Direct ORacle Access component - how to turn off prompt for login

Hi All,
this may be a basic question but I am stumpted at the moment? - I have a simple application that uses a session , logon and query components from DOA or TOracle. I enter all the user, password, and database details but I still get prompted for a login when it connects to the Oracle database, all I need to do is click OK so I know all these details are correct.

DOes anyone know how to turn this prompt off

thanks

Dave

there may two possible propertys (don't have these components)

loginPrompt [true/false] -> show loginDialog yes/no
keepConnection [true/false] -> keep the connection alive, even if it is not accessed for a longer delay

additional could be a design mismatch

make sure that all query-/table-tablecomponents
are assigned to one session-component and/or databasecomponent

Hi meikl - you have helped me with questions before! - hopefully you can get me sorted with this one
There isnt a property like you mentioned however if I follow oraclelogon.options there are the following options as show in the help file

Declaration

type TLogonOption = (ldAuto, ldDatabase, ldDatabaseList, ldLogonHistory);

type TLogonOptions = set of TLogonOption;

property Options: TLogonOptions;

Description

The logon options allow you to control the following behavior of the logon dialog:

w      ldAuto       Causes the execute procedure to log on without showing a dialog if both username and password are specified for the Session.
w      ldConnectAs       Displays a dropdown list that allows you to connect as SYSDBA or SYSOPER. The list will only be visible when using Net8.
w      ldDatabase       Allows the user to enter a database name in the logon dialog.
w      ldDatabaseList       Displays a combo box list with database names. These database names are extracted from the SQL*Net / Net8 administration file tnsnames.ora, and can programmatically be accessed through the OracleAliasList. The size of the list is controlled by the AliasDropDownCount property.

w      ldLogonHistory       Displays a dropdown list with previously entered logon information, so that an end-user can quickly connect to a database. This logon history is stored in the hkey_current_user registry or in an ini-file. This option can further be controlled by the HistoryRegSection, HistoryIniFile, HistorySize and HistoryWithPassword properties.


problem is I cant seem to set them - any ideas?

thanks

Hi Meikl,
I have figured it out - well actually another guy came back in the office and hes a bit better at Delphi than me, sometimes you miss the obvious
there was an option under the logon component under "options" - idauto set this to true and that was it.

thanks again for your assistance
