Problem - how to avoid adding records to a DBGrid?

Postby Paul Linehan » Mon, 07 Jul 2003 02:36:12 GMT


Hi all,


Small problemo... 

I have a DBGrid -> DataSource - IBQuery/IBUpdateSQL and I want users to 
be able to *_change_* a certain number of configuration parameters 
stored in a database.


This is fine and works a treat - *_BUT_* what I don't want them to be 
able to do is add new records to the DBGrid, but when I do DownArrow at 
the bottom, it gives an error message "Cannot insert into database (No 
Insert Query)" - and this is because I deleted the insert SQL generated 
by the IBUpdateSQL because I didn't want any inserts.

Also, when I do Cntrl-Del, it asks me if I want to cancel - I just want 
the app to do nothing if I try and delete also.


How do I allow people to edit the values already in the DBGrid but not 
let them add (or delete) any records.


TIA.

Paul...

I did actually look up the help before posting and couldn't c SysUtils - 
what do I need to include in the header?

I tried a basic app - 1 form, 1 button

void __fastcall TForm1::Button1Click(TObject *Sender)
{

  SysUtils::Abort();

}

get compiler message 

[C++ Error] Unit1.cpp(21): E2090 Qualifier 'SysUtils' is not a class or 
namespace name
[C++ Error] Unit1.cpp(21): E2379 Statement missing ;


tried saving and building app - same ting,

1.How to display a dbgrid only for adding new records

I don't want to display old ones when the form is displayed.
Any ideas;;


2.Unwanted Sorting in DbGrid - after record add

I am new here so pardon me if this issue arised before. 
Scenario: using dbgrid to amend the table content. over multi-tier environment. using clientdataset.

Problem: after adding a record in the dbGrid, data is automatically sorted (believe on sorted by the first field in the grid). 

Question: how do I stop the sorting and wish to control myself on the display after record add. 

Appreciate any input. Cheers


3.Record ordering [Was: Problems wilth filtering records and/or GotoNearest]

Using Delphi 2006, MySQL 5 and Corelab DBExpress drivers.

I have been experimenting with my sorting order problem this weekend. The
only way I can get a correct order is to use TSQLQuery together with a
TDataSetProvider, with option RetainServerOrder, and a ClientDataSet.

But as soon as Delphi tries to interfere with the data (one way or the
other), things get messed up.

For example: I need to use GotoNearest. This means I need to set an index on
my ClientDataSet.

As soon as I add an index, as a result Delphi orders on the clientside (is
this assumption correct ?) and this ordering messes up the sortorder.

Right sort order:

B-9999
B-99999
B89999
B99999

Sort order when specifying index:

B89999
B-9999
B99999
B-99999

It looks like the "-" is being ignored. Because that would lead to:

B89999
B9999
B99999
B99999

And that is once again correct.

So what could cause Delphi to ignore (?) the "-" sign ?


4.Problem: master records + repeating detail records using Rave?

I have a tricky problem, but perhaps somebody can point me to a simple
solution.

I have two tables. The first contains a variable number of records,
and the other contains just three. All are created at runtime.

I need to print the first record held in Table A, followed by the 3
records from Table B, then the second record from Table A, and again
the 3 records from Table B, then the third record in Table A, and
again the 3 records in Table B -- until all Table A records have been,
as below:

A Brown, Allman Brothers    23030.29 41 18
G Arthurs, Powell Company   48010.00 22 13

etc.

The above is a trivial programming problem. What makes it tricky is to
accomplish it using Rave Reports. This is part of a larger project for
users who are familiar with the Rave interface.

Thanks in advance.
