I'm using this excellent library in my projects but now I have to store BMP files in one MS-Access database (OLE Object data type).
Could you please provide me an example showing how to load and store these BMP files and then display them on the GUI?
"If you use #import statement, you cannot avoid jump-to-exception situation even if you want to avoid it. "
This is not completely true:
Just use the raw_METHODNAME or for properties the GetPROPERTYNAME methods on the smart pointer.
hr = spRecordset->get_Status();
this uses directly the interface implementation without error checking.
Can be quite handy when the method/property is expected to fail but you don't want the overhead of the exception handling which makes the program much slower.
Otherwise a great article (haven't yet examined the source files), only 4 weeks too late for me - just switched from DAO to ADO ;-)
i install the SypExpressODL.exe normally and compile the sample "AddrBook" OK.
But it can not run , message is can not find the SYPEXPRESSODL.dll and else SYPEXPRESSODL*.dll while in UNICODE environment
I just downloaded your Library. Before I start testing it, can you tell me if your Library supports UNICODE.
Can I translate it in an unicide environment and is it possible to write UNICODE strings to the database
The library is Amazing. We were using direct ODBC calls to the database. It used to take 23 seconds to execute the query. Now, with Express library it takes less than 4 seconds. I don't know if this is the power of Express library or the difference between ODBC and OLE DB technology. But anyway, the library is amazing and it is unbelievable that this hugh library is given away free.
