Subject Re: [IBO] TIBOQuery Keylinks but no Keysource
Author Jason Wharton
TIBOQuery has a DataSource property just like TQuery does. KeyLinks property
has nothing to do with setting up a master-detail relationship between two
datasets. TIBOTable component has a MasterSource property just like TTable

As far as I know, I already have it working just as the BDE components did.
You are just mixing in extra capabilities that are in the native datasets
but not in the TDataset based ones. I agree it would be nice if I made
special mention of things in the help file were information pertains to
TDataset or TIB_Dataset.
