: I am new to delphi programming and this course has helped me a lot. My question is about searching for datas in Access database (table). If I write the search code how do I see the searched elements ? Should I create a butom and a new form where the user will input the seach choice and then press the button ? And will delphi create a form automatically to display the results or should I create the display form in addition?
The user must be able to input what he is searching for, so you need at least one edit-component for this purpose,
plus a button to start the search. It doesn't matter on which form you put these components.
If you already have a form with a grid that shows the database contents, you can add them there.
Or use a button that opens a new form with the edit-box(es) and "start searching"-button.
