I am trying to have a message dialog query input box with a list of items to pick from, the follow code allows only one line to be displayed, cannot find out how to have a list.

begin
  dbisamtable1.CheckBrowseMode;//post all
  InputString := 'LIST'+#13#10+'PROSPECT';
  ClickedOK := InputQuery('Insert Record Category Select','Enter Category',InputString);
   if ClickedOK then
    dbisamtable1.Insert;
    dbisamtable1category.value := InputString;
   end;

Thank you.

Cordially,

JAlexander

InputQuery doesn't support any lists, combos - just a caption and an edit. If you want to make a sophisticated dialog, you have to put all you want on a new form, and then ShowModal it. You should put some buttons and make them to be Cancel, OK, etc. Use the ModalResult property of the buttons for that.

You cannot use inputQuery to select a list of item. Try this:
1. Create a dialog box (a new form, let's call it dlgbox1)
2. Drop a listbox or combobox to the dlgbox1
3. Key in the possible values in the items property of listbox/combox
4. ADD THESE CODES IN YOUR MAIN FORM:
    dlgbox1.ShowModal;
    if dlgbox1.ModalResult = mrOK then
      { do whatever intended}

5. Alternatively, you may just create an onclick event for the OKbutton in dlgbox1 and do whatever you wish in the event hanlder
