TDAServerDatasetCollection

Overview

The TDAServerDatasetCollection class, which is descended from the TDADatasetCollection collection, represents a collection of specified datasets (or data tables) that is defined in the schema.

You will not usually create instances of this class directly, but define a dataset collection in Schema Modeler or access a collection via the Datasets property of the TDASchema component.

constructor Create (TComponent)    (declared in TDASQLCommandCollection)

Creates a new instance.

constructor Create(aOwner: TComponent)

Parameters:

  • aOwner: Owner
