Description

Creates an instance of TCurrencyField.

Most applications do not explicitly create instances of TCurrencyField. Instead, the field components are created automatically, as persistent field components defined in the Fields editor at design time or as dynamic field components created automatically by the dataset.

Create sets the DataType property to ftCurrency and the currency property to true. The AOwner parameter specifies the component, typically a dataset, that becomes the new field's Owner. The Owner is responsible for freeing the component.

In the rare cases when you must create a persistent field component at runtime, call Create to create and initialize an instance of TCurrencyField. After instantiating a TCurrencyField, associate it with a specific field by setting its FieldName property to the name of the field. Give the TCurrencyField a unique identifier in the Name property. Establish where the field appears in the collection of fields by providing an ordinal number in the Index property. Associate the TCurrencyField with a dataset component by setting its DataSet property to the name of the dataset component.

The example below creates a TCurrencyField object for a field named Amount accessed through a TSQLDataSet named SQLDataSet1.



var
T: TCurrencyField;
begin
SQLDataSet1.Close;
T := TCurrencyField.Create(SQLDataSet1);
T.FieldName := 'Amount';
T.Name := SQLDataSet1.Name + T.FieldName;
T.Index := SQLDataSet1.FieldCount;
T.DataSet := SQLDataSet1;
SQLDataSet1.FieldDefs.UpDate;
SQLDataSet1.Open;
end;



SQLDataSet1->Close();
TCurrencyField *T = new TCurrencyField(SQLDataSet1);
T->FieldName = "Amount";
T->Name = SQLDataSet1->Name + T->FieldName;
T->Index = SQLDataSet1->FieldCount;
T->DataSet = SQLDataSet1;
SQLDataSet1->FieldDefs->UpDate();
SQLDataSet1->Open();
