Read the Characteristics.dbVersion property of your connection object. There are other handy connection characteristics available in this property too. Browse the IB_SQL.dpr project in your ibobjects root directory to see them in use (inspect IBF_SQL.pas, it all happens in procedure TfrmSQL.IB_ConnectionSourceConnectedChanged(
Sender: TIB_ConnectionLink; IB_Connection: TIB_Connection);
