Have you read up the help on TIB_memo? The AutoDisplay property will
probably be of interest. To quote:

This property determines whether the contents of the memo should be
automatically loaded from the server.
Applies to TIB_Memo
Declaration property AutoDisplay;
If this is set to False, the memo contents will be displayed on demand,
when the user double-clicks on the control or presses the ENTER key when it
has the focus.
