Place the Item name as the caption of each button, then assign this OnClick event to each button.


procedure TForm1.ItemButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
 Table1.Open;
 Table1.Locate(TButton(Sender).Caption, [Item],[]);
 ShowMessage(Table1.FieldByName('Description').asString;
 Table1.Close;
end;

onto  TfrmMain.Image2Click

how could i make that happen

thank you
OK, you have 5 buttons  generated during runtime from an Acces database onto the Main panel.

When you press one of the buttons created it will output Item name and it's item description.

Is that what you want?


Is the caption of the button the item name (taken from database)?

Please post the code where you create the buttons.

ARe you creating a POS system.

Why dont you zip up your code & access database and send it to me and i will take a better look.
