Subject Login and Data Display
Author Jack Cane
Greetings, all,

I am a new IBO user and have some questions.

1. Is the help file distributed only with a registered version? Or can it be
downloaded while working with the evaluation copy? I have found only the
Getting Started Guide, and that leaves out a lot.

I have created two forms:

Form A, based on the MasterLinks example, with tib_connection, a
tib_transaction and three sets of (tIBOtable hooked to tDataSource and
tDataGrid). Except for login problems explained below, this is working ok.

2. With tib_connection.LoginPrompt set to false, the default user name and
password properties are not recognized; ditto with a personal user name and
password which ahve been registered with the InterBase server. I get a
runtime error, but after closing the message boxes the app opens normally.
This happens with either form present in the app by itself, or with both
forms present in the app. I would be happy to remove all security, since the
app will only be run locally by me.


Form B, based on the MasterDetail example, with a tib_connection, a
tib_transaction and two tib_CtrlGrid.

Each of CtrlGrid contains a tib_navigation bar, a tib_update bar and
controls from the IBOControls palette, with data access via tib_connection,
tib_transaction, tib_query and tib_DataSource. Both queries are set active
at design time and in the form's OnCreate method. The sql properties of both
queries are set to "select * from (tablename) for update".

Q3. The control grids do not display any data at startup, and all buttons in
the nav/update bars are greyed out. Can one of you give me an idea of what
might be missing?
