class PASCALIMPLEMENTATION TDBDataSet : public TBDEDataSet
TDBDataSet encapsulates database connectivity for descendant dataset objects.
TDBDataSet defines database-related connectivity properties and methods for a dataset. Applications never use TDBDataSet objects directly. Instead they use the descendants of TDBDataSet, such as TQuery, TStoredProc, and TTable, which inherit its database-related properties and methods.
Developers who create custom dataset components may want to derive them from TDBDataSet to inherit to the database-specific properties of TDBDataSet in addition to all the functionality of TDataSet and the BDE-related properties and methods of TBDEDataSet. In this case, developers should examine the source code to study the protected methods of TDBDataSet that are not documented for this object.
