Sternas,

Is it possible to add ibx4lazarus into CT?

Why IBX and Why Lazarus

Cheers,
Miquel.

I am not deep into Databases but wouldn't ZeosDBO do the job with Interbase/Firebird databases?

What is the benefit of using ibx4lazarus over ZeosDBO? There is a case that i might get involved in an
application that will need to access Firebird database and i would like to know the best tool for this purpose

Kostas

I realize this is old, but you can also use IB Objects to connect to Firebird/InterBase with FPC/Lazarus.

Excuse me, but I can't install the IBX package. I follow the instructions from \doc\readme.xhtml :
" .... open the “dclibx.lpk” package description file using the “Package->Open Package File” menu item to open the file.
When the Package Editor opens, click on “Use->Install”. Lazarus should now recompile itself and restart. ..."
Unfortunately I have a message :
"Error: One or more required packages were not found. See package graph for details."
there is a graph, that shows IDEIntf as missing :evil:
Please help me to fix above problem ?

Open package dclibx.lpk. Change IDEIntf with bs_IDEIntf. Compile and Install. This is all.

I installed IBX components successfully, but after CodeTyphon rebuilt itself they are not appear for use and every time I start CT I see a message:
"IBX is unable to locate the Firebird Library - have you remembered to install it ?".
What can I do, to fix this ?

I have 2 home computers with 32 bits Firebird server 2.5.5.26952 installed under Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 - both OS 64 bits.
I did search through Google and found flamerobin-0.9.2-1-setup.exe from sourceforge.net, then I did install it.
The problem persists ....
May be I have to uninstall and then again install the IBX components ?

1. I did add : C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\bin; into System variable Path, but the problem persists;
2. I did remove the dclibx from installed packages and Save and rebuild IDE, then after restart I did install dclibx.lpk, Save and rebuild IDE, then after restart the problem persists - every time I start CT I see a message:
"IBX is unable to locate the Firebird Library - have you remembered to install it ?".

have you performed installation of 'gds32.dll' ( must by in ..\windows\syswow64).
Usage:
instclient i[nstall] [ -f[orce] ] library [with admininstrator privilegies]
q[uery] library
r[emove] library
where library is: f[bclient] | g[ds32]
instclient will put file in System32; copy to syswow64

for further info see ..ibx\doc\readme.windows.xhtml (.How IBX Finds the Firebird DLL)

i hope now it will work

I give up ....
I can not make IBX components to work.
Everything is o.k. - 3 files: fbclient.dll, firebird.conf and firebird.msg exist in C:\Windows\System32 and in C:\Windows\SysWOW64.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Firebird Project\Firebird Server\Instances
contains
a string value name : DefaultInstance
a string value data : C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\
Immediateli on starting of CodeTyphon, there is no project opened, I see that message:
"IBX is unable to locate the Firebird Library - have you remembered to install it ?".

Do you think I will able to work with Firebird and Zeos components of CodeTyphon ?

Are you willing to use IB Objects to connect to Firebird?
I am actively developing and supporting IBO for Free Pascal Compiler.
