wxAutomation and ADO work well together

Postby RichardW » Fri Apr 25, 2014 5:20 am

I struggled and struggled with this and finally got it going. I'd like to share what I've done and hopefully it'll help someone avoid the hours of crashing code. (SetDispatchPtr(NULL)?!?!? ... Really?)

This set of classes references the ADODB automation objects. This sample uses an Access Database though any ADO backend should work. Maybe.

I'm using wxWidgets 3.0 and Mingw.

I encapsulated the calls in nice braindeadedly-written classes for ease of reading and because I'm not very good at it. You should be able to glean data thusly:

Code: Select all

Connection conn;
RecordSet r;
r.Open("select * from sometable",&conn);
// Equivalent to:
// r.Open("sometable",&conn);
while (!r.eof()) {
  // Get data by field name.
  wxMessageBox(r.GetValue("somefieldname");
  // or by field index...
  // wxMessageBox(r.GetValue(0));
  r.MoveNext();
}


Likewise, to update the record ADO-style, rather than an INSERT, you could do something like,

Code: Select all

Connection conn;
RecordSet r;
r.Open("select * from sometable",&conn,adOpenStatic,adLockOptimistic);  // Default is readonly.
r.NewData("somefieldname","Some Data");  // Why isn't this called SetValue?  I'll change that.
r.Update();


For those of you that have used ADO (or DAO, for that matter) can see that there's a bit to do still. .AddNew and .MoveFirst/Last are conspicuously missing. They should be easy to implement (he says without knowing any better) so I'll add them as they are required. For most of them, it shouldn't be much more than adding

Code: Select all

void RecordSet::MoveFirst() {
    r.CallMethod("MoveFirst");
}


wxWidgets makes it easy. If anyone has a use for this please post your improvements (Error checking?) here or provide a link to what you did.
