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.)
