Hello!
I am writing a database program using ADO and I want
to have a stop button that will be able to stop a query in the middle (If it is taking too long, and the user decide to cancel the query...).
Everything I tried so far faild, and I have no more ideas.
Does anyone knows how can it be done???
10X a lot,
Inbal.

I don't do any DB stuff, but this article looked promising: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&safe=off&th=46963f664d27dde0,2&seekm=3b38f20e_1%40dnews#p

Make sure you set the ExecuteOptions of the ADOQuery to
include eoAsyncFetch. If you don't you will not get the event OnFetchProgress.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

There is a brute force method. Run the query in a thread and kill the thread whenever you want. In fact, you need to run it in a thread anyway, or the STOP button will not react.
But I hope there is a better way
