Any IBDataSet Component Tutorials?
I've found a few sets of documents concerning IBX components in Delphi 7, but I am having trouble finding a good example of source code that shows how you would update, delete, or insert into an Interbase database using the IBDataSet component...does anyone know of a good site to point me too?

Creating a CLX database application
Did your Delphi 7 product box come with a Quick Start book?
My Borland C++ Builder 6 product box came with such a book.
Chapter 5 is "Creating a CLX database application - a tutorial".
It uses an InterBase database, employee.gdb, that is provided with C++ Builder. By default, the InterBase installation places employee.gdb in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Borland Shared\Data.
It provides a sweeping overview of connecting to an existing database and some common manipulations.
It also mentions a Developer's Guide book and related database topics. My C++ Builder came with a big, thick Developer's Guide. I am slogging thru the first chapter on databases in it.
If your Delphi 7 is a Professional version, then you too should have CLX components. C++ Builder functions/methods have been coded to be compatible with the Delphi VCL components and the Delphi equivalents should be easy to code.
