CFieldExchange Class

Supports the record field exchange (RFX) and bulk record field exchange (Bulk RFX) routines used by the database classes.

class CFieldExchange


Public Methods




Returns nonzero if the current operation is appropriate for the type of field being updated.


Specifies the type of recordset data member — column or parameter — represented by all following calls to RFX functions until the next call to SetFieldType.


CFieldExchange does not have a base class.

Use this class if you are writing data exchange routines for custom data types or when you are implementing bulk row fetching; otherwise, you will not directly use this class. RFX and Bulk RFX exchanges data between the field data members of your recordset object and the corresponding fields of the current record on the data source.


If you are working with the Data Access Objects (DAO) classes rather than the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) classes, use class CDaoFieldExchange instead. For more information, see the article Overview:Database Programming.

A CFieldExchange object provides the context information needed for record field exchange or bulk record field exchange to take place. CFieldExchange objects support a number of operations, including binding parameters and field data members and setting various flags on the fields of the current record. RFX and Bulk RFX operations are performed on recordset-class data members of types defined by the enum FieldType in CFieldExchange. Possible FieldType values are:

  • CFieldExchange::outputColumn for field data members.

  • CFieldExchange::inputParam or CFieldExchange::param for input parameter data members.

  • CFieldExchange::outputParam for output parameter data members.

  • CFieldExchange::inoutParam for input/output parameter data members.

Most of the class's member functions and data members are provided for writing your own custom RFX routines. You will use SetFieldType frequently. For more information, see the articles Record Field Exchange (RFX) and Recordset (ODBC). For information about bulk row fetching, see the article Recordset: Fetching Records in Bulk (ODBC). For details about the RFX and Bulk RFX global functions, see Record Field Exchange Functions in the MFC Macros and Globals section of this reference.
