How to Bind Mysql DateTime Field to TDateEdit or TTimeEdit

Hi all,

I have a database with a table that must contain a DateTime field and i need to manipulate that field with TDateEdit, TTimeEdit. When i bind both controls to the same field and if changed the date control the time gets reset to 12:00 AM automatically and it is very annoying because that will make the user every time to change the time to what it originally was. So i thought of TEdit to handle both Date and Time but again i need to prevent the user from entering a wrong input like invalid date or time.

So, has anyone managed to fix this issue? is it possible to display time along side date in TDateEdit and make the changes posted to the TDataSet? or am i should not consider Firemonkey in the first place?

Thanks in advance
