Question: Can you help me with a coding example showing how to program the handle of the database errors. Until now I always used "on E: EFIBError do ..." and do not know how I can program this in FIBPlus.

Answer: You can use both - standard exceptions (EDatabaseError) and specific FIBPlus exceptions. For example:

 on E: EFIBError do ...

FIBPlus exceptions are described in fib.pas:

EFIBError = class(EDatabaseError)
  FSQLCode: Long;
  FIBErrorCode: Long;
  FSQLMessage :string;
  FIBMessage :string;
  SenderObj :TObject;
    constructor Create(ASQLCode: Long; const aMsg: String;Sender:TObject);
    constructor CreateEx(ASQLCode: Long; const IBMsg,SQLMsg: String;Sender:TObject);
    property SQLCode : Long read FSQLCode ;
    property IBErrorCode: Long read FIBErrorCode ;
    property SQLMessage :string read FSQLMessage;
    property IBMessage :string read FIBMessage;
EFIBInterBaseError = class(EFIBError);
EFIBClientError = class(EFIBError);

For more details about this please read an article "FIBPlus: handling database errors"

Our 911 dispatch center needed a program to monitor the status of equipment used in emergency situations. If one dispatcher modified the status of a piece of equipment, all the other dispatchers needed to see this change immediately. The most elegant way to implement this was by using Firebird Events to asynchronously notify all the users whenever a pertinent change had occurred at the database server. After failing to implement this myself using the Firebird API, I bought a copy of FIBPlus. I dropped a Database, EventAlert and ErrorHandler control into a C++ Builder DataModule and within minutes I had all the functionality I needed. I was able to complete the project quickly and the users are thrilled with the results because I gave them more features than they originally asked for. >>
