Subject [IBO] Grid or list selection with only one column
Author Antti Kurenniemi

This is probably very simple, I just can't figure it out myself: I want to
have a list of names in a list, and all detail edits on the same window
linked to the list so that when the user clicks on the list the edits would
be filled in. Real easy to do with all columns, with a Query component and a
Datasource component, except that if the query has many columns (or a very
simple "select * from...), the list will show all columns as well.

I've tried it with IB_Grid, IB_Listbox and IB_Lookuplist, but can't figure
out how to force just the columns I want to be shown. Or, do I need to have
separate queries or datasources, or something? I can hack it by making one
query to fill the list, and then a second query to fill all the edits when
the selection in the list changes, but somehow I feel that there is probably
an easier way...

Oh, and btw: I couldn't get anything to display in the IB_Listbox, by just
filling in the Datasource and DataField properties. Is there something else
I need to do with it?

Any information appreciated,
