Getting extended BDE Driver Info
Posted on 2001-06-27
I'm trying to write a BDE Admin substitute (which does a lot more than the BDE Admin does). I'm about 80% through it, and I've decided to try to make the program actually create aliases.
If you open the BDE Administrator and select any alias, you will notice that a few of the definitions have multiple options (for Paradox you can change ENABLE BCD to true or false). Oracle, Interbase, DB2 etc have even more definitions with multiple options.
What I would like to know is, how can I tell what these options are? Where are they read from, or what defines them.
Another definition with Oracle is SERVER NAME which is a combo containing a list of just Oracle libraries. How does the BDE know about these?
I know 300 points isn't much for a question like this, but I'll offer another 300 points to the person who can point me in the right direction and maybe getting me started. I dont want it all written for me, but an example would be nice :)
