MyComponents: Quick Tip 1: Flying Datasets

Due to popular demand, are we reposting our flying dataset MyComponents Quick Tip from almost a year back.

Many times in development, do you find yourself just quickly looking for a dataset containing something from the database. Usually will such a dataset not be connected to visual controls. TMySQLServer is capable of creating, maintaining and destroying just such dynamic "in-memory" datasets. These datasets closely resemble ADO or ASP style coding and each dataset is referenced by a userdefined name. You can even connect such datasets up master-detail. The aim is of course to minimize the number of lines you have to write and your effort in general. Here are a couple of examples:

Example 1 (Usage):

with TMySQLDataset(MySQLServer1.Dataset) do begin
ShareConnection := False;
TableName := 'accounts'; …

MyComponents: MySQL ClientLibrary 4.1.10 released

SciBit now also maintains our own libmysql.dll which supports both old and new authentication and is only 157KB in size. So if you absolutely have to use a dll (instead of the Direct driver), then you can download it from MyComponents

Unlike MySQL's newest clientlibraries, which are 1-2MB in size and is usually not versioned, does the SciBit library contain full version info, is small and works 100% with the MyComponents. NOTE: It only implements the API needed by the MyComponents, which is minimilistic, so don't go replace all your other apps' libmysql.dll with it!

It is also free, and contains 0% MySQL source code (it is written 100% in native Delphi) and therefore does not carry any licensing issues for your commercial applications.

Regards, Support

MyComponents: Quick Tip 7: How do I get any file contents into a blob?

This question pops up often, but the solution is not specific to MyComponents, and will work in and with any Borland dataset component (in fact, this is how you are suppose to do it in Delphi/Kylix):


the following of course also works:

or you can also use the LoadFromStream and SaveToStream methods.

NOTE: If you post blobs to a table in MySQL you should keep a couple of things in mind:
1. The blob value is sent to the MySQL using a standard SQL statement. For this purpose, the value is hexed by the dataset and thus 2 SQL characters=1 blob byte.
2. Most MySQL servers' "max_allowed_packet" variable is set to a default value of less than 1Mb and a single sql statement must fit within one packet and thus within …
