Sorry,

TSession.ModifyAlias(Name: string; List: TStrings);

Name = Alias name
List = the Params for the alias

I suggest you use TSession.GetAliasParams
then use the TStrings.Values["param name"] property to set
the parameter you want
then pass the same TStrings back in ModifyAlias()

if you still need a hand I can
put together a src file for you.

Hope THIS is what you wanted

best regards,
jdev

Hi, GERSOFT

You need to use the BDE API function AddAlias.

function DbiAddAlias (hCfg: hDBICfg; pszAliasName: PChar; pszDriverType: PChar; pszParams: PChar; bPersist: Bool): DBIResult stdcall;

This is a nasty looking function call, so I will try to give an example which makes it easier to understand. For further information, you need to look in the BDE API help file and search for the AddAlias function.


1. Add the following units to your uses clause:

uses DB, DbiProcs;

2. Add a procedure like this:

procedure AddMyAlias(AliasName, AliasPath: String);
begin  
  // Check takes a DbiResult and determines if there is an error
  Check(dbiInit(Nil));  // Require in order to use DbiAddAlias
  Check(DbiAddAlias(Nil, PChar(AliasName), Nil,
        PChar(AliasPath), True));
end;

3. Call the function like this:

AddMyAlias('TestAlias','PATH:C:\MYPATH');

Regards, SupWang

Try using the TSession object. It has a method:
procedure AddAlias(const Name, Driver: string; List: TStrings);

I cut and pasted this example from some Delphi documentation:
//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
var
  MyList: TStringList;
begin
  MyList := TStringList.Create;
  try
    with MyList do
    begin
      Add('SERVER NAME=IB_SERVER:/PATH/DATABASE.GDB');
      Add('USER NAME=MYNAME');
    end;
    Session1.AddAlias('NewIBAlias', 'INTRBASE', MyList);
  finally
    MyList.Free;
  end;
end;
//------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope you can get what you need from this :)

best regards,
