Subject Memo in grid
Author Aage Johansen
This should be a no-brainer, but I cannot get this to work now.
Using "oldish" IBO/4.2Id, Delphi/6.
The query is a join with 4 tables, and the UpdateSQLs have been filled in
the TIB_Query. A memo field was recently introduced in one of the tables,
and this is where myproblem is.
My problem: I cannot edit the memo _within_ the TIB_Grid. I can see
values, but the button with the ellipsis is not shown. Everything else
seems to work, the other fields are editable, and I can edit in the IDE
when I activate the query in the query-editor (but, alas, not in the grid
at run-time). I cannot see anything particularily weird with the
components' attributes (or my code...). One difference (between run-time
and IDE) is a PrepareSQL where I sometimes use a SQLWhereItems.Add (not now).

I placed a new TIB_Memo on the form and linked it through the same
TIB_DataSource and MemoField), and editing worked fine (and new values were
shown in the grid!).
This editing-in-the-grid works elsewhere in the program.

The EditSQL looks like this (EKSTRAMATERIALE is the MemoField):
update DISTRIB
set LAND = :LAND,
<other fields>
where ID = :ID
