Updating disconnected datasets
The Save button is where we'll add the record to the Dataset and to the Database. Here's the code to add, then: Navigate Records( ); btn Cancel. The Data Row object is used to add new rows to a Dataset. To add data to the row, the format is this: row = text First Name. Add( row ); After Add, and in between a pair of round brackets, you type the name of the row you want to add, which was row in our example. Add this rather long line to your method (it should be on one line in your code): System. After a dot, you type the name of a table in your dataset.
Double click your Add New button, and add code to clear the text boxes: text Box1. Text; So after your Data Row variable (row) you need a pair of square brackets. After an equals sign, you type whatever it is you want to add to that Column - the text from text First Name, in our case. The new row will then get added to the end of the Dataset. Here's what your method should look like: And that's it.
Set the following properties for your buttons: Name: btn Add New Text: Add New Name: btn Save Text: Save Enabled: False Name: btn Cancel Text: Cancel Enabled: False The Add New button won't actually add a new record. We need to do this because the textboxes are all blank. The textboxes will go blank, and the first record will disappear. You need to do it this way because the Dataset with its copy of the records is disconnected from the database. We'll be updating the database with these new changes. At the end, in between round brackets, we have the name of our Data Adapter, which was da_1. This property has a method of its own called Update.
We can also disable this button after it has been clicked, and enable the Save and Cancel buttons. Clear(); If the user clicks the Add New button then we want to disable it, and then switch on the Save and Cancel button. The Cancel button also needs to reset all three buttons. To add a record to the Dataset, you need to create a new Row: Data Row row = ds. New Row( ); This creates a new Data Row object that we've called row. This is initialised with the name of a Data Adapter, the Data Adapter we set up earlier in the Class. The Data Set for us is ds, which is the one we passed in to our Update Database method when we set it up.

Describes how to sync real-time data to your connected dataset with CARTO Builder.
When the data is updated from the external resource, the synced data automatically updates to show the changes in CARTO.
Before connecting to an external datasource, you must select the external service from the Connect Dataset options. After your external connectors are enabled and connected, the connect dataset options display a list of your Google Drive, Dropbox or Box files.If you are interested in syncing to real-time data, you will have to re-import the live data again.When you add a new record, you'll want to add it to the Dataset and the underlying database. We'll use this button to clear the textboxes, ready for a new record to be added. Calling Navigate Records will put the record that was erased back into the textboxes. Saving to the Dataset is NOT the same as saving to the database. In order to do an automatic update, you need something called a Command Builder. Now that we have a Command Builder, we can do something with it. The Update method takes the name of a Data Set and a table.In some cases, you may want to sync real-time data to a connected dataset.For example, you can sync to live weather source from a public URL data file or sync to a shared spreadsheet of data that is maintained on your Google Drive or Dropbox.
