Hi,

Want to make a lookup field that depends where the possible values depends on another fields's value.
I set the lookupdatasets filter property and set the filtered property to true as well. Even tried Refresh still nothing happened. Got the same list in the lookup field. How could i solve this problem?

I tried to use customconstraint too but didn't work.

for example one field is country and the other is town
if someone picks country he can pick a toen only from that country (only that the connection is much more complex : depends on other tables of the dataset)

thanx

To be more precise, I have a dependency table which is in fact a list of pairs of the elements of two other tables. Not foreign keys but strings still it defines the other tables elements . So when the users picks up one element of the first table i want to show him in my lookup list of the other table only those that are linked to it (has a pair of the two in the dependency table).
I simplificated it a little, but i guess if i got a solution for this, I can solve the problem.
What i did was:
When the first field changed i collected the linked objects from the dependency table and set the filter.

I use SQLDirect (changed a bit).
A query inherited from TSDQuery(inh from TQuery).

Sorry if i didn't answer your question. It doesn't use BDE.

Ok I found the solution. Closed the lookupdataset, set a new SQL for it and reopened. It worked.
Probably filtering has no effect on the lookuplist.
