Basically double click a TSQLConnection at design time I recieve a dbExpress connections dialog permitting me to choose connections or create brand new ones.

Can there be anyway to make use of that connections dialog at run time ? I would like to present it to my customers to allow them to choose an association.

That specific dialog looks more helpful in my experience than PromptDataSource.

Cheers

Not a way. This editor is situated in DBConnEd unit, that is linked into dcldbXxx.bpl. Which package is Delphi design-time package. So, you can't utilize it at run-time. Also, this editor isn't available in D2009 and D2010.
