Working With BLOBs in Delphi

"BLOB" is an acronym that stands for Large Binary Object, which is a collection of binary data stored in a data field in a database that supports this functionality.

BLOBs are usually used to hold digitized multimedia content such as images, sound clips and videos. However, they can also be used to hold other types of data, such as executables, zip files, code and documents.

This example will show you how you can use Delphi to store BLOBs in a database and restore them to disk on demand.

I wonder weather this example can work all right in ADOTables. I can't get a FieldBlob containing a picture
to be shown into a TImage component.
