Wide(*)Fields for Unicode

Post by durumdara » Wed 13 Apr 2016 13:26

Dear Support!

As we experienced you change field types in Unicode mode.

As I think in the new version of Delphis the TStringField can handle unicode values.
So may you don't need to change the field types (only in Char = AnsiChar versions).

Maybe it based on "same logic" in every PGDAC version?

Would you like to send information about it?

Thank you!

PgDAC is compatible with Delphi versions that support Unicode and with versions without Unicode (before RAD Studio 2009). Therefore PgDAC will use the same classes for all these versions:

- if TPgConnection.Options.UseUnicode=True, then TWideStringField will be used for string fields
- if TPgConnection.Options.UseUnicode=False, then TStringField will be used for string fields

This behavior of PgDAC is correct.
