You can use the BeforeConnect event to set the relevant properties
(see below) at runtime.

This property is calculated from Protocol, Server, and Path
properties. It will get parsed into those properties if you make
changes to DatabaseName. Not sure why it doesn't like being empty, you
could look into its source code ;)

I'm setting the values for my development db in the object inspector
and at runtime in BeforeConnect I read the values (Protocol, Server,
and Path) from an ini file.
