i'm not sure if this can be done, but i'd like to read in a string, and then reference a component from it.

please let me know if this is doable (and an example of it working).

here is a simple example :
ident_txt: string;
ident_txt := 'form1_unit.Form1.Label1.Caption';

// you can do
form1_unit.Form1.Label1.Caption := 'hello world';

// you CANT do
//(ident_txt) := 'hello world';
// or
//&&ident_txt := 'hello world';
// or something like that
