Returns the value of a component property that is of UnicodeString type.

GetUnicodeStrProp utilises Object Pascal's RTTI (Run Time Type Information) to return the current value of a component's property where that property is a UnicodeString. An empty string is returned if the property is not of this type.

In one form of this function, the property is looked up by using the data in the PropInfo parameter. GetPropInfo and GetPropList can be used to obtain such a record.

In the other form of this function, the name of the property, PropName, is explicitly given.

In both forms of the function, the current value of the property is returned as a string.

The intrinsic value of this function is to allow retrieval of component properties without the need to hard code the property name. This allows mass visual component processing at run time.

Use GetPropValue to retrieve a property value where the type is unknown - it is returned in a Variant type.

Note: If the specified property does not exist, or is not a published property, an EPropertyError exception is thrown.
