If there is only one colum I think TListBox is sufficient, however if you seek for multiple columns you'd better use TListView. In each case I recoment you to conduct a HIDDEN grid, make the querry and transfer the grid column to the list.

Hey braso, hey Igor! You can also do this without a grid - just open a TQuery, and go through the records adding them wherever you want until TQuery.EOF.

You can use List box and read the Query record set in a loop until end of Query table :

ListBox1.Items.Clear;   // Result list
Query1.First;                // Your SQL query component

while not Query1.Eof do
 begin
   ListBox1.Items.Add(Query1.Fields[0].AsString); // First field
   Query1.Next;
 end;

// That's all.. very simple !!. Isn't it ?
