Please report a missing documentation, it's documented somewhere AFAIR (but I can't find it now).

Hi,

I'm just trying to use a case statement with string cases and I'm getting an error.

I'm using a nightly build version FPC Version 3.1.1 (2015/04/16) SVN Revision 48706.

--- Code: ---       
Case sField Of
        'Final_Invoice' :
           sFilterString := sFilterString + sField + '=''' + comboFilterDropdown.KeyValue + '''' ;
end;

--- End code ---

sField is declared as a string and the case elements are strings, but the error says that there is a mismatch, see attachment.

This discussion indicates that strings were allowed in V2.6.0, but unless I'm doing something very silly, I can't get it to compile.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Dave

Hello, I guess you use

--- Code: ---{$mode delphi}
--- End code ---

It works here with FPC 3.1.1 and

--- Code: ---{$mode objfpc}
--- End code ---

It works in FPC/ObjFPC mode only. Delphi, TP, MacPas and ISO mode doesn't support it for compatibility.
