I read in IBO FAQs that there's a set of methods to iterate rows in a
dataset without disturbing the dataset's active record and the
data-bound fields. This can help me solve many problems, but there are
still some things that aren't clear.

1. I use TIBO* components - how can I access the Buffer* methods for a

2. It seems that it's possible to WRITE a value to a field in the
buffer without triggering any server update. Will data aware controls
"see" the new value?

3. If not, is there any other way to make the update pass through to
the dataset (so data aware controls will see it), but still without
triggering a server update?

4. If I obtain a bookmark through the standard dataset property, and
use that bookmark with BufferBookmark - will this make the same record
active in both the dataset and the buffer?
