Hi,

I am using DBISAM as a BDE replacement and need to be able to search for text within a memo. I have been told that using onfilterrecord works, but my attempts to implement it have failed so far.

How to you do this?

Onfilterevent...

Accept:???

Thanks

John

You should be able to do this:

procedure TForm1.Table1FilterRecord(DataSet: TDataSet; var Accept: Boolean);

begin
  Accept := Pos('The string to search for', DataSet['TheMemoField']) > 0;
end;

Cheers,

Raymond.

What about using the LIKE keyword:

SELECT * FROM TABLE1 WHERE FIELDX LIKE '%partial string%'

(I just can't remember if it is '%' or '*' for the LIKE comparision).

Var
SearchCode: String;
 
procedure TForm1.Table1FilterRecord(DataSet: TDataSet;var Accept: Boolean);
  begin
Accept := (AnsiStrLIComp(PChar(Table1MemoField.AsString),         PChar(SearchCode), Length(SearchCode)) = 0);
  end;


ps alex your correct already its percent (though im not sure if it is
 '%searchcode%' or 'searchcode%' ;-)

its % for sql-statement-where-clause
its * for filters, where it can only be appended

to barry,
i guess this does not work,
had tested it similar (not with a persistent field)
and get the error: Cannot access Field ... on Filter (or similar)
did you tested it?
i guess no, then you had post an answer :-))

Raymond's answer works great. Is there a way to make it case insensitive?

Thanks

John

How about this:

procedure TForm1.Table1FilterRecord(DataSet: TDataSet; var Accept: Boolean);

begin
  Accept := Pos(UpperCase('The string to search for'), UpperCase(DataSet['TheMemoField'])) > 0;
end;

You could factor out the uppercase-ing of the search string to make it a little faster...

Cheers,

Raymond.
