DataBind SurveyMonkey Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for SurveyMonkey 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.

SurveyMonkey uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a guide.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with SurveyMonkey data. The SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter 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 (SurveyMonkeyConnection connection = new SurveyMonkeyConnection( "OAuthClientId=MyOAuthClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyOAuthClientSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:portNumber")) { SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter dataAdapter = new SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter( "SELECT RespondentId, ChoiceId FROM MySurvey_Responses", 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[] { "ChoiceId" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "RespondentId"; 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 SurveyMonkey data. The SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter 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 (SurveyMonkeyConnection connection = new SurveyMonkeyConnection( "OAuthClientId=MyOAuthClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyOAuthClientSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:portNumber")) { SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter1 = new SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter("SELECT RespondentId, ChoiceId FROM MySurvey_Responses", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); SurveyMonkeyDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "ChoiceId" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "RespondentId"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
