maybe i understand your q not correct,

but just supply the properties

-databasename
-datafiled
-lookupdataset (or similar name)
-keyfield
-lookupresultfield

with proper values

let me explain .My situation is that
i have a view and insert in the same form.
1)during view menu click  of a particular record i just want to show the look up corresponding to that record.
2)but during the insert mode i should be able to show the entire look up records.
the second part i am able to do with a TDBlookupcombobox.
but that TDBLookupCombobox Shows the entire records in the view of a particular record also which i don't want .
hope u understand .
i don't want to disable the TDBlookupcombox can change it view style to cssimple as in TDBcombobox.with some code.
with warm regards

HI,
I still don't understand you exactly, so I try to ask you:
1.When you SHOW (or view as you said) the Field Value, (and maybe EDIT)
you use TDBLookupComboBox.
2.When you INSERT a new record you want to give the user to choose from another list of values.
If so, simply change the corresponding LookupDataSet
(and maybe KeyField, ResultField).
Sincerely,
Nestorua.

Hi nestorua
in My view mode i don't want the user to see the entire lookup  options but only the corresponding record .but in the edit/insert mode i want the user to be able to see the entire look up options.
presently i am trying it loading the entire options to a TDBCombobox in the insert/Edit mode
while in view mode i make the style of TDBCombobox =csSimple
