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

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

Connecting to HubSpot Data Using Data Explorer

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

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

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

    HubSpot uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app.

    See the Getting Started chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

  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: Prospects) onto the form.

  7. Select the ProspectsTable 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 Prospects data.
