Turbo Delphi and database filter
Posted by Bjorn2 p15905 on January 29, 2008
For database programs, I use an old professional Delphi edition together with dBase tables. Disadvantage: I have to install the BDE on computer of the user.
Recently, in DelphiLand Forum I read that we can program database applications with Turbo Delphi Explorer, that don't need the BDE. Seems that for small tables without the "overkill" BDE, Turbo Delphi Explorer seems better, using TClientDataSet component and XML files.
But can a ClientDataSet also have a Filter, just like the BDE TTable component? Otherwise I shall not upgrade, because my old applications would not work (recompile) anymore.
