I use Lazarus 1.6 on Windows 7.
I've used lazdatadesktop to change the Displaylabel of the DB fields. In a DBGrid that new names 
popup as the column names. But in a form with TDBEdit fields I can't use a TDBLabel that 
automatically takes the name from the associated Control as the caption. Instead, I placed TLabel 
components and made the following method:

procedure TMyForm.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
   l: TLabel;
   for TComponent(l) in Self do
     if (l is TLabel) and (l.FocusControl is TDBEdit) then
       l.Caption := TDBEdit(l.FocusControl).Field.DisplayLabel;
     if (l is TLabel) and (l.FocusControl is TDBLookupComboBox) then
       l.Caption := TDBLookupComboBox(l.FocusControl).Field.DisplayLabel;

It works. But still I wonder, is there a another way? I've tried TDBText but that shows th field 
value, not the DisplayLabel.
