Hi Experts,

my form contains the following components:
    OpenDialog1: TOpenDialog;
    IBDatabase1: TIBDatabase;
    IBTransaction1: TIBTransaction;
    Button1: TButton;

By pressing Button1 I'd like to create a new database.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   if OpenDialog1.Execute then
      IBDatabase1.DatabaseName := OpenDialog1.FileName;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Clear;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('user_name=sysdba');
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('password=masterkey');
   IBDatabase1.SQLDialect := 3;
   IBDatabase1.CreateDatabase;
end;

Running the project I got the error message:

---------------------------
Debugger Exception Notification
---------------------------
Project Project1.exe raised exception class EIBInterBaseError with message 'Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator to set up an InterBase login'. Process stopped. Use Step or Run to continue.
---------------------------
OK   Help  
---------------------------

In principle the SYSDBA and masterkey are preset.
What is wrong? How can I open the created DB?

try it like this:

  if OpenDialog1.Execute then
      IBDatabase1.DatabaseName := OpenDialog1.FileName;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Clear;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('USER ''SYSDBA''');
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('PASSWORD ''masterkey''');
   IBDatabase1.SQLDialect := 3;
   IBDatabase1.CreateDatabase;

   IBDatabase1.Open;

I used the same procedure:

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   if OpenDialog1.Execute then
      IBDatabase1.DatabaseName := OpenDialog1.FileName;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Clear;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('USER ''SYSDBA''');
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('PASSWORD ''masterkey''');
   IBDatabase1.SQLDialect := 3;
   IBDatabase1.LoginPrompt := False;
   IBDatabase1.Open;
end;

and the error message is:

---------------------------
Debugger Exception Notification
---------------------------
Project Project1.exe raised exception class EIBInterBaseError with message 'Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator to set up an InterBase login'. Process stopped. Use Step or Run to continue.

Actualy, just IBDatabase1.Open; will do

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   IBDatabase1.Open;
end;

you have set all the parameters in this other method

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if OpenDialog1.Execute then
      IBDatabase1.DatabaseName := OpenDialog1.FileName;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Clear;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('USER ''SYSDBA''');
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('PASSWORD ''masterkey''');
   IBDatabase1.SQLDialect := 3;
   IBDatabase1.CreateDatabase;
end;

if you want to check if the DB is active do something like:

  if IBDatabase1.Connected then
    ShowMessage('opened');

This second works too. Thanks. Completely answered.

I outlined wrong my question. When I try to open an existing DB, my comment ID: 17777003 above is right unfortunately.

oh I see, well you can remove the params, and access directly through the properties of the ibconnection, something like:

   IBDatabase1.Params.Clear; //to clear the params
   IBDatabase1.Username := 'SYSDBA';
   IBDatabase1.Password := 'masterkey';
   IBDatabase1.SQLDialect := 3;
   IBDatabase1.Open;

Unfortunately this don't work. The debugger stops at lines

      IBDatabase1.Username := 'SYSDBA';
      IBDatabase1.Password := 'masterkey';

This is normal because they are parameters but the offered solution above for create database don't work too. I don't understand why accepts it for creating DB and for opening not.

Just a personal question: may I know your given name?

I see, well the thing is that the lines I gave you use the IB script syntax, if you were to open an IBManager you could enter a command to create a db, and the user and password must be specified like that. now for opening it;s a dirrerent story, it would be great if you could try it with your own code.... just for open:

   IBDatabase1.Params.Clear;
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('user_name=sysdba');
   IBDatabase1.Params.Add ('password=masterkey');

Cheers

BTW. I'm Alex

Thanks Alex,

if you watch my original question I used this syntax to create a DB. I simply don't understand why have I to use different syntaxes for different commands. I have to to tell you I am only a "hobby" programmer - look at my member profile.

Again thank you for your support!

with best regards
