Creating Firebird database programatically (Delphi)

18 Apr 2006 Delphi/Object Pascal/Pascal, Firebird

Today my colleague asked me the question, “How to create FB database programatically from Delphi?". Well, the solution is very easy, just use the following code (it’s using the InterBase Express components):

IBDatabase1.DatabaseName := ChangeFileExt(Application.ExeName, '.fdb');
IBDatabase1.Params.Add('USER ''SYSDBA''');
IBDatabase1.Params.Add('PASSWORD ''masterkey''');
IBDatabase1.Params.Add('PAGE_SIZE 4096');
IBDatabase1.Params.Add('DEFAULT CHARACTER SET WIN1250');
