Question: When compiling my FIBPlus applications for Turbo Delphi (BDS 2006) I get an error: [Pascal Fatal Error] FIBMiscellaneous.pas(236): F2051 Unit FIBDataSet was compiled with a different version of StrUtil.FastUpperCase. What should I do to avoid it?
Answer: Please, rebuild the main FIBPlus package:
1. Open Delphi IDE
2. Go to "Component" - "Install Packages"
3. Select "FIBPlus" package and click "Edit" button.
4. The package FIBPlus2006.dpl will be open in the current project group. It should be active (bold).
5. Go to "Project" and select "Build FIBPlus2006" command.
That's all :). Now you can compile any FIBPlus applications. I do not know the reason of such strange behavior, because during automatic installation FIBPlus is compiled by the same compiler, which is used in IDE. Only Borland knows what's going on with that :)
During a re-write of a very large software system we were having some difficulties utilizing a 3rd party grid that we had chosen. The dataset connectivity was very flaky due to the complex joins and updates we were using which caused the grids to behave very sketchy. FIBPlus was the perfect solution for us. After implementing it everything became so much easier. The grid functionality stabilized, data retrieval was much faster, and we were pleasantly surprised by many of the unique features of your components. We were especially impressed with your pFIBUpdateObject components which allowed us to very easily update the multiple tables we were using in our joins. Many thanks for your great components.>>
