We're just starting out. Trying to write our Pocket PC version of a program which we have currently running like a dream on Palm.

Problem: filling combo boxes with data from a Pocket Access table... the .AddItem function is taking too long. Any ideas/workarounds. or ... Are there database aware components out there? Like a LookupCombo component.
Our testing shows that reading data from the Pocket Access tables isn't the time problem. So it seems to be isolated the Fill (.AddItem) function.

Are you using eVB OR eVC++?
Or would you be willing to go third party?

Or Winodws sql 2000 for ce?
This is the fastest way. Totally relational!
 A pain , but worth it.

Thanks for the response..

We have sorted the problem out here actually...

The answer was to hide the Combo Drop Down List component while running the AddItem Loop then make it visible again when filled.


Thanks for the SQL 2000 tip ...!!
