Viewing SurveyMonkey Data in RAD Studio Data Explorer

How to view SurveyMonkey data in RAD Studio Data Explorer using the CData FireDAC Components for SurveyMonkey.

Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for SurveyMonkey, you gain access to live SurveyMonkey data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update SurveyMonkey data. This article will walk through connecting to SurveyMonkey using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to SurveyMonkey Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying SurveyMonkey data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for SurveyMonkey and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData SurveyMonkey Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    SurveyMonkey uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a guide.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: MySurvey_Responses) onto the form.

  7. Select the MySurvey_ResponsesTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the MySurvey_Responses data.
