How to read Interbase DB? (Beginner)

Post by Tobi » Wed Jun 07, 2006 9:34 am

I want:
Open the file c:\db.gdf
(This is a Interbase database)
Get all the data of a specific table (maybe in a wxString or in a text file or what else)

I do not understand the usage of the wxDB. I have a firebird database without a username and password. Where do I set the filename to my database?

Also check out the DatabaseLayer library for an alternative to the wxDB classes if you don't want (or need) to setup an ODBC driver and DSN. Alternatively, the DatabaseLayer also has ODBC support as of the latest release and may be easier to use (at least it is for me).
