Hook keyboard keypress event, increase a counter everytime a key is pressed, I think that would do the trick

Thanks

ok - add an OnChange event - and make both text boxes point to this event handler

const
stSOURCE :string = "everyone delphi fans";

Procedure Text1OnChange(sender)
var inStart, inEnd :integer;
stOutput:string;
begin
inStart:= StrToInt(text1.text);
inEnd:= StrToInt(text2.text);
//should check values here....ie must be numbers, etc
stOutput:=copy(stSource, inStart,inEnd);
//put output somewhere
label1.caption:=stOutput;
end;
