Hi,
How can I do a databasename property editor for my component ? In D3 ;)
It's not a dataaware component.
I want the same editor the for any tdataset component.
I want to be able to choose the database name that I'm going to work on.

Thank for the helps..

Hi jeurk,

It must work for you like for me. If you need additional info let me know.


type
  TDatabaseNameProperty = class(TStringProperty)
  public
    function  GetAttributes: TPropertyAttributes; override;
    procedure GetValues(Proc: TGetStrProc); override;
  end;


// !!! Change it
// !!! TYourComponentClass
// !!! 'DatabaseName'
procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterPropertyEditor(TypeInfo(string), TYourComponentClass, 'DatabaseName', TDatabaseNameProperty);
end;

function TDatabaseNameProperty.GetAttributes: TPropertyAttributes;
begin
  Result := [paValueList, paSortList, paMultiSelect];
end;

procedure TDatabaseNameProperty.GetValues(Proc: TGetStrProc);
var
  I: Integer;
  Values: TStringList;
begin
  Values := TStringList.Create;
  try
    Session.GetDatabaseNames(Values);
    for I := 0 to Values.Count - 1 do Proc(Values[I]);
  finally
    Values.Free;
  end;
end;
