I am building a project titled handwritten signature verification. I am using visual c++ for my project. In the project, I am to do a software to obtain a signature and do some image manipulation to calculate a few values, negative slant, positive slant and its baseline values. Once I got the values I will need to go to the database to get the pre-stored values of that particular customer and compare both of them to see if they match. How am I suppose to build the database system and make it interact with my program. I am also using visual c++ to write the database. Now I can only manage to do a database to store the values. What commands should I put in my software to call the values from the database to be compared and match.

Don't try to write it yourself, you'll spend the majority of your project time on it.

Definitely use either ODBC or DAO for your database.  MFC has full support for these database schemas.  I personally like DAO for all of my development, especially if you don't have to link in with foreign databases.

You can develop your database schema with Microsoft Access and create CDaoRecordset objects from those schemas.  The documentation is not excessive, but there's enough to get you going quite well.

Take a look at the CDaoDatabase and CDaoRecordset classes.  It will definitely give you everything you need.

Hi
For the database implementation there are different ways u can implement. But i will prefer the direct ODBC functions. Because u will get flexibility here. So don't for MFC classes if u have limited access in database it is better to go for MFC classes
To use ODBC do thge following
1) Create DSN..From control pannel ( 32 bit ODBC)
2) Connect to that DSN by using SQLConnect() , U will get sample code of it from VC help
3) Then befor each sql command execution You have to call sqlAlloc() and after execution you have to execute SqlFreeMem()
4) By using SqlExecDirect you can open data from database

retcode = SQLAllocStmt(hdbc,&hstmt);
retcode = SQLPrepare(hstmt,(UCHAR                  *)(LPCTSTR)csSQLstring,SQL_NTS);
if(retcode = SQLExecDirect(hstmt,(UCHAR               *)(LPCTSTR)csSQLstring, SQL_NTS)== -1)
{
    szError = SqlError(); // Check SQLError(...)
    throw (LPSTR)(LPCTSTR)szError;
}
SQLBindCol(hstmt,i+1, SQL_C_SLONG, &(tempst[i].intvalue), 0,         &cbintfield);
//-----------
//---------( depends on the parameters - fields in the csSQLstring )
//-query)

while (TRUE)   // to do until the specified row
{
    retcode = SQLFetch(hstmt);// in the first fetch will get first //record second fetch second and soon
}

5) all types are availabel in VC help

Try this and implement in ur way
