InterBase array datatype and the BDE

By: Borland Staff

Abstract: BDE does not support InterBase array's. You'll have to use the InterBase API instead.

Problem:
I have just created a table that contains a field with an array of integers 
defined as one of the fields.  How can I access it from my Delphi or C++ Builder application using the BDE?

Solution:
**********************************************
The information in this article applies to:
*InterBase versions 3.3, 4.X, and 5.X
*Delphi versions 1.X, 2.X, 3.X, and 4.0
**********************************************

Delphi and C++ Builder's data aware components do not support arrays. One has to use
InterBase API calls to get data into and out of the arrays. Thus you
must either write your own array handling code, or use a component set
which already does this.
