bug re TSQLQuery?
« on: November 29, 2020, 10:16:05 pm »
I am a long time user of Delphi and a beginner in Lazarus.

Currently I am using Lazarus 1.8.4 in Windows7.

I found a weird behaviour of component TSQLQuery.

It seems a bug to me, but I would like to discuss the question here.

say you have
qry:TSQLQuery;
IBConnection:TIBConnection;
trRead:TSQLTransaction;

I use these components to access a Firebird v. 2.5 DB.

I wrote the code below (please read the code at the bottom of this message).

When the program reaches the last line
   a:=qry.FieldByName('id_cst').IsNull;

an exception is raised saying 'field ID_CST not found'.

It took a while to me to realize that I assigned the query SQL in
   qry.SQL.Text:='select * from tb_cst';

without closing the query first. The correct code would be:

   qry.Close;
   qry.SQL.Text:='select * from tb_cst';

However Delphi does not allow to assign the SQL of an open query and the exception would have been raised in this line
   qry.SQL.Text:='select * from tb_cst';

What Delphi does seems the correct way to go. At least, I would have spared a long time trying to understand the problem.

Should I report a bug? Or maybe this behaviour has been corrected in the most recent versions?

Thank you

   // access the DB

      IBConnection.Connected:=true;
   except
      ShowMessage('Cannot connect to the server');
      Close;
      Exit;
   end;

   qry.Close;

   PRIMARY KEY ( ID_DPT )
   )
   *)


   qry.Open;
   qry.First;
   a:=qry.FieldByName('id_dpt').IsNull; // check for field ID_DPT: OK
