FireDAC TFDParam ancestors

FireDAC TFDParam ancestors

(OP)
Hi all,

Hopefully somebody out there has the FireDAC source code. It doesn't come with the Professional edition of Delphi, which make things incredibly frustrating, because the documentation for it ranges from barely adequate to missing depending on the component.

If you do have it, could you please respond with the class inheritance for it. I want to see what the common ancestor of TFDParam and TParameter is. There is zero documentation for it in the help files, or embarcadero's wiki that I could find.

Thanks in advance.

It occurred to me that I could test this with a AFDParam is TParameter statement. Won't compile, so that answers my question.

RE: FireDAC TFDParam ancestors

One good advice:

never use components without having the source code!
There are 2 main reasons why I maintain this rule of thumb:
- you can't fix bugs if there are any and you must rely on the component vendor for fixes
- you are locked to a specific Delphi version, upgrading can be made impossible if vendor decides to no longer continue development

in case of FireDAC (and FireMonkey in general), these are bug infested platforms, consider using a well proven component/technology.

Where were you a couple of months ago when I started with FireDAC? :)

I've been fighting blind trying to get FireDAC working, and as of yesterday I've decided to leave that fork and go back to ADO.

RE: FireDAC TFDParam ancestors

I must refine my last statement a bit.
It seems that Emba aquired AnyDAC component suite from DASoft and renamed it into FireDAC.
AnyDAC is/was a very good component suite for what it matters, but you must have the source code like I said.
Staying with ADO is certainly a very good choice, if you don't mind being locked to win platform only.
