The event was divid...

In fact, here's a (condensed) code snippet from this app: Proxy := CreateProxy; DS := Proxy.GetRegistrations(Session); FreeProxy(Proxy); while not DS.EOF do begin Memo1.Lines.Add(DS.FieldByName('TITLE').AsString+' '+DS.FieldByName('REGISTRATIONS').AsString); DS.Next; end; O...
