can convert such strings using Delphi function Val() or FloatToStr()...
