Formats a string assembled from a AnsiStringT--format, and a series of array arguments--args.

Use Format to obtain a AnsiStringT whose value is the result of applying an array of arguments (args) to a given a format string (format). The last parameter (size) is the index of the last element in args (one less than the number of arguments).

Note that Format is a static method. The returned value is a newly allocated AnsiStringT, even if the method is called from an existing AnsiStringT instance.

For information on how Format assembles a final string from its format string and arguments, see "Format Strings" in System.SysUtils.Format.
