You should use the default TryStrToFloat() function from the sysutils unit.
It does exactly that, without exceptions.
The function result may change if the internationalization/localization
settings have changed. e.g. if you switch from platform.
Secondly, please note that in the debugger you will always 'see' the
exception before it is caught in the exception handler.
