Question:
How can I show the tables in an Interbase database in listview or filelist? (like the database explorer)

Answer:
The only way to do that is as follows:1) Create an alias that points to the Interbase database.2) In your program you’ll want to use the TSession method GetTableNames (you can look that up in the online help). Hint: the last parameter is a TStrings type, so you can pass an Items property of a listbox into it.Here’s an example of how to use the call:

Session.GetTableNames('MyIBDatabase', '', False, True, Listbox1.Items);

This was taken directly from a program that I wrote that lists tables from a SQL Server database, but it’ll work for any Server based database.
