agree with zif, more info please

if you want a preselect just set the keyfieldvalue as required

Hi Iamme,

I think I know what you mean, try doing this after you've opened the query:

if DBLookupCombobox.KeyValue = Null then // Only fill when it is empty
  DBLookupCombobox.KeyValue := DBLookupCombobox.ListSource.Dataset.FieldByName(DBLookupCombobox.KeyField).AsInteger;

It think this should do it. Make sure the keyfield is of type integer!

It probably is...

Cheers mate

I've reread your question, you offcourse can also stick in a DBLookupCombobox.ListSource.DataSet.First before my little code snippet.

You should set the "listsource" and "listfield" properties to let the combobox show the lines from your query.

Also be sure that the "normal" settings are correct (datasource/datafield)

the data in the "keyfield" is used for the "lookup"
