I don't know the dblookupcombobox too well but looking at the help what I'd do is this.

1. Use the OnClick event
2. Iterate through the items in the list using a FOR loop, looking for a match. When you get a match, you've got your index value

Not that I can see. That's why you'd have to do the search yourself. It's not a big job though - You know the text selected and I assume you can gain access to the list of items so you just use something like the following

iIndex := -1;
FOR iCount := 0 TO <No Items>
DO
  IF ComboBox1.Text = ComboBox1.Items[iCount]
  THEN
    iIndex := iCount;

You can't read itemIndex (x) and with that int check the items array? (items[x])?

Weekend!

For standard comboboxes,

  if( ComboBox1.ItemIndex > -1 ) then
    ShowMessage( ComboBox1.Items[ ComboBox1.ItemIndex ] ) ;

works...don't know about dbLookupComboBoxes...sorry...

I think what you are looking for is the KeyValue property of the DBLookUpComboBox. This gives you the value that is actually being written to the dataset field that the control is bound to as opposed to the value being displayed to the user. To know that the field has been changed by the user, the OnChange event of the dataset field can be handled.
