Description

Retrieves an integer value from an .ini file.

Call ReadInteger to read an integer value from an .ini file. Section identifies the section in the file that contains the desired key. Ident is the name of the key (identifier) from which to retrieve the value. Default is the integer value to return if the:

  • Section does not exist
  • Key does not exist.
  • Data value for the key is not assigned.
Tip: ReadInteger can read and interpret C-style hexadecimal integers that are present in the .ini file.

For instance, if you have the following .ini file contents:

[MySection]
MyID1=0x16

then the following call to ReadInteger returns 22.

var
  IniFile: TIniFile;

begin
  ShowMessage(IniFile.ReadInteger('MySection', 'MyID1', 0));
end;
