LiveBindings, new in Delphi and C++Builder XE2, enable you connect any data source to any VCL or FireMonkey user interface or HD or 3D graphic object. LiveBindings give you the power and creative freedom to present data to users in more intuitive and interactive ways. LiveBindings also include expressions giving you incredible power and flexibility to build "dynamically" calculated and updated bindings.
Visualizing Live Data with LiveBindings
Presented by Cary Jensen
LiveBindings, first introduced in RAD Studio XE2, are a mechanism for updating the properties of an object based on an expression. LiveBindings, which are supported in both Delphi and C++Builder, as well as Windows (x86 and x64), OS X (Mac), and iOS (iPhone and iPad) applications, represent a significant new mechanism for creating associations between objects, adding capabilities not previously found in RAD Studio.
Join Delphi expert Cary Jensen in this fun and enlightening look at one of RAD Studio's latest technologies. Learn how LiveBindings provide you valuable alternatives to interfacing your classes in both VCL and FireMonkey applications.
In this Webinar you will:
- Understand basic LiveBinding configuration
- Gain insight into how LiveBindings work
- Examine each of the LiveBinding components
- Learn how to make FireMonkey controls data aware through LiveBindings
- Discover a new perspective on software design
This presentation will also discuss the future of LiveBindings and will include a demonstration of LiveBindings that will change the way you look at object interaction.

Understanding RAD Studio's LiveBindings
This white paper is designed to familiarize you with LiveBindings. You will learn how to link controls in both VCL (Visual Component Library) and FireMonkey applications using LiveBindings. The paper also examines the role of the expression engine, which will include a look at expressions and scopes.
