__fastcall virtual TVarBytesField(System::Classes::TComponent* AOwner);
Most applications do not explicitly create instances of TBytesField. Instead, the field components are created automatically, as persistent field components defined in the Fields editor at design time or as dynamic field components created automatically by the dataset.
Create sets the DataType property to ftBytes. The AOwner parameter specifies the component, typically a dataset, that becomes the new field's Owner. The Owner is responsible for freeing the component.
In the rare cases when you must create a persistent field component at runtime, call Create to create and initialize an instance of TBytesField. After instantiating a TBytesField, associate it with a specific field by setting its FieldName property to the name of the field. Give the TBytesField a unique identifier in the Name property. Establish where the field appears in the collection of fields by providing an ordinal number in the Index property. Associate the TBytesField with a dataset component by setting its DataSet property to the name of the dataset component.
var T: TBytesField; begin SQLDataSet1.Close; T := TBytesField.Create(SQLDataSet1); T.FieldName := 'BytesField'; T.Name := SQLDataSet1.Name + T.FieldName; T.Index := SQLDataSet1.FieldCount; T.DataSet := SQLDataSet1; SQLDataSet1.FieldDefs.UpDate; SQLDataSet1.Open; end;
SQLDataSet1->Close(); TBytesField *T = new TBytesField(SQLDataSet1); T->FieldName = "BytesField"; T->Name = SQLDataSet1->Name + T->FieldName; T->Index = SQLDataSet1->FieldCount; T->DataSet = SQLDataSet1; SQLDataSet1->FieldDefs->UpDate(); SQLDataSet1->Open();
