hi,
i would use
procedure TForm1.DBLookupComboBox1KeyPress(Sender: TObject; var Key: Char);
begin
 Label1.Caption := DBLookupComboBox1.Text;
end;

as using the showmessage(key) will only show the last pressed key .

Hi Inthe,

The thing is Iamme, asked for a method to see the letters a user is typing. So I pointed to the keypress event. The showmessage was just a way to show that it intercepted the keypress of the user.

Iamme hasn't told what he wants to do with the event, therefor this stupid example.
