Configure Data Adapter

Delphi 8 for .NET provides a Configure Data Adapter designer which lets you configure SQL statements or stored procedures that are invoked to read or write to a database. Data Adapters are an integral part of the ADO.NET managed providers, which are a set of objects used to communicate between a data source and a dataset. Essentially, Adapters are used to exchange data between a data source and a dataset. This means reading data from a database into a dataset, and then writing changed data from the dataset back to the database. A Data Adapter can move data between any source and a dataset. Display this dialog by dropping a BdpDataAdapter component from the Tool Palette onto the form. Click the component designer verb at the bottom of the Object Inspector.

To populate the Tables and Column list boxes with items and build SQL statements, you must have defined a live BdpConnection. Otherwise, data will not be retrieved.
