Hi-

I am trying to get firebird from the bazaar working.

Under build methods I don't know the option with the keyboard to add an include directory.
I can only find directories already included. There is no plus symbol that I can click on to add
an extra text control. Running virtualbox with xfce and fedora 27.
I tried clicking the arrow or pressing return. It won't drop down to a blank input field so I can
add the header directory for firebird.

I am also stuck on trying to get the db to connect with firebird.
I tried this:

CONSOLE_APP_MAIN
{
FBSession s;
s.Connect(
"hotchicken",
"localhost",
"sysdba",
"masterkey",
NULL
);
Sql stmt(s);
stmt.SetStatement("Select * from Country");
stmt.Run();

.... more code goes here

It did not connect. I also added a dll to my project where the firebirdTest.cpp file
is located - libfbclient.so. I also replaced masterkey with my passwd.

I don't know if I can't connect because I didn't list the include directory for firebird
under the build methods because the GUI is acting up a little.

Novo was using cmd_line[0] and cmd_line[1] for arguments. Not sure what that was about.
I figured used the same session connect and put in the strings instead of cmd_line[number].

Please assist if you have a moment and any cool ideas.

thx. - mtdew3q

hi-

I got the include directory to work. No way I could do it if I hadn't used that screen before.
Looks a bit odd but managed to add a row.

I am getting the message throwing an instance of IBPP:DBExc

Hi-

I obviously looked at the commandLine() function etc. located in console_app_main in firebird test.
It is just a way to gather arguments passed to the command line.
Well... I added the header and dll files I thought I need for firebird to work.
I added libfbclient.so and ibase.h.

Not sure why it doesn't connect for me with g++.
I even added an include directory for firebird header files.

If anyone spots any reason why it may not connect I am all ears.
I noticed Novo said he fixed compilation issues with msvc. I think that is different than g++.
I do notice that it compiles correctly under g++.
My money is on novo, and I am doing something thick-headed.
I might add that I used a build after Novo posted it was fixed in Nov. 2017.
Since it fixed the compilation error, I am sure I got a good enough fix version.
I will hang out for a day or two and see if anyone has an idea.
If not, I have another idea for later.

thx.-
have a cool weekend-

Subject: connecting to firebird
--------------------------------------
HI-

I am having a little difficulty connecting to firebird.

I use firebird with v. 2.5.7 fedora 27 xfce with g++.
My version of ultimate is 11540 compiled 12/20/2017.
I put package firebird from bazaar in my project.

In debug build methods I put:
-lpng16 -lz -lfreetype -lfbclient

I added include directory:
/usr/local/firebird/include

I added lib directory:
/usr/local/firebird/lib


[#include <Core/Core.h>
#include <Firebird/Firebird.h>

using namespace Upp;

CONSOLE_APP_MAIN
{
  FBSession s;
  s.Connect(
  "/usr/local/firebird/examples/empbuild/employee.fdb",
  "localhost",
  "sysdba",
  "masterkey"
);

Cout()<<"foo";

}


I added the library libfbclient.so.2.5.7 as a file in my
project directory.

I get the error message when execute:
throwing instance of ibpp::DBExc.

The code never prints "foo".

If you scan this and I am making glaring error(s), please let me know.

Thanks for any cool assistance. I will be around on this 3 day weekend
checking in off and on to see if anyone has some tips.

Thx-
