Description

Returns the name portion of a string that is a name value pair.

TStrings calls ExtractName internally to parse strings that are name-value pairs and return the name portion.

S is the string to parse. If the string S:

  • Is a name-value pair, ExtractName returns the name portion.
  • Is not a name-value pair, ExtractName returns:
    • The entire string S when AllNames is True.
    • An empty string when AllNames is False.
      Note: If AllNames is not specified is False by default.
