Q1) I have got a postcode edit box. I want to have a validation so that there is sort of like a real time mask. Like, I want it so that the user enters in LLN NLL

Where L = Letter and N = Number

in real time. Ie, not possible to enter Number as the first figure. Although if I cant do real time, I guess I can have a check afterwards which checks for number and letter.

Q2) How do you make a combobox read only? Ie, you cant type into it, and can only choose from it. There isn't a 'readonly' property.

You could use the onkeypress event to analyze what the user is trying to type.

You could also use a TMaskEdit.
