Hello folks,

Any of you imagine how can i show, in a DBGrid (or in other object) the:
1) Name of my database tables;
2) The fields of a selected table;
3) The fields properties of a selected table.

More clearly: first i need show the name of my tables (for example, table A, table B and table C).
After, if the user click in a TABLE NAME (for example, table A), the DBGrid shows that table fields and the properties of it field.

I will be very glad if anyone could solve this question.

Best Regards.

I know how to show in a DBGrid The fields and values of a table:
Just put into the DBGrid's property DataSource a DataSource name to the Table or Query which will connect to desired Table into database. After activation of the Table or Query, you will see fields and values of a table by DBGrid ....

Thx. for your comments,

Ok with the FIELDS, but i didn´t want to see the FIELD´s VALUES but the FIELD´s PROPERTIES (for example, VARCHAR, AUTOINC, etc.)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
