Converting enumerated type values into strings (Views: 101)

Problem/Question/Abstract:

How to convert font style values into string values?

Answer:

For converting enumerated type values into string we should use the GetEnumName function from TypInfo unit.  Below is example how to perform this action for TFontStyle type and for our custom type:

type
TOurType = (otFirst, otSecond, otThird, otForth, otFifth, otLast);

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
OT: TOurType;
FT: TFontStyle;
begin
// TFontStyle values
Memo1.Lines.Add('The TFontStyle values:');
for FT := Low(TFontStyle) to High(TFontStyle) do
Memo1.Lines.Add(GetEnumName(TypeInfo(TFontStyle), ord(FT)));

// The custom TOurType values
Memo1.Lines.Add('The TOurType values:');
for OT := Low(TOurType) to High(TOurType) do
Memo1.Lines.Add(GetEnumName(TypeInfo(TOurType), ord(OT)));
end;
