Description

Returns a specified parameter from the command line.

ParamStr returns the parameter from the command line that corresponds to Index, or an empty string if Index is greater than ParamCount. For example, an Index value of 2 returns the second command-line parameter.

Note: ParamStr(0) returns the path and file name of the executing program (for example, C:\TEST\MYPROG.EXE).


Note: Use double quotation marks to wrap multiple words as one parameter (such as long file names containing spaces).
