There is no need to mix programmatic edit field creation and IB creation. Programmatic creation is dependent on the FB runtime event code and IB code is Carbon Event driven. I'm sure edit field is more comfortable, but mixing methods is tricky since they were not designed to co-exist. If you are using IB, I would recommend using CE methods to manipulate the data. Brian S.
