Subject String Blob handling?
Author Chuck Belanger

I am a little confused about using Blob (text) fields in IBO. (Delphi
XE2, FB 2.52, Win7)

When I do the following

Grid.Cell[x,y].asString := qry.FieldByName('some_blob').asString;

Are there limits to the string length? Are they ~32K or the Delphi
String limits (> 1 billion)?

If they are the lower amount, I would like to make sure I can pass
longer strings.
What is the best IBO way of doing this?

I tried

and that just led to an error: Cannot access some_blob as DateTime.
