Hi everyone...

I want to extract some information from a BDE alias. This alias is a "MS SQL - SQL Link". I want to get the server name, database name and user name. I looked at the BDE API help, but couldn't find anything in this direction. Any code example is highly welcome :-]

Thanks, Jonny...

Call GetAliasParams to retrieve the BDE configuration parameters for a specified alias.

Here's an example:

Session.GetAliasParams('DBMSSQL', ListBox1.items);

Here's another example (from the Delphi help files):

MyStringList := TStringList.Create;
try
  Session.GetAliasParams('DBDEMOS',MyStringList);
  { fill a list box with driver names for the user to select from }
  ListBox1.Items := MyStringList;
finally
  MyStringList.Free;
end;
