When editing a DBGrid and entering a duplicate value into a unique key field a 'Key Violation' error occurs. Is there anyway of trapping this error to provide a more user friendly message?

You could trap the error by means of OnPostError table event. There you can chose what to do and the database error you got.

Hope this helps.

..or handle the EKeyViolation exception directly :

 try
   TheTable.post;
 except
   MessageDlg('This key already exists!',mtWarning,[mbOk,0);
   TheTable.cancel; // remove the record
 end;
