RAD Studio VCL Reference
TEdit Class

TEdit is a wrapper for a Windows single-line edit control.

TEdit = class(TCustomEdit);
class TEdit : public TCustomEdit;

Use a TEdit object to put a standard Windows edit control on a form. Edit controls are used to retrieve text that users type. Edit controls can also display text to the user.  

When only displaying text to the user, choose an edit control to allow users to select text and copy it to the Clipboard. Choose a label object if the selection capabilities of an edit control are not needed. 

TEdit implements the generic behavior introduced in TCustomEdit. TEdit publishes many of the properties inherited from TCustomEdit, but does not introduce any new behavior. For specialized edit controls, use other descendant classes of TCustomEdit or derive from it.
