You need to convert a float or double to a string in pascal




You can use the Function FloatToStr wich takes a float parameter. You can use the DoubleToStr for converting a double.

Here a little example:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var s : string;
var mydoubleD : double;
   mydoubleD := 3.14152341234234;
   s := FloatToStr( mydoubleD );

   //you could as well use s in the ShowMessage :-)
   ShowMessage('Your Double is: ' + FloatToStr(mydoubleD));
