at this live for you. However, starting with Tutorial 1, you should see
(for the connection object) blank Server, Path and Database properties.
Please confirm this. yes this ic right.

instead a property RememberPassword? Please answer this.
Saved password is the only property other than password.
> Inspect the code in the FormCreate and InitializeConnection methods of
TFormTutorial1. If the SYSDBA password doesn't match those for your server,
change it. If you are connecting to a remote server, change the code for
the Protocol property to 'cpTCP_IP' instead of 'cpLocal' and change the code
for the Server property to be the name of your server (as identified on your
machine in HOSTS file) instead of an empty string.

when I try the server as the server computer which is [kids] I get
unavailble databse
when I set it to local i get cannot attach ot passord database.
Still i havent been able to use the demo. sorry, but i did use the
employee.gdb that comes with firebird and i can connect to that which is on
the server just dont know how to change the information ie: like change or
add employees for example
thanks again for trying we will get it eventually..
> Once the initial code is correct for this demo, you will simply run the
project in the IDE and it will create the database for you, and populate it
with data. After you close the app and return to the IDE, you should see
the appropriate properties for connecting have been written in for you.

> The main form on the second demo inherits from the first. If you already
created the database in demo 1, then demo 2 will connect to it (provided you
update the code to reflect any variations you made in demo 1); otherwise it
will use the inherited behaviour and create the database before connecting
to it. When you open the project, press Ctrl-F12 and bring all of the
project units up into your IDE. Inspect the code to see what's going on.

to another. Just provide answers to those two questions and then I'll know
whether it is necessary to explain how to set up the password options.
