Use AnsiString And UTF8String In Delphi XE5 Firemonkey On Android And IOS

Delphi XE5 Firemonkey Byte StringsEmbarcadero disabled access to byte stings in Delphi XE5 Firemonkey and if you’re a long time Delphi developer you may be missing them. They are also useful if you are bringing old code forward to use on mobile devices. Andreas Hausladen has a blog post with a solution for you. Apparently byte strings are still there in System.pas they are just renamed. Andreas provides a hex edited unit called System.ByteStrings.dcu which you can add to your project and uses clause providing you access to byte strings. The string types it enables are:

The unit has only been downloaded from his site a few hundred times so I know a lot of you don’t have it yet.

Update: There is now support for Delphi XE6 as well.

Head over and download the free bytes strings unit.
