I've been getting more and more irritated about this thing today, and I am close to throwing my keyboard out of the window. This, TdxDBGridLookupColumn of DevExpress's, I cannot by any means figure out how it's supposed to work.

I beg thee for a solution!

thats easy

just define a lookupfield in your primary dataset,
assign the TdxDBGridLookupColumn to this lookupfield

thats all

just ask, if you don't know how to add lookupfield
-dblclick on the dataset-object
-rightclick on the fields-editor->add all fields
-rightclick on the fields-editor->new field
-fill out the entire dialog

Cool!

Do you think you could explain what field goes where? I'm new to lookups. (you don't have to, I'm as happy without :)


Thanx!

well ok,

the dialog, where you define the lookupfield

Fieldproperties
- give a name, type and size(size only by stringtypes)

Fieldtype
- select lookup

Lookup Definition
-keyfield->select the name of the field, which should looked up, of your primary dataset
-dataset->select a dataset, where the data for the lookup come from
-lookupkey->lookupdataset field, which correspondens with your primary dataset keyfield
-Result Field->The field from the lookupdataset, which should displayed

hope its clear enough (ask if not),
thanks for the points :-)

good luck again

meikl ;-)
