I'm trying to pass an ADOConnection to an ADO query in a DLL.
When I try to activate the query I get an EOleException error.
I'm using Delphi 6 and am calling CoInitialize.
What am I missing or am doing wrong.
Any help would be appreciated.
TIA
Jeff

Hi medusaresearch2,
this code works properly. Note that if you're passing strings, your first uses clause must be ShareMem in both DLL and project:

uses
  ShareMem,
  ...
  ADODb,
  ActiveX,
  ...;

...
...    
    try
{ CoInitialize  }
        CoInitialize(nil);
{ Connection createing }
        adoConn                  := TAdoConnection.Create(myComp);
        adoConn.ConnectionString := sConn;
        adoConn.LoginPrompt      := False;
        adoConn.Connected        := True;
    except
        on e: exception do
        begin
            WriteLog('   ===> Connection Error <===');
            WriteLog(e.Message);
            CoUnInitialize;
            raise;
        end;
    end;
...
{ Query }
    try
        qryIndex            := TAdoQuery.Create(myComp);
        qryIndex.Connection := adoConn;
        qryIndex.Close;
        qryIndex.SQL.Add('Select * From ' + sTableName);
        qryIndex.SQL.Add(' Where ' + sFilter + ' <> ' + #39 + #39);

        qryIndex.Prepared;
        qryIndex.Open;
        ...
        ...

Bracco,

I'm passing an existing ado connection to a routine in a DLL from the main program:

Main program:
   EditData( Ado );

DLL:
   procedure EditData( ADOConn : TAdoConnection ); //DLL routine def

In the DLL, the routine creates a form which has a query component.

  frmEditData := TfrmEditData.Create(Application);

The connection is then set for the query:

  adoQuery.Connection := ADOConn;

Then the query is executed and I get the EOleException error.

What am I missing?

TIA Jeff

Hi medusaresearch,
i'm trying to do the same, but i think the problem isn't in the adoConn or in the adoQuery. If the query is created properly i think there's no problem there.

Hi Medusaresearch2,
i tried and the code works properly. In a main program i create the connection.

DLL
------
procedure editData(adoConn: TAdoConnection);
var frmEdit: TfrmEditFields;
begin
    frmEdit                  := TfrmEditFields.Create(adoConn);
    frmEdit.ShowModal;
    frmEdit.freeMemory;
    frmEdit.Free;
end;

frmEdit
---------
constructor TfrmEditFields.create(adoConn: TAdoConnection);
begin
    inherited Create(nil);
    myConn := TAdoConnection.Create(self);
    myConn := adoConn;
end;

procedure TfrmEditFields.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
begin
    AdoQry.Connection := myConn;
    AdoQry.Close;
    AdoQry.SQL.Clear;
    AdoQry.SQL.Add('Select * from TableName');
    AdoQry.Prepared := True;
    AdoQry.Open;

    if not ( AdoQry.Eof ) then
    begin
        edtField1.Text := AdoQry.FieldByName('Field1').AsString;
        edtField2.Text := AdoQry.FieldByName('Field2').AsString;
        edtField3.Text := AdoQry.FieldByName('Field3').AsString;
    end;
end;

Hope it helps you
