ABC What's New

In recent Delphi and C++ Builder releases, particularly Version 5 onwards, different databases use a variety of methods and support different subsets of this functionality in their TDataset descendant classes. The ABC dataset adapter classes describe the TDataset class capabilities - mapping dataset class properties and methods to a standard set of properties and methods used by ABC controls.
