Load a Text File Into a Memo

Load a Text File Into a Memo

Question:
How do I read a file on the A: drive into my program and then display the contents into an edit box?

Answer:
I’m not sure you’d want to load the contents to an edit box, especially if it’s a large file. But if you use a TMemo, you can use the TMemo.Lines.LoadFromFile method to load a text file into the memo. You just supply the file name, and the component will do the rest.
