"m using local database (paradox) and TDBedit etc ...

    i would like to know while the user enter data to thos controlers ...
    when does really the data stored in the disk ?
-> When the post method of the dataset is called.
    what should i do to make sure the data enter ?
-> mydataset.post ( mydataset being the dataset attached to the controls ). Usually this is done in the onclick method of a "save" button
    how can i inforce the program to store thos data ?
-> If the user closes the window or exits in any other way, you can do :
         if mydataset.state in [dsInsert,dsEdit] then
             begin
           if application.MessageBox('You have an unsaved update. Do you want to save it? ',
             'Update confirmation',
             MB_ICONQUESTION or MB_YESNO ) = ID_YES then
                 mydataset.post
           else
                mydataset.cancel
           end

    if the user already enter data ... and he want to make "Cancel" -restore the previous dara (like it was b4 he type ) , how can i do it ?
->  See above : by calling mydataset.cancel
