TDBReferencedCombo 1.00

TDBReferencedCombo is a VCL component for Delphi. It is a very simple data aware component, that looks like a "SQL driven DBLookupCombo"...

TDBReferencedCombo will save you the need of a specific datasource and table to fill its rows. To do this, it manages an internal query (called "referenced query").
Key properties
DataSource connection to the "main" table
DataField datafield in the main table
RefDatabase referenced query database
RefSQL referenced query SQL order
RefKeyField referenced query key field
RefViewField referenced query view field

For example, in a form with a datasource (dsCustomer) and a table (tbCustomer), the TDBReferencedCombo properties may be
DataSource dsCustomer
DataField CountryRef
RefDatabase a DatabaseName
RefKeyField Ref
RefViewField Name
...assumed that you work on the tables Customer = (Ref, Name, ..., CountryRef,...) and Country = (Ref, Name, OrderNum...).

Limited warranty
TDBReferencedCombo is provided "AS IS" without warranty of any kind.
It has been developed and fully tested with Paradox tables on Delphi 1. Yes, Delphi 1 in 1998 ! I know that the component may be useless in versions 2, 3 or 4. But it useful for ME !

Freeware and Registration
