Compares two strings by their ordinal value, without case sensitivity.

CompareText compares S1 and S2 and returns 0 if they are equal. If S1 is greater than S2, CompareText returns an integer greater than 0. If S1 is less than S2, CompareText returns an integer less than 0. CompareText is not case sensitive and is not affected by the current locale, when using the first CompareText overloaded method.

The LocaleOptions parameter of the second CompareText overloaded method is of type TLocaleOptions and defines a choice of dependent and independent locale options. For more information, please refer to the TLocaleOptions topic.
