TTable component has a property called IndexDefs which gives the details of all the indexes relating to an active table.
Try the following code and you will know what I mean:

 for i:= 0 to (Table1.IndexDefs.Count -1) do
    ShowMessage(Table1.IndexDefs.Items[i].Fields)

Apart from Fields property which give you the names of the index field, there are other info such as index name, expression etc. Please check the Delphi help for more details
