Subject Re: [IBO] LookupCombo
Thanks Geof:
Yes I dont have BDE installed I do use all IB_Objects controls. It
is just getting my mind around various controls and their intended
way of operation I find difficult.
The ibojects dbcombo does not have a 'list source' so the queries
have to be linked as you indicate, but at this point the main table
holds a blank record apart from its primary key which is placed there
from a generator. The combo is connected to the lookup table and is
showing the list of town to select...what happens next ?
I am using delphi4 and ib_query and ib_datasource for both tables as
(When the user presses the 'check' button the data is transferred
from the lookup to the main record...but this is no different from
using non data-aware components).
