(unique = just one field)

What I want to do is give the possibility to the user to change the DisplayFormat property.

I'm using TIBOQuery in a Quantum Grid.
The query was build in RunTime by the user.

I'm abble to get the current format reading TIBOQuery.InternalDataSet.Field[xx].DisplayFormat. And I'm abble to change it, but changing it just works after I close & reopen the query.

Imagine that this is a Date Field and I've defined FieldName=yyyy-mm-dd in FieldsDisplayFormat. I want my users to be abble to change it to 'dd-mm-yyyy' at run time, changing the way the data is displayed on the grid.

Can't you just change it on the TField by casting it to whatever type it
actually is?

What do you mean by unique?
