 StrToIntDefFunction Convert a string into an Integer value with default SysUtils unit
 function StrToIntDef(const IntegerString string; Default Integer):Integer;
Description
The StrToIntDef function converts an Integer string, IntegerString such as '123' into an Integer value, with a Default if the conversion fails.

It supports +ve and -ve numbers, and hexadecimal numbers, as prefixed by \$ or 0x.
Notes
No conversion errors are generated - bad conversions simply result in the Default being returned.

Example code : Converting decimal and hexadecimal numbers

begin
A := 32;
B := StrToIntDef('100', 0);    // '100' string converted to 100 integer
C := StrToIntDef('  -12', 0);  // Leading blanks are ignored
E := StrToIntDef('-0x1E', 0);  // ... or with a '0x'
F := A + B + C + D + E;    // Lets add up all these integers

ShowMessage('A : '+IntToStr(A));

ShowMessage('D : '+IntToStr(D));
ShowMessage('E : '+IntToStr(E));
