Subject Unicode data and Delphi 7
Author Noel Cosgrave
I am trying to find a way of getting UNICODE data in and out of a Firebird database, preferably using DBExpress. I am using the TNT Unicode DB Controls for the UI. Any DBExpress drivers I have tried return UNICODE Char and VarChar fields as TStringField, not TWideString field. Attempting to create the fields manually as TWideStringField naturally enough results in an error. What is the best way of getting UNICODE data to and from the database when using Delphi?
