You can use Indy (units IdHashMessageDigest and idHash)...

use IdHashMessageDigest and idHash  from Indy.

function GetMD5from str(string:str)
begin
with TIdHashMessageDigest5.Create do
try
    Result := TIdHash128.AsHex(HashValue(str));
finally
    Free;
end;

Thanks Rinfo,

I could use the units but I got this error:

 E2003 Undeclared identifier: 'TIdHash128'

This is the entire code used by me

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs,IdHashMessageDigest,idHash, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    function GetMD5fromstr(str1:String):String;
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);

begin
   showMessage(GetMd5fromstr('Hello'));
end;

function Tform1.GetMD5fromstr(str1:string) :String;
begin
with TIdHashMessageDigest5.Create do
try
    Result := TIdHash128.AsHex(HashValue(str1));
finally
    Free;
end;
end;

end.

Its working perfectly.

For DelphiXE2
include these in uses
Winapi.Windows, Winapi.Messages, System.SysUtils, System.Variants, System.Classes, Vcl.Graphics, Vcl.Controls, Vcl.Forms, Vcl.Dialogs, Vcl.StdCtrls, IdHashMessageDigest, IdGlobal;

and use this function
function GetMD5String (Str: String; ADestEncoding: TIdTextEncoding = nil): String;
    var MD5: TIdHashMessageDigest5;
    begin
          MD5: = TIdHashMessageDigest5.Create;
          try
          Result: = LowerCase (MD5.HashStringAsHex (Str, ADestEncoding));
          finally FreeAndNil (MD5);
    end;
    end;
