Duplicate rows in dbgrid

Hello all ...

How does one check if a row to be
added to a dbgrid - already exists - before adding it?

I am not posting any values to the database until I press a certain button ... so all the rows are not yet saved when I want to run this check.

Thanx,
Fats

You can check it directly in your table for example:

if Table1.Locate('Name', Edit1.Text, [loCaseInsensitive]) then
 ...// that means it is already exists

Wont this way always return false? There really are no records in the dataset yet ... which, by the way, is a tquery selecting from multiple tables and which has cachedupdates enabled.

procedure AddField( AField : TField );
for i:=0 to grid.Columns.Items-1 do begin
  grid.Columns.Items[i].FieldName = Afield.FieldName then begin
    //Skip add action
  end else begin
   //Add the field
  end;
end;

I have used a variation of your comment. It put me in the right direction.

Thank you Radler
