Datasources

I am creating a component in D1 and I have to refer to either
a TTable or TQuery as the Datasource.  I have coded the following:

If (DataSource.Dataset as TTable) = ..... then
else
If (DataSource.Dataset as TQuery) = ....  then

I have to use that construct several times within the component
and I want to know if there is a simpler way to do it, like by
setting a variable for the (DataSource.Dataset as TTable) or TQuery
part. If so, what type of variable do I need?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi jdthedj,

What about this? Make a boolean function of it like :

function IsTable:Boolean;
begin
 if (DataSource.DataSet as TTable) then Result := true
  else Result := false;
end;

In your component, you can call this function :

 if IsTable then ...
  else ....

It's shorter and easier.

Have fun,
