[ DelphiLand FAQ ]

ok easy i think but im stumped. i read from a text file. the number is 2323. it is displayed in label1.caption. now::::: i want to read the third character in 2323 would be 2. I can understand how to do it but it has to be text. i want to read numbers.

  Initial : string;
  Name:= 'dd';
  showmessage (Initial);

this works if label1.caption contains letters not numbers. how do i get the numbers to work.
