How to make a procedure in Delphi? [Edit]

I want to know how to make a procedure in Delphi. I will be calling this procedure whenever value of EditBox, ComboBox and RadioButton(s) change.


procedure GetName();
    if TForm1.edbName.Text <> '' then

              if TForm1.TComboBox.Text <> '' then

                      if TForm1.rdbPersonal.Checked then
                               TForm1.edbName.Text := Name1 + 'Dummy'

                      else if TForm1.rdbCommercial.Checked then
                               TForm1.edbName.Text := Name2 + 'Dummy'

                      else if TForm1.rdbEdu.Checked then
                                TForm1.edbName.Text := Name3 + 'Dummy'

                      else if TForm1.rdbSite.Checked then
                                TForm1.edbName.Text := Name4 + 'Dummy'

                      else if TForm1.rdbInstitution.Checked then
                                TForm1.edbName.Text := Name5 + 'Dummy'



The above code gives error and doesn't compile. Name1 to 5 are strings.

In general it would help if you told us what part doesn't compile and what is the error message - but its going to you reference to a class TForm1.TComboBox.Text  - should be TForm1.MyComboxInstance.Text

Also it would be more sensible if you procedure was part of the form
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    edbName: TEdit;
    MyComboxInstance: TComboBox;
    rdbPersonal ...
    { Private declarations }
     procedure GetName;
    { Public declarations }

procedure TForm1.GetName;
   if  edbName.Text <> '' then
              if MyComboxInstance.Text <> '' then // <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<was wrong here
                      if rdbPersonal.Checked then
                               edbName.Text := Name1 + 'Dummy'

Using Delphi 7 and Delphi 2010
I had a project in Delphi 7. I worked on it in Delphi 2010. When I try to open the .dpr again in Delphi 7, the IDE toolbar widens across both monitors, and Delphi 7 locks up. It appears that Delphi 2010 modifies the .dpr in a way that makes Delphi 7 unable to open it again. All my forms & units appear to open fine in D7 after D2010, except for the warnings on the ExplicitHeight and ExplicitWidth properties being missing... I can easily recreate the .dpr, but is this expected behavior? Thanks. Tom Field wrote: > I had a project in Delphi 7. > > I worked o...

To use or not to use Delphi
Sadly, it seems to me that there is a sort of race between the two threads, for and against using Delphi in new projects, with more or less the same users posting in both threads. Arguments are fiercely debated in both camps. Borland had their own vision. As a community, now that Delphi has changed ownership I believe we should try to be more consistent, more clear, and more articulate in what we expect from Embercadero in terms of Delphi. We can contribute to keeping Delphi alive and moving in the right direction. "Laurent Cocea" schrieb: > Sadly, it seems to me that there ...

Delphi vs Winform
