i have a problem developing this function, i have this text..

Testing Function
ok
US.Cool
rwgehtrhjyw54 US_Cool
fhknehq is ryhetjuy6u24
gflekhtrhissfhejyw54i

my function :

function TForm5.FindWordInString(sWordToFind, sTheString : String): Integer;
var
i : Integer; x:String;
begin
 Result := 0;
 for i:= 1 to Length(sTheString) do
   begin
    x := Copy(sTheString,i,Length(sWordToFind));
    if X = sWordToFind then
      begin
        if X.Length > sWordToFind.Length then
         begin
          Result := 100;
          break;
         end else

         begin
          Result := i;
          break;
         end;
       end;
   end;
end;

now, i want X to be US.Cool, but here its always = US, because i want to check the length of sWordToFind and X.

After clarification, this question is about getting length of a word searched by its starting substring within a string. For example when having string like this:

fhknehq is ryhetjuy6u24

When you execute a desired function for the above string with the following substrings, you should get results like:

hknehq → 0 → substring is not at the beginning of a word
fhknehq → 7 → length of the word because substring is at the beginning of a word
yhetjuy6u24 → 0 → substring is not at the beginning of a word
ryhetjuy6u24 → 12 → length of the word because substring is at the beginning of a word

If that is so, I would do this:

function GetFoundWordLength(const Text, Word: string): Integer;
const
  Separators: TSysCharSet = [' '];
var
  RetPos: PChar;
begin
  Result := 0;
  { get the pointer to the char where the Word was found in Text }
  RetPos := StrPos(PChar(Text), PChar(Word));
  { if the Word was found in Text, and it was at the beginning of Text, or the preceding
    char is a defined word separator, we're at the beginning of the word; so let's count
    this word's length by iterating chars till the end of Text or until we reach defined
    separator }
  if Assigned(RetPos) and ((RetPos = PChar(Text)) or CharInSet((RetPos - 1)^, Separators)) then
    while not CharInSet(RetPos^, [#0] + Separators) do
    begin
      Inc(Result);
      Inc(RetPos);
    end;
end;

I spend a few times on your idea, so i wrote below codes, but it is not a good way for develop a Start With search. with some research you can find builtin functions, that provide better performance. you can try StrUtils.SearchBuf Function it will provide a full function string search.

anyway this code are working with SPACE separator, I hope it will be useful for you:

function TForm5.FindWordInString(sWordToFind, sTheString : String): Integer;
var
i : Integer; x:String;
flag : Boolean;
begin
 Result := 0;
 i := 1;
 flag := False;
 while True do
   begin
   if i > Length(sTheString) then  Break;

   if not flag then
       x := Copy(sTheString,i,Length(sWordToFind))
   else
   begin

       if sTheString[i] = ' ' then Break;
       x := x + sTheString[i];
   end;

    if (X = sWordToFind)  then
      begin
        flag := True;
        if (X.Length >= sWordToFind.Length) and
           (sTheString[i + Length(sWordToFind)]  = ' ') then
          break
        else
          i := i +  Length(sWordToFind) -1;

       end;


     i := i + 1;
   end;
   Result :=  Length(x);
end;
