I have always seen Paul's behavior (edit button always enabled) and
thought that it was standard. Now you appear to say that it can be
made to go disabled (which would be more logical) by setting the
update bar ReceiveFocus and the data source AnnounceFocus properties
to true. I tried that and the edit button still remains enabled (and
the key links of the tib_query are set). Is there anything else you
can think of to make the edit button become disabled until the post
or cancel buttons are clicked? Thanks.
