Undeclared identifier ToString

Undeclared identifier ToString

Undeclared identifier ToString


CODE --> delphi

Writeln('rows affected: ' + ADODataset1.Recordset.RecordCount.ToString());  // undeclared identifier ToString 

If I leave out ToString() I get a compile error and if I leave it in ToString is underlined in red and says undeclared identifier ToString

The program compiles and runs ok, so what is this some sort of bug in the IDE and is there a fix for it?

RE: Undeclared identifier ToString

Add System.SysUtils to your Uses clause.

RE: Undeclared identifier ToString


CODE --> delphi

  Data.Win.ADODB, System.SysUtils, ActiveX; 

It's already there.

RE: Undeclared identifier ToString

You should also be able to do this:

CODE --> pascal

Writeln('rows affected: ' + IntToStr(ADODataset1.Recordset.RecordCount)); 

RE: Undeclared identifier ToString

Yes, that will be the way to do it to avoid the syntax error message so have switched to that.

RE: Undeclared identifier ToString

It should work, the ToString() record helper is there in SysUtils...
