TIBCConnection and MON$CREATION_DATE

Post by Fabrice » Mon 01 Oct 2018 07:29

Hello,


I haven't found access of MON$DATABASE.MON$CREATION_DATE in TIBCConnection component.
Could you add a new property like TIBCConnection.GetCreation_date to return this value like ?
This value is very important to get the last backup date. Of course a simple query can return this value but it's always better when a method or read-only property do it ;-)

Best regards,

Since IBDAS is designed to work with both InterBase and Firebird, we can create properties that will work with both DBMSs. But the functionality you need applies only to Firebird, so we cannot add the property you specified, and you can implement the functionality you need on your own in your application.
