Hi rayofunreal,

you can do it at runtime!
use a tquery-component!

There's no consistent way to determine the number of system objects in all available DBMS. This is the reason why you cannot retrive them with the BDE. At least for Interbase you can do it so:

procedure ListItemNames(ItemType: TItemType; Info: PConnectionInfo; List: TStrings; SysInclude: Boolean);

begin
  if AquireConnectionSet(Info) then
    with Info.Connection do
    begin
      with TIB_Cursor.Create(nil) do
      try
        IB_Connection:=Info.Connection;
        case ItemType of
          itDomain     : SQL.Add('select rdb$field_name from rdb$fields');
          itException  : SQL.Add('select rdb$exception_name from rdb$exceptions');
          itFilter     : SQL.Add('select rdb$function_name from rdb$filters');
          itGenerator  : SQL.Add('select rdb$generator_name from rdb$generators');
          itStoredProc : SQL.Add('select rdb$procedure_name from rdb$procedures');
          itTable      : SQL.Add('select rdb$relation_name from rdb$relations');
          itTrigger    : SQL.Add('select rdb$trigger_name from rdb$triggers');
          itUDF        : SQL.Add('select rdb$function_name from rdb$functions');
          itView       : SQL.Add('select rdb$relation_name from rdb$relations');
        end;
        if not SysInclude then SQL.Add('where ((RDB$SYSTEM_FLAG <> 1) or (RDB$SYSTEM_FLAG IS NULL))');
        if ItemType = itView then SQL.Add('and (rdb$view_source is not null)');
        SQL.Add('order by 1');
        Prepare;
        First;
        while not EOF do
        begin
          List.Add(Trim(Fields[0].AsString));
          Next;
        end;
      finally
        Free;
      end;
    end;
end;

I used IB Objects for this code but you can very easy adapt it to your needs. Info.Connection/IB_Connection can be replaced by a TDatabase component and TIB_Cursor by a TQuery component.

Ciao, Mike

Usually all info about a databases structure is stored in system tables (that's what they are for). Of course these tables aren't the same in all DBMS, so you have to find the way to retrieve the information you need for each database system separately.
