Searching for Uppercase characters in a string

Searching for Uppercase characters in a string

Searching for Uppercase characters in a string

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could provide a function to search for Uppercase characters in string, except the first one. This is what I need to do, search for Caps in a string, and when found, insert a space in front of it, e.g:

TheFantasticCollection to The Fantastic Collection

Thanks in advance.

RE: Searching for Uppercase characters in a string

Loop through the characters in your string, where s is a string and a is your loop counter you can say s[a] and the IsUpper() function to test if the character is upper case. Start the loop at the second char if you don't want to test it.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, my knowledge of that kind of coding is virtually non-existent. So I'm still in the dark :)

RE: Searching for Uppercase characters in a string

Try something like this:

CODE -->

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  s: string;
  i: integer;
  s := 'TheFantasticCollection';
  i := Length(s);
  while i > 1 do
      if IsUpper(s[i]) then
          Insert(' ', s, i);

ps: you need to add "character" or "System.Character" to uses

Hope this helps.
