Load the contents of a file as a series of strings.


Source position: classesh.inc line 743

LoadFromFile loads the contents of a file into the stringlist. Each line in the file (as marked by the end-of-line marker of the particular OS the application runs on) becomes one string in the stringlist. This action replaces the contents of the stringlist, it does not append the strings to the current content.

LoadFromFile simply creates a file stream with the given filename, and then executes TStrings.LoadfromStream; after that the file stream object is destroyed again.
