Selecting and Moving Parts of a String

Selecting and Moving Parts of a String

I have two TField400s. The first TField400 contains the value “12345678” and other TField400 contains the value “11111111”. I want to move the “5678” from the first TField400 and place it in the second TField400 so the value in the second TField400 will be “11115678” instead of “11111111”.

To accomplish this task, just use the Copy function for handling strings.

//Grab the string field valuesS1 := MyTable.FieldByName('Field1').AsString;S2 := MyTable.FieldByName('Field2').AsString;//Now copy the first four bytes of Field2 and concatenate the second four bytes of Field1 to it.MyTable.FieldByName('Field2').AsString := Copy(S2, 1, 4) + Copy(S1, 5, 4);

Copy takes three parameters. The first is a string value, the second is the index to start copying from, and the third is the number of bytes to copy.
