SQLite3: "Many to Many" relationship updates

The TSQLRecordMany implementation has been updated.
TSQLRecordMany now uses TSQLRecord properties, and not TRecordReference any more.
It will result in a more easy table definition, and perhaps a more "standard" table data (IDs are stored, not obscure TRecordReference values).
See http://synopse.info/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=870#p870

New TSQLRecordMany.FillManyFromDest() and TSQLRecordMany.DestGetJoined() methods have been added, to make real world apps easier.

Some dedicated TSQLRecord.FillPrepare() and TSQLRecord.CreateAndFillPrepare() methods have been created, which may be handy if the purpose of to loop through a set of records.

Re: SQLite3: "Many to Many" relationship updates

It seems that TSQLRecordMany.FillMany and TSQLRecordMany.DestGetJoined provide rather similar functionality: retrieving dest items related to certain source item. Could you help to comment the difference between them ? For example, what are the different situations where either FillMany or DestGetJoined fits better ?  yikes

After playing around a bit, now the difference becomes more clear to me... Sorry for the trouble! big_smile

  // Can be created directly

  try
    // How to get Dest IDs
    // tasks.DestGet(globalClient, fIds); // Does not work
    tasks.DestGet(globalClient, ACustomer.ID, fIds); // Works
    // ACustomer.Tasks.DestGet(globalClient, ACustomer.ID, fIds); // Original
    task:= TSQLTask.CreateAndFillPrepare(globalClient, TInt64DynArray(fIds));
    AList.BeginUpdate();
    AList.Clear();
