DataBind Shopify Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Shopify 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.

To make use of all the features of the data provider, provide the AppId, Password, and ShopUrl connection properties.

To obtain these values, see the Getting Started section in the help documentation to register the data provider as an application with Shopify.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Shopify data. The ShopifyDataAdapter 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 (ShopifyConnection connection = new ShopifyConnection( "AppId=MyAppId;Password=MyPassword;ShopUrl=https://yourshopname.myshopify.com;")) { ShopifyDataAdapter dataAdapter = new ShopifyDataAdapter( "SELECT FirstName, Id FROM Customers", 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[] { "Id" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "FirstName"; 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 Shopify data. The ShopifyDataAdapter 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 (ShopifyConnection connection = new ShopifyConnection( "AppId=MyAppId;Password=MyPassword;ShopUrl=https://yourshopname.myshopify.com;")) { ShopifyDataAdapter ShopifyDataAdapter1 = new ShopifyDataAdapter("SELECT FirstName, Id FROM Customers", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); ShopifyDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Id" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "FirstName"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
