widestrings in dbexpress

Post by Bazza » Sun 13 Feb 2005 23:02

I'm trying to write widestrings to mysql database using latest driver under Delphi7. Using FieldByName('myfield).AsString corrupts the widestring (as expected, i end up with ?????????) and trying to set a field type of widestring (.Datatype := ftWideString) gives me a runtime error of "Data type not supported".

I am trying to save BIG5 encoded strings to mysql

Any help/assistance greatly appreciated.

dbExpress technology doesn't support WideString not depending on used driver.
