you could check in the FormCreate (assuming Delphi) or the form constructor
(C++ Builder) and if the database file is not found, simply disable the DB
specific options etc.

Alternatively, check in the BeforeConnect event handler for the connection -
as demonstrated in the very first Sample program supplied with IBO.

Would like to know the best way to achieve this. One approach is to check if
the .gdb exists. Where is the best place to make the check?
