Viewing Redis Data in RAD Studio Data Explorer

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

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

Connecting to Redis Data Using Data Explorer

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

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

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

    Set the following connection properties to connect to a Redis instance:

    • Server: Set this to the name or address of the server your Redis instance is running on. You can specify the port in Port.
    • Password: Set this to the password used to authenticate with a password-protected Redis instance , using the Redis AUTH command.

    Set UseSSL to negotiate SSL/TLS encryption when you connect.

  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: Customers) onto the form.

  7. Select the CustomersTable 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 Customers data.
