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

works the same for TQuery

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

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;
