Setting up a table and database components

Previous  Top  Next


The following steps are general instructions for setting up a table component at design time. There may be additional steps you need to tailor a table's properties to the requirements of your application. If you need in-memory table you should not create a database component, just set InMemory property to true.

To create a database component,
1.Place TACRDatabase component from the Accuracer page of the Component palette in a data module or on a form, and set its DatabaseName property to a unique value appropriate to your application.  
2.Set DatabaseFileName property to the path to the database file. You can use OpenDialog if you double click on this property in Object Inspector.  

To create a table component,
1.   If you need an in-memory table set InMemory property to True, otherwise set DatabaseName property to specify which TACRDatabase component will be used for connecting to the database file.  
2.Place TACRTable component from the Accuracer page of the Component palette in a data module or on a form, and set its Name property to a unique value appropriate to your application.  
3.   Set the TableName property to the name of the table in the database.  

To access the data encapsulated by a table component,
1.   Place a data source component from the Data Access page of the Component palette in the data module or form, and set its DataSet property to the name of the table component.  
2.   Place a data-aware control, such as TDBGrid, on a form, and set the control's DataSource property to the name of the data source component placed in the previous step.  
3.   Set Connected property of TACRDatabase component to True if you use table from the database file. Skip this step if you use in-memory table.  
4.Set the Active property of the table component to True.
