Ok heres the deal:
Im pulling one field from a table using a SQL component, of course i get a number of records (just a few, about 10).

My problem is that i want those records to be in a dbcombobox. I can get the first record of the query to display fine, but when i pull it down... nothing where are the other records?

How do i take the results of a query and place them in the items property of the combobox?????

How about this:

Query.First
for n := 0 to Query.RecordCount -1 do
begin
 dbComboBox.Items.Add ( Query.FieldByName ( 'xxx' ).AsString;
 Query.Next;
end;

xxx = The Name of the Field of which you want to display the Records.

You don't really need a dbComboBox for this. A normal ComboBox is good enough.

Thanks Oli2.
 It worked like a champ using either a normal or db combobox.

 I dont suppose you could tell me what the point of a dbcombobox is (appearantly its not for what i thought it was).

hey, joesmith69,
well, I guess the point of a dbcombobox is... errrrr...hmmmm.
Seriously : A DBComponent has a straight connection to the Database.
At some Components this looks very meaningful to me.
At some others (DBComboBox f.E.) I don't really get the clue either.

Greetings, Oli
