I am assuming you are talking about the C API (and not the C++ API of
Firebird 3). You need to add a database parameter buffer item of
isc_dpb_lc_ctype (== 48) with the name of the character set as its value
(NOTE: strings are prefixed by the length of the string)

See also "Creating and populating a DPB" on page 44 and on of the
Interbase 6.0 API Guide.
