DBI and Interbase

The TTable component contents properties for field information (FieldDefs) and index information (IndexDefs) but NOT for referential integrity information.

I have tried to use the DBI interface of Delphi 1.0 directly for getting the referential integrity information (DbiGetRintDesc) of a table.

It works well for Paradox tables but it does NOT work for Interbase tables. Maybe I did not use the correct value for the pszDriverType parameter in the DbiOpenRIntList function. I tried 'INTRBASE', 'INTERBASE' etc. but none of them worked.

CAN ANYONE HELP ME?

pszDriverType       Type: pCHAR       (Input)

Pointer to the driver type; required only if no extension is specified by pszTableName. Currently, the only valid type is szPARADOX.

It seems you can't use this function with an Interbase driver.
