I use WindowsForm with C# and Visual Studio 16.8.1
Can you read a Blob field (MySql db) via Binding ?
I find it possible to do so with Binary (BLOB) fields containing Images, via "Image" and Varchar with "Text", but with Bynary (BLOB) containing text ?
What I have tried:
suppose the Blob contains the text
test text on blob field
//read Blob field from a DataTable with DataRow
NoteF = (byte)(row["tag"]);
NoteImgPrec += Encoding.UTF8.GetString(NoteF).Trim();
//with DataSet and Binding source
//ImageDataSet is a PictureBox
//tbFile is a TextBox
//PictureBox from Blob field - image is visible
ImageDataSet.DataBindings.Add(new Binding("Image", bs, "immagine", true));
//Textbox from Text field - text is visible
tbFile.DataBindings.Add(new Binding("Text", bs, "namefile", true));
//Blob field from Blob field
//is possible to assign
//with Binding type for ????
tbNote.DataBindings.Add(new Binding("????" , bs, "tag", false));
//if I use
tbNote.DataBindings.Add(new Binding("Text" , bs, "tag", false));
//the result is Byte Array
