This example demostrates the generation of a DataSnap client proxy classes unit while excluding specific methods programatically using a DBX connection.

Create this proxy generator project by creating a C++ console application File > New > Other > Delphi Projects > Console Application. Be sure to leave "Use VCL" checked. Copy the code below into the _tmain procedure. Add a DataSnap server project to the group project by right clicking on ProjectGroup1 at the top of the ProjectManager frame and selecting Add New Project. Then select C++ Builer Projects > DataSnap Server >DataSnap Server to start the DataSnap Server Wizard. Use the default setting for the wizard:

  • VCL Forms Appication or Console Application
  • Protocols TCL/IP, Server Method Class
  • TCP/IP Port: 211


To run:

  1. Right click on Project2.exe (DSServer) in the Project Manager window.
  2. Select Run Without Debugging. A small TForm should come up to

indicate that the server is running.

  1. Right click on Project1.exe (DSProxyGenerator) and select Run.
  2. A console window should come up briefly and C:/GeneratedProxy.cpp

should be created.
