Subject RE: [IBO] Login and Data Display
Author Jack Cane

I went back and perfected the forms with tib_ components as given in the
sample. I have nearly everything working as designed (but see more recent
e-mail on this list).

I then saved the form under a different name and began ripping things out,
and adding tiboDataBase and tiboQuery, while keeping the tib_DataSource,
nav/update bars, etc..

At design time I set all the tibo_queries' active properties to true, no
problem. Both data sources point to an existing .gdb. However, none of the
tib_DataSources sees any queries in its DataSet dropdown. What is missing?

Any ideas appreciated.

Well, yes I do...but that wasn't my message this time around. I'd failed
to notice that you had referred to TIBOTable, not TIBOQuery. However, the
same applies, re keeping everything within the TIBO* stream.

TIBOTable exists in the TDataset-compatible stream of components really
just for compatibility with existing BDE apps that people are
converting. In the process of converting say a Paradox app to Firebird or
InterBase one would get rid of table components PDQ. For an understanding
of why, pick up the TI sheet on Moving to Client/Server, from the TechInfo
