Can I use DBPix with databases such as SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL ?
|DBPix is entirely independent of the back-end storage provider.|
If you're storing images in the database then it must provide a 'Long Binary', 'Blob', 'Variant', 'OLE Object' or equivalent binary field type.
If you're storing the images as external files then at most only a text field is required.
Note that in Microsoft Access the OLE Object field-type is simply a binary field. Although Access uses this field-type to store data using OLE Linking and OLE Embedding, you can also use it to store any raw binary data.
Your front-end will need to support ActiveX controls. Suitable front-end development tools include Microsoft Access Forms (which can be linked to external database sources), Internet Explorer, Visual Basic, Visual C++, and many more.
DBPix data-binding works with Microsoft Access Forms and Reports and with the ADO Data Control in Visual Basic.
