DataBind Salesforce Marketing Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

Use the CData ADO.NET Provider for Salesforce Marketing with the DevExpress Windows Forms and Web controls to provide Salesforce Marketing data to a chart.

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Salesforce Marketing implements standard ADO.NET data access components that can be used with third-party controls. The standard ADO.NET process for databinding can be followed to enable bidirectional access to live data from UI controls. In this article we show how to use the CData components to databind to the DevExpress Windows Forms and Web controls; you will databind to a chart that displays current data.

Authenticating to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud APIs

Set the User and Password to your login credentials, or to the credentials for a sandbox user if you are connecting to a sandbox account.

Connecting to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud APIs

By default, the data provider connects to production environments. Set UseSandbox to true to use a Salesforce Marketing Cloud sandbox account.

The default Instance is s7 of the Web Services API; however, if you use a different instance, you can set Instance.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Salesforce Marketing data. The SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter binds to the Series property of the chart control. The Diagram property of the control defines the x- and y-axes as the column names.

using (SFMarketingCloudConnection connection = new SFMarketingCloudConnection( "User=myUser;Password=myPassword;")) { SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter dataAdapter = new SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter( "SELECT Id, Status FROM Subscriber", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); dataAdapter.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series(); chartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Status" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Id"; series.ValueScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Numerical; chartControl1.Legend.Visibility = DevExpress.Utils.DefaultBoolean.False; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }

Web Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress Web control with Salesforce Marketing data. The SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter binds to the Series property of the chart; the Diagram property defines the x- and y-axes as the column names.

using DevExpress.XtraCharts; using (SFMarketingCloudConnection connection = new SFMarketingCloudConnection( "User=myUser;Password=myPassword;")) { SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter1 = new SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter("SELECT Id, Status FROM Subscriber", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); SFMarketingCloudDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Status" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Id"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
