DataBind SuiteCRM Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for SuiteCRM 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.

The User and Password properties must be set to valid SuiteCRM user credentials. Additionally, specify the URL to the SuiteCRM application, for example http://suite.crm.com.

Note that retrieving SuiteCRM metadata can be expensive. It is advised that you store the metadata locally as described in the Caching Metadata section of the data provider help documentation.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with SuiteCRM data. The SuiteCRMDataAdapter 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 (SuiteCRMConnection connection = new SuiteCRMConnection( "URL=http://mySuiteCRM.com;User=myUser;Password=myPassword;")) { SuiteCRMDataAdapter dataAdapter = new SuiteCRMDataAdapter( "SELECT Name, Industry FROM Accounts", 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[] { "Industry" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Name"; 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 SuiteCRM data. The SuiteCRMDataAdapter 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 (SuiteCRMConnection connection = new SuiteCRMConnection( "URL=http://mySuiteCRM.com;User=myUser;Password=myPassword;")) { SuiteCRMDataAdapter SuiteCRMDataAdapter1 = new SuiteCRMDataAdapter("SELECT Name, Industry FROM Accounts", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); SuiteCRMDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Industry" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Name"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
