FireDAC Components for Act-On

Build 20.0.7654

Creating VCL Applications

The following sections show how to use the Form Designer to create a simple VCL Forms application that shows the basic FireDAC objects needed to connect to Act-On from any application. See Writing Data Access Code to work with these FireDAC components from code.

The following example populates a TDBGrid control.

  1. After Establishing a Connection and creating the TFDPhysActOnDriverLink and TFDConnection objects, drop a TFDQuery object onto the form and set the properties below:

    Connection Set this property to the TFDConnection object, if this object is not already specified.
    SQL Click the button in the SQL property and enter a query.
    Active Set this property to true. This executes the SQL query to Act-On.

  2. Drop a TDataSource object onto the form and set the following property:

    DataSet In the menu for this property, select the name of the TFDQuery object.

  3. Drop a TDBGrid control onto the form and set the following property:

    DataSource Select the name of the TDataSource.

  4. Drop a TFDGUIxWaitCursor onto the form. This is required to avoid a run-time error.
