I can connect to an existing Firebird 2.5x or 3.x database using TIBConnection. I leave the PAGE_SIZE parameter and CHARSET, and DIALECT properties blank.   The only property that gets a value filled in is the DIALECT property (3).  I don't want to specificy a charset or page size in the TIBConnection, in case that will conflict with what settings are actually in the database file. ... or.. maybe I worry too much.  Maybe what ever values I put in those settings are ignored by TIBConnection.... Is there a different way to find this stuff out?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I have found that I can simply do a SELECT on the MON$DATABASE table and get all the info I need.  This topic can be set to "Resolved".
