Try to transform a string to a GUID


Source position: intfh.inc line 32

function TryStringToGUID(

  const S: string;

  out Guid: TGuid



TryStringToGUID tries to convert the string S to a TGUID value, returned in GUID. It returns True if the conversion succeeds, and False if the string S does not contain a valid GUID notation. The string S must be 38 characters long, must start with { and end on }, and contain a valid GUID string (hex number grouped using 8-4-4-4-12 digits).


In case S does not contain a valid GUID number, False is returned.
