Forms expert...

Delphi 2 and 3 comes with a forms expert that creates a form with all columns on it, based on a database table.  This is nice, provided you're using the BDE, which I'm not.  I'm using a 3rd party BDE replacement.  The question is, does Delphi2/3 comes with the source code for the Forms expert?  Where do I start?  Is there a good sample to use?
Thanks

Hi gspears,

The source code is in:

.\Borland\Delphi 2.0\Demos\EXPERTS\EXPTDEMO.DPR

I don't know if it's only available in Clente/Server versions.

If you reallu want to go deep in this, I suggest you the book

The Hidden Paths of Delphi 3 by Ray Lischner

You can find it in www.informat.com

IHTH,
Itamar

Sorry but, what did you mean by

"...The question is, does Delphi2/3
   comes with the source code for the Forms expert?..."

In your question ?

I just meant that, you showed me where it was, and even though I don't have client/server, I was able to find the source.

I wasn't aware that it was there until you told me.

Thank you

Hi gspears
So, as you said that the question was "... does Delphi 2/3 comes with the source ?...",
can I place this as answer to be graded ?

Bye,
