    Just wanted to ask about BLOB support, in order to store and read pictures from a database.

    I cannot see anything in the beta versions, so I assume it is not included yet. Unless I missed something?

    I'm personally only interested in pictures, though perhaps others may wish to store other large data. So looking for the equivalents of FileToBLOB, BytesToBLOB, GetImage and GetBytes in Basic4PPC.

    It does not matter if syntax or method is different under Android. For me, the only important thing is that simple image files stored in the database using other SQLite wrappers can be read on Android and visa-versa (e.g. compatable with B4ppc and varous desktop wrappers).

    This is not urgent yet, but would be interesting to know if it is planned for the production release?

    This is not implemented yet and is indeed in the features list. I believe that it will be added after the first release as an updated library (which doesn't require a new B4A version).

    Thanks, that sounds fine - shouldn't be any timing problem for me.
