: : How Can I get the ASC code from any CHAR.
: : Using CHR(65) the result is 'A'.
: : In Clipper the function ASC do that ASC('A') result 65. But, in Delphi (or Pascal) I don't know how.

: : Thanks any help

: The Delphi function is ORD.

: For example, Ord('A') returns 65

What data type is required for this?
I have this working if I use a static value in the code (i.e. s := IntToStr(Ord('#'));), but if I want # to be replaced by the value of an input box, I keep getting errors. I have tried converting the input to a string, real, integer, but I have had no luck. Can someone help me with an example piece of code?
