First, I would thank all the Daniweb team for making this useful site available for us.
I'm developing with mysql database. I always declared the details about the database I use at the top of every form. I mean, the database name,username,password and everything about it. We know this will not be great when I deploy my app to other computers. I would like to know the best way to save these credentials and allow someone to set them after installling the app (like how it is done with other apps). May be saving them to a text (.txt) file?
How do I save the details/variables to a text file?
How do I read/call these variables to my forms?
P.S: I have read this discussion but everything was strange to me!
I will appreciate any help. Also if there is anything I should read online.
