Using sample Paradox file from samples: C:Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\Samples\Data
2. Create the ODBC connection for employee.db paradox database:
3. Using RAD Studio, Delphi or C++ Builder 10.2 Tokyo, create a New Multi-Device Application (Blank Application).
4. Drop TFDConnection on the form. Double-click the TFDConnection to open the FireDAC Connection Editor:
5. Select ODBC as the Driver ID. Set the Database property to the folder containing your Paradox files. Here we are using the RAD Studio sample data folder: C:Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\Samples\Data
6. Select the ODBCDriver you are using, and the DataSource you created:
7. On the Multi-Device Form add a FDTable component.
8. Using the Object Inspector, set TableName property of FDTable to your Paradox table:
9. Add a TStringGrid to your Multi-Device form:
10. Right click on the TString Grid and select Bind Visually...
11. Using the LiveBindings Designer, bind the FDTable to the StringGrid:
12. To see Design Time data on the StringGrid, using the Object Inspector for the TFDTable, set the Active proper = True.
Congratulations! This is how you can use FireDAC and the FireDAC ODBC bridge driver and keep your Paradox and/or dBase files with the newer versions of RAD Studio, Delphi and/or C++ Builder!
