ADO Xtra for Macromedia Director
ADOxtra extends the capabilities of Lingo (Director's scripting language) with ability to access databases using ADO.
ADOxtra allows you to retrieve or modify data in MS Access files, MS SQL Server and Oracle databases, ODBC compliant databases from authoring and projector locally and over LAN and from Shockwave over Internet.
ADOxtra provides recordset-based data accessing with automatic type casting that grants the ability to work with a database field value of that type that it is in a database. So integer database fields look like integer Lingo values and text database fields look like string Lingo values, etc. You do not need to explicitly convert values.
ADOxtra supports large binary data (BLOB) via free BinaryXtra.
