     I may be reinventing the wheel here, but so far I have yet to find a built in Delphi function that will convert a string to proper case. I found this code somewhere on the web a while back, lost it, and managed to recreate it last night.


NOTE:Make sure to add "StrUtils" to your Uses section

function properCase(sBuffer: string):string;
    iLen, iIndex: integer;
    iLen := Length(sBuffer);
    sBuffer:= Uppercase(MidStr(sBuffer, 1, 1)) + Lowercase(MidStr(sBuffer,2, iLen));

    for iIndex := 0 to iLen do
      if MidStr(sBuffer, iIndex, 1) = ' ' then
          sBuffer := MidStr(sBuffer, 0, iIndex) + Uppercase(MidStr(sBuffer, iIndex + 1, 1)) + Lowercase(MidStr(sBuffer, iIndex + 2, iLen));

    Result := sBuffer;
