Important   It is recommended that you use DFX_Binary instead of this function.

void AFXAPI DFX_LongBinary(
   CDaoFieldExchange* pFX,
   LPCTSTR szName,
   CLongBinary& value,
   DWORD dwBindOptions = 0 


A pointer to an object of class CDaoFieldExchange. This object contains information to define the context for each call of the function. For more information about the operations a CDaoFieldExchange object can specify, see the article DAO Record Field Exchange: How DFX Works.
The name of a data column.
The value stored in the indicated data member — the value to be transferred. For a transfer from recordset to data source, the value, of type CLongBinary, is taken from the specified data member. For a transfer from data source to recordset, the value is stored in the specified data member.
The framework preallocates this amount of memory. If your data is larger, the framework will allocated more space as needed. For better performance, set this size to a value large enough to prevent reallocations.
An option that lets you take advantage of MFC's double buffering mechanism for detecting recordset fields that have changed. The default, AFX_DISABLE_FIELD_CACHE, does not use double buffering. The other possible value is AFX_DAO_ENABLE_FIELD_CACHE. Uses double buffering, and you do not have to do extra work to mark fields dirty or Null. For performance and memory reasons, avoid this value unless your binary data is relatively small.

These options are explained further in the article DAO Recordset: Binding Records Dynamically.

Note   You can control whether data is double buffered by default by setting CDaoRecordset::m_bCheckCacheForDirtyFields.


DFX_LongBinary is provided for compatibility with the MFC ODBC classes. The DFX_LongBinary function transfers binary large-object (BLOB) data using class CLongBinary between the field data members of a CDaoRecordset object and the columns of a record on the data source. Data is mapped between type DAO_BYTES in DAO and type CLongBinary in the recordset.
