Performing a daily backup of the IBExpert User Database

The following example demonstrates the usage of ibec_reg_xxx functions to perform a daily backup of the IBExpert User Database:

     execute ibeblock
     as
     begin
       CurrentDate = ibec_Date();

       reg = ibec_reg_Open(__HKEY_CURRENT_USER, 0);
       try
         if (ibec_reg_OpenKey(reg, 'Software\HK Software\IBExpert\CurrentData', FALSE)) then
         begin
           try
             UDBLastBackupDate = ibec_reg_ReadDate(reg, 'UDBLastBackupDate');
             if (UDBLastBackupDate = CurrentDate) then
               Exit;
           except
           end;
           UDBConnectString = ibec_reg_ReadString(reg, 'UDBConnectString');
           UDBClientLib = ibec_reg_ReadString(reg, 'UDBClientLib');
           UDBUserName = ibec_reg_ReadString(reg, 'UDBUserName');
           UDBPassword = ibec_reg_ReadString(reg, 'UDBPassword');
         end
       finally
         ibec_reg_Close(reg);
       end;

       if ((UDBConnectString is null) or (UDBConnectString = )) then
         Exit;

       ibec_Progress('Starting backup of IBExpert User Database...');
       BackupDir = 'D:\Backups\IBExpert User Database\';
       ibec_ForceDirectories(BackupDir);

       ibec_DecodeDate?(CurrentDate, iYear, iMonth, iDay);
       BackupFileName = BackupDir || iDay || ' || iMonth || ' || iYear || '.fbk';

       res = ibec_BackupDatabase(UDBConnectString, BackupFileName,
                                'ClientLib=' || UDBClientLib || '; Password=' ||
                                    UDBPassword || '; User=' || UDBUserName,
                                null);

       if (ibec_FileExists(BackupFileName)) then
       begin
         ibec_Progress('Compressing ' || BackupFileName || '...');
         res = ibec_Exec('"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\rar.exe" a "' || BackupFileName || '.rar" "' ||
                         BackupFileName || '" -m5 -ri1', , null);
         if (res = 0) then
           ibec_DeleteFile(BackupFileName);
       end

       if (res = 0) then
       begin
         reg = ibec_reg_Open(__HKEY_CURRENT_USER, 0);
         try
           if (ibec_reg_OpenKey(reg, 'Software\HK Software\IBExpert\CurrentData', FALSE)) then
             ibec_reg_WriteDate(reg, 'UDBLastBackupDate', CurrentDate);
         finally
           ibec_reg_Close(reg);
         end;
       end
     end
