TLargeintField not being used

TLargeintField not being used

Postby Wade » Sun 03 Jan 2010 21:35

Delphi 2009
FB 2.1
DBXIDA 2.50.20

BIGINT Fields are being represented as TFmtBCDField

How do I make DBXIDA create them as TLargeintField?

DbxIda does not use TLargeintField because there were problems with this field type in dbExpress (in older Delphi versions).

While I understand the historical issue, this is not a great reason to go forward without using TLargeIntField... Surely it is more efficient than TFmtBCDField.

For later versions of Delphi, why not have a DBXIDA parameter that tells it to use largeint fields rather than fmtbcd... That way the "better" field type can be used going forward while not breaking applicaions that are being ported from legacy delphi versions?

I like to suggest to add this feature to PostgreSQL driver, also.

Further to this, it needs to support "AsLargeInt" parameters as well as LargeInt fields, otherwise the 64bit integer support won't fully work.

It's been 4 weeks (2 weeks past the expected data for an update) - can you give an updated expectation for a new release with support for LargeInt fields and parameters?

It's another 2 weeks past the "new" expected date for an update - can you give an updated expectation for a new release with support for LargeInt fields and parameters?

Are you sure version 2.50.21 has support for LargeInt fields?

Your Readme.html makes no mention of it's availability or how to use it and refers ONLY OptimizedNumerics and EnableBCD. As best as I can see, the only change in Readme.html is the copyright date on the last line.

Please explain.
