Hi palabros,


use OnSetEditText event to check typed by user data.

HI,
You can use TDateTimePicker to give the user to choose the date instead of entering it.

hi nestorua
Can i use a datetimepicker in a grid .again as my datetime is keyfield i am having some trouble with findkey.
can anybody tell me how can we pass datetime field to findkey so as to check for duplication.
i am facing a problem such that 04/10/92 and 10/04/92 are
seems to be fetching the same results.
in which way am i supposed to proceed.

hi lee nover
thanks for the code but this code i have to use i before post events and i am having hell of trouble with handling
events as i really find it difficult to study the sequence of its occurence.
thanks
jon

HI,
TDateTimePicker will be appear ONLY when you try to edit that
Field of type TDateTime.
So it will not effect (impact) on your searching.
As for 04/10/92 and 10/04/92: if those values are in the Field of type TDateTime then they are different (April and October).
So, to my mind you should not consider them as the same.
Sincerely,
Nestorua.
