: i place the following components on a form:
: a listbox
: a DirectoryOutline
: a label
: in the listbox i place 3 letters, one on each line: A, C and D
: i then write an OnClick handler for the ListBox to associate the selected letter from the listbox with the DirectoryOutline.Drive property, and an OnChange handler for the DirectoryOutline to update the label.caption with the currently selected directory.
: However, the label caption does not get updated, although i can successfully select any drive from my listbox.

Maybe you made a small mistake somewhere, so maybe compare your code with my code, that has been tested 5 minutes ago:

procedure TForm1.ListBox1Click(Sender: TObject);
  DirectoryOutline1.Drive :=
 procedure TForm1.DirectoryOutline1Change(Sender: TObject);
   Label1.Caption := DirectoryOutline1.Directory;
