Hi Allan

No we didn't use the same data source for the screens. Screens are fully independent, with their own datamodule and table components. Our app certainly used to pick up changes.

the only way for that to have been happening in the dbase/bde environment
was to have used the same datasource for both the invoice screen and the
invoice item edit screen. You can still do that if you wish - if you
haven't. If they are different datasources then refresh is the only way -
even in the old days.

IB Objects - direct, complete, custom connectivity to Firebird or InterBase
without the need for BDE, ODBC or any other layer.
