you can use it both ways:
- at create:    
  strm := TStringStream.Create(sText_var);
- at later time:
  strm := TStringStream.Create('');
  strm.WriteString(sText_var);

read:
  strm.Position := 0;
  sResult := strm.ReadString(strm.Size);

Many thanks for your quick answer, sinisav
It is "normal" that the string (sResult in your example) is unicode ?
Unicode means a even number of bytes so what happens if the stream contains an odd number of bytes ?
Thanks

As far I can see (in source :-) it is irrelevant what type of string is. Internally all goes with byte operation. If you put unicode string then you must read as unicode, same with ansistring. What version of Delphi you have? In newer Delphi (XEx) there is Encoding property which tells you what type of string is on, or when you before you write to stream set this prop. to right value.
