Subject Re: R: R: R: R: [IBO] for Jason: TIBOQuery vs. TFIBDataset speed test
Author Carlos H. Cantu
Sorry, but TFields should be faster than any other method like
FieldByName,etc. I remember to read a message from Jason in the past
where he said that if he would start building IBO right now, he would
sure include TFields in the native components.

In other words, TFields are nice and fast :)

99% of my projects uses TIBO components for data manipulation, mixed
with TIB_cursor and TIB_DSQL when needed. Of course, native controls
has it advantages, but for me, 3rd compatibility with Infopower and
other VCL components is a must-have, so TIBO is my choice.

Ah... I'm very satisfied with the performance I have.
