TODDBComboBox and TODFieldComboBox are data aware combo boxes that act like Delphi's TDBLookupComboBox, but do not attempt to change the value in the current field on a user selecting a value. This makes them usefull for when the user selection is not supposed to be an editing action.
TODDBComboBox populates its dropdown list with unique values for the field specified in its DataField property from the dataset specified in its DataSource property. This list is refreshed when the dataset is opened, posted or deleted from.
TODFieldComboBox populates its dropdown list by executing an embedded query built from the DatabaseName, TableName and FieldName properties.
