I have been a Delphi hobbyist for a couple of years now but in all that time I have been reluctant to create programs that dealt with databases for one reason or another but I figured it was time I start learning and I have decided to use Firebird as my RDMS and pair that up with the Zeoslib components for connectivity because I have hear they are easy to use and are free which is always a plus for anyone on a budget such as myself.
However I been hard pressed to find any really good "newbie" examples which show the interaction between the components and the DB so I have come here to ask the experts where I might find such examples but more importantly a few examples of their own that I might be able to learn from.
What I am specifically looking for is examples on how the components interact with each other (like which component connects to which) and the code needed to do things like....
1. Display the contents of one field in the database on a label, edit, or memo control and the contents of another field on another label, edit, or memo control.
2. Add / Alter the contents of a field using an edit control and a button
3. Add BLOB items (specifically images) to the database and display just one image from a table or cycle through all the images in a table using the NEXT, PREVIOUS, FIRST, and LAST record commands.
As you can see this is your very basic stuff but for some reason or another I just cant find any good examples which lay this stuff out in a step by step manner which is why I have come here to seek out your assistance and if there is anything about this question you do not understand then don't hesitate to ask and I will try to provide as much information as I can.
