I've got a small application that connects to an Oracle Database via it's ODBC entry.  The only thing that's wrong with it is that it always prompts for a UserID and Password.

I want to hard-code these so the user does not receieve the prompt.  How do I do this?

Hello

  you need to add database component, and change the property LoginPrompet to false

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with Database1 do begin
    Params.Values['USER NAME'] := 'Mohammed';
    Params.Values['PASSWORD'] := 'zzz';
    LoginPrompt := False;
    Connected := True;
  end;
  Table1.open;
end;

if you need the full project, email me at nasman@mogaza.org

Thanks for the reply, but it's not relevant for me to add a database component, or any other for that fact.  I have created a component that creates the DSN and then creates a TQuery to connect to it so that I can execute SQL statements.

The first time I execute an SQL statement the window pops up asking for UserID & password.

Therefore, adding another component will not solve the problem as I can't connect to the database until the DSN has been created and this only happens after the component has been created.

Besides, I tried the code and it didn't work.

Thanks again,

MoonCalf.

Sorry, my mistake.

It does work fine as long as I assure that the DB component is connected before I execute an SQL statement.

Thanks a lot,
