How To Hide TDBNavigator Buttons

jsmitter used Ask the Experts™
My application can run two ways. The first way is with full dB editing. The second way is read only with no dB editing. This mode of operation is determined by a passed parameter appended to the application exe file.

I need a way to make visible only the read type buttons on the TDBNavigator within my proceedure. I've been unsuccessful in applying the "visibleButtons" property. I can't figure out the proper syntax.

Thank you for your suggestions.

It worked. My problem was that in the help file, they don't show the semicolon in front of the equal sign. I shoulda known. Thanks
