|Subject||RE: [IBDI] About IBX and Firebird|
I've been lurking in the newsgroups and seen quite a bit of discussion--which is comforting. I've been thrown into a couple of projects right off the bat and I should probably slow up a bit and go through the examples some more. I've read (or scanned) through the getting started guide, but it won't really sink in until I just wade out there and start swimming. (Hmmnnn.... I suppose there's a pun in there somewhere.)
Thanks to both of you (Kevin and Daniel) for your comments.

Best way to learn IBO is to dive into the sample apps and tutorials.
One of the most frustrating components is the TIB_LookupCombo. Very
difficult to get the first one working.
Jason even has trouble at times with this one.
The newsgroup is a great one with a lot of people helping out. If you need
some functionality, it's probably there and you just can't take the time to
scour demo apps, the newsgroup is pretty responsive.
