ADOQuery.Open
if (ADOQuery.IsEmpty) then
  ShowMessage('no records returned')

works the same for TQuery

mmm... the quick and dirty way:

procedure ShowMessageWithTitle(const Msg, Title:string); //use this procedure, provide message and title
var
  s:string;
begin
  s:=Application.Title; //save the original title
  Application.Title:=Title; //put the title you want in your message box
  ShowMessage(Msg);
  Application.Title:=s //restore original title
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessageWithTitle('a big long message', 'with title')
end;
