I'd like to know how to remove picture from a blob field.

I tried to create an empty memory stream and copy that to clientdatasets blob field.

That removed picture cds but after applyupdates the picture got back (never went away).

Pekka
procedure TEtusivu.IWButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
   strBlob, strTmp: TStream;
begin
  try
   cdsBlobtest.Edit;
   strBlob := cdsBlobtest.CreateBlobStream(cdsBlobtest.FieldByName('Image'), bmWrite);
   strTmp := TMemoryStream.Create;
   strBlob.CopyFrom(strTmp,0);
   cdsBlobtest.Post;
   cdsBlobtest.ApplyUpdates(0);
  finally
    strBlob.Free;
    strTmpfree; 
  end;
 
end;

Hi,
I have never tried this but how about editing the record and assigning Null to the field something like:

cdsBlobtest.Edit
cdsblobtest.fieldvalues['Image']:=null;
cdsblobset.post;

Might be worht a try.

Paul.

UPDATE TABLE SET FIELD = NULL WHERE ID = 1

Try also..

cdsBlobtest.FieldByName('Image').asVariant := '';

Have edit above and post below of course. This does work for me.

Yes this worked. Have to remember to put 'Variants' in the uses section.
