Delphi Error – E2538 DEFAULT standard function not allowed for this type

Delphi Compiler Error

E2538 DEFAULT standard function not allowed for this type

Reason for the Error & Solution

This occurs when you give the Default function a type that is not compatible as a parameter.

program E2538;

{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}

uses
  SysUtils;

begin
  Default(Text); //E2538
  Default(File); //E2538
end.
