This is a small update I made to the excellent set of ADO classes by Carlos Antollini. Though this might be a little less common than .NET classes, MFC is still very much in use and I hope the changes would be useful to someone.
Dated back to 2005, the original classes did not account for 64 bit data and compilers. I have taken the liberty to add support for 64 bit data such as MS-SQL
BIGINT. I also have support for 64 bit binary data to 64 int conversion useful in situations where we must read MS-SQL ROWVERSION and similar type fields.
I have also added a handful of utility functions to make common tasks part of the classes. I did however kept the original code in place for the most part and insured to keep backward compatibility.
Of course, all of this is meant to be compiled as a 32 bit application. I might add more for 64 bit applications later, if necessary.
You might also have to get a new TLB for some operating system. It is included in this article and from Microsoft. (msado60_Backcompat_i386.tlb)
Using the code
In this section, I will not repeat what Carlos described in detail in his original post but concentrate on my changes.
Tweaking the header for the host operating system
Depending on the bit size of the host operating system, a different version of ADO is used. Make sure to define this value before including the header if needed:
#define _USE_WINX86_FOLDER_ //Use this when compiling on 64 bit PC
#include <ado2.h> //ADO wrapper class
First, support 64 bit data:
GetFieldValue functions returns a value that contains the value of a field.
BOOL GetFieldValue(LPCTSTR lpFieldName, INT64& lValue);
BOOL GetFieldValue(int nIndex, INT64& lValue);
BOOL GetFieldValue(LPCTSTR lpFieldName, UINT64& ulValue);
BOOL GetFieldValue(int nIndex, UINT64& ulValue);
SetFieldValue functions sets the value of a field.
BOOL SetFieldValue(int nIndex, INT64 lValue);
BOOL SetFieldValue(LPCTSTR lpFieldName, INT64 lValue);
BOOL SetFieldValue(int nIndex, UINT64 lValue);
BOOL SetFieldValue(LPCTSTR lpFieldName, UINT64 lValue);
New utility functions
Here are my new utility functions that wraps commonly used tasks.
CADODatabase class has a set of functions that corresponds to the
_ConnectionPtr. To this class, I have added these:
bool supIsValidDBPtr - Returns true if the object is initialized and is ready to be used
- On a new pointer
pDB->supIsValidDBPtr() should return false
- On a new initialized pointer
(pDB = new CADODatabase),
pDB->supIsValidDBPtr() should return true
bool supReopenDB - Tries to close and reopen a database, making a test to insure connectivity with a "SELECT 1" recordset
bool supIsDBAccessible - Test to see if the current DB object can be accessed and optionally test with a "SELECT 1" recordset or try reopen
CADORecordset class has a set of functions that corresponds to the
_RecordsetPtr. To this class, I have added these:
- 64 bit support
bool supHasRecord() - Simple way to check if the last query returned any rows
bool supOpenHasRecord() - Combine the Open method and the above in a single call
__int64 supDbRowVersionTo64(LPCSTR pszField) - Return a 64 bit representation of an SQL Server ROWVERSION field or similar type data
CADOTool class has a set of static utility functions that wraps common tasks:
bool supInitDatabase - Accept a pointer to a pointer, tries to open the connection and then initialize the host's pointer to an initialized
CADODatabase* pDB = NULL;
bool bRc = supInitDatabase(&pDB, szConnectString, 10);
void supCloseDB - Accept a pointer to a pointer and safely closes the database and release resources
bool supIsValidDBPtr - Test the passed
CADODatabase pointer to see if it is allocated and valid on a best effort
bool supIsValidRSPtr - Test the passed
CADORecordset pointer to see if it is allocated and valid on a best effort
void supCleanRS, and
void supCleanPrm all releases appropriate resources and set the host's pointer to NULL.
bool adoBuildConnection - Displays the ADO conenction wizard UI and sets the composed connection string in the passed
CString if success or return false if cancelled or error.
This sample tries to demonstrate basic usage of the classes with a fictitious database.
CADODatabase* pDB = NULL;
CADORecordset* pRS = NULL;
OutputDebugString("You cancelled the dialog!\n");
OutputDebugString("Somehow, the database cannot be opened!\n");
csSQL = "SELECT ID, fldName, fldBirth, fldIsActive FROM tblUserData ORDER BY fldMemberDate DESC";
pRS->SetFieldValue("fldName", CString("First, Last"));
pRS->SetFieldValue("fldBirth", COleDateTime(1980, 10, 2, 0, 0, 0));
if(pDB->Execute("UPDATE tblManager SET fldLastChech = GETDATE() WHERE ID = 3"))
iUpdated = pDB->GetRecordsAffected();
OutputDebugString("Oups, got a database error!\n");
- May 7 2013 - First release of my contributed code to the original 2.20
- May 15th 2013 - Added example and fixed a function error (supOpenHasRecord)
