methods supporting new commands RDB$GET_CONTEXT and RDB$SET_CONTEXT
implemented in Firebird 2 have been added.
function GetContextVariable (ContextSpace: TFBContextSpace; const VarName: string): Variant;
procedure SetContextVariable (ContextSpace: TFBContextSpace; const VarName, VarValue: string);
Note: New features 4-6 enable developers to easily use their own settings in the field repository.
If you need to set the EditMask property, add the EDIT_MASK field to the repository table; create a container; make it global by setting the IsGlobal property to True; and write the following code in the OnApplyFieldRepository event handler:
procedure TForm1.DataSetsContainer1ApplyFieldRepository(DataSet: TDataSet; Field: TField; FieldInfo: TpFIBFieldInfo);
FIBPlus has taken the headache out of this project. When I got the current contract, FIBPlus was included on the work computer from the client. I quickly found it easier to use and more powerful than any other Firebird component suite I had tested. When I ran into a problem setting up a persistent calculated field, the tech support people saved the day. I would also add that I tested Zeos, IBX, DBGo, UIB, and other FBconnectors. FIBPlus outperformed all of them, and FIBPlus was run on an older machine than the others were. That was most impressive.>>
