  • 1. pdf to string to db
    Hi: I'm trying to take a pdf file, send it as a string (as part of a HTTPS packet)to my server, and store it in a DB on the server, then read it from the db as a pdf. I'm using BlockRead to create the string - But what I have on the server doesn't seem to be in correct pdf form. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
  • 2. Getting Database Path Information
    In Delphi how can I get the file path of a database. I can see that there is a procedure DBIAddAlias that can set a path, but, there does not seem to be an equivalent that reads it. The user sites, by the way, will use BDE Admin to maintain the database. I just want to know the path as ASCII files will also reside in the database directory. -- Regards, Richard Beilby.
  • 3. Filter exception when app closes
    Hi everyone Delphi 5, BDE Paradox, TTables, TQuery's etc. There are lots of posts regarding the "Field 'X' not found" exception, but I am getting this only when my app closes and do not use persistent fields(*). The exception is triggered in a filter that works fine while the app is running. I tried displaying the DataSet.FieldList.Text in the exception and it's empty!! It is not empty while the app is running. As a workaround, I can bracket the filter in a docile exception block, but I'd rather know what is going on! I'd be grateful for ideas. (*) I do dynamically set the DisplayFormat of one field -- I cannot figure out from the forum/help if this then requires me to make all the fields persistent (if so, why then is my app working all the way until close?) Thanks. Julian Brewer
  • 4. Master source
    I have two dbEdit box on the form. I have 2 tables: Table1 has strucure: EmployeeID, Name Table2: EmployeeID, descriptions I have datasources dsTable1 for tbTable1 and dsTable2 for tbTable2. First dbEdit box field is the tbTable1.EmployeeID Second dbEdit box field is tbTalbe2.description. I have set the master source property of second dbEdit box to the tbTable1.EmployeeID. Sample data: Table1 EmployeeID Name 1 John 2 Peter 3 Mary 4 May Table2 EmployeeID Description 1 Boy15 2 Boy20 3 Lady30 4 Girl20 This may seem ridiculous but this is the way and this is not the actural data. I have no problem in navigating the EmployeeID and description. The problem I got is I want to EDIT the EmployeeID in the first dbEdit box, when I change the value that does not exists and post it, the second dbEdit box will be blank. I know the reason because of the master source property. How do I get around it to retain the value of the description even the EmployeeID I entered does not exist?
  • 5. How to create a custom TDataset?
    While I am doing my own search, I put forth the following question for you gentle experts to muse over: "Where can one find a good example of creating a custom descendant of TDataset? Or is it easier to start from one of the already programmed descendants?"

I had no idea it was a common problem, but I'm certainly glad to hear that
it is.

May I bother you to instruct me as to how one goes about searching the
newsgroup archives?

This is a known problem, and has been discussed much in threads in this
forum, in borland.public.bde, and in other forums.  Search the newsgroup
archives for "insufficient disk space" or "4G limit" and you'll find
plenty.  There are also suggested work-arounds, and I think one is
a download available from Code Central.

Thank you Bill and Rick.

I found this on "Rick's dBase page" (
has anyone used this fix and care to comment?

BDE "Insufficient disk space" Error Fix
The BDE in all releases earlier than (the version that ships with
dBASE Plus 2.5 and later) and later releases one assumes, has an error that
can occur if you or your users have free disk space on the hard drive that
is an exact increment of 4 gigabytes (i.e., 4, 8, 12, 16 ...). The file includes the .DLL file that solves this issue (it's a "patch"
for the BDE), and also a small program that will load it. Details are in the
file "BDEFix.prg" contained in the .zip file. Note that if you have dBASE
Plus 2.5 or later, this should not be an issue, and you do not need this

I ran into the problem on occasion and just copied some file to the drive to
change the size of the free disk space.  It happened so infrequently, that
the biggest issue I had was to remember what to do when it happened..
