Mastering TClientDataSet Part 1

Producing data-aware applications

   Watch Promo

In this course we begin our journey to produce data-aware applications. Before we can do this we need to understand how datasets work. Probably the most common dataset is TClientDataSet which is used extensively in all sorts of data-aware applications, making knowledge of it essential in building modern Delphi applications. In part 1 we take a close look at many of its properties and methods and using its abilities to load and save data to either a xml file or binary packet. Examples are done using the VCL and you should be able to follow along even with very old versions of Delphi.

Length 2 hours.

I have been programming in Delphi since 1999, primarily building and maintaining applications for the real estate, banking and legal industries here in New Zealand, in these roles I have also used other technologies such a C#, Ruby on Rails, Android/Java, but Delphi is my favorite environment. I have presented at numerous online CodeRage conferences, these conferences last for an entire week with thousands of participants (the replays for all of my presentations are available on this site), and I was an international guest speaker at ADUG in 2013. Most of my videos also appear on YouTube, for which I have over a million views, and over five thousand subscribers.

In 2012 Embarcadero invited me to join a select group of Delphi experts from around the world to form the Embarcadero MVP program, to which fewer than 100 people worldwide have been admitted (I'm the only one from New Zealand).

I also play guitar, invest in real estate, regularly work out at the gym, and of course maintain the courses.
