Icon EngineSignature Property

property EngineSignature: String


Use the EngineSignature property to specify the signature to be used by the engine when accessing or creating tables, backup files, or streams as well as any communications between a remote session and a database server. The default value of the EngineSignature property is "DBISAM_SIG" and should not be changed unless you are sure of the consequences. Using a custom value for the EngineSignature property will prevent any other application that uses DBISAM from accessing any tables, backup files, or streams created with the custom signature, as well as accessing a database server using the custom signature.

Information This property cannot be set while the engine is active and the TDBISAMEngine Active property is True.
