First off I'm using C++ builder 3... similar to Delphi ... so any delphi code will help me ...I'd post my question in C++ section, but since it's a VCL thing, you guys are probably my best source.

I want to add a DriveComboBox to a form at run time.

After declaring a pointer variable to the object, and creating the object... I can access it's properties, but I can't see it on my form.... Is there a way to do this??

my code in C++ is

TDriveComboBox *Dr1;

Dr1 = new TDriveComboBox(Form1);

....
now properties can be accessed...
but DriveComboBox is NOT visible on the form

You should do this just after creating your control:
Dr1.parent:=Form1;

Dr1->Parent = Form1;
to be exact...

Perfect, thanks.

By the way, do I have to free the memory that I allocated for this object, or will the form automatically do the clean up for me when I close it.

Owner (which you give as an argument to constructor call) will always destroy
component object.
