VbScriptXtra FAQs/Databasing

VbScriptXtra for Macromedia Director

Can I use DAO or ADO with VbScriptXtra?

Yes, it is possible. VbScriptXtra works well with Microsoft Data Access Objects (DAO) or Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO).

Unlike ADOxtra which is directly targeted to providing ADO in Director, VbScriptXtra provides a way to use all scriptable objects (COM Automation). So, VbScriptXtra documentation does not provide a specific description of ADO itself, although it provides several samples. Refer to ADO documentation files shipped with MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components).

You may use ObjectBrowser autodocumentation companion to invoke a help file for ADO or DAO.
Make sure you have put ObjectBrowser xtra into Director's xtras folder. Select Xtras\VbScriptXtra\Object Browser... to invoke ObjectBrowser window.
To invoke a help file for ADO find 'Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.5 Library' item, right click it and choose 'Invoke type library help'.

To invoke a help file for DAO find 'Microsoft DAO 2.5/3.5 Compatibility Library' item, right click it and choose 'Invoke type library help'.

Demo movie "VbScriptXtra & ADO databasing guided tour" is available for download.
