DataBind Teradata Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Teradata 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 connect to Teradata, provide authentication information and specify the database server name.

  • User: Set this to the username of a Teradata user.
  • Password: Set this to the password of the Teradata user.
  • DataSource: Specify the Teradata server name, DBC Name, or TDPID.
  • Port: Specify the port the server is running on.
  • Database: Specify the database name. If not specified, the default database is used.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Teradata data. The TeradataDataAdapter 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 (TeradataConnection connection = new TeradataConnection( "User=myuser;Password=mypassword;Server=localhost;Database=mydatabase;")) { TeradataDataAdapter dataAdapter = new TeradataDataAdapter( "SELECT ProductId, ProductName FROM NorthwindProducts WHERE CategoryId = 5", 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[] { "ProductName" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "ProductId"; 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 Teradata data. The TeradataDataAdapter 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 (TeradataConnection connection = new TeradataConnection( "User=myuser;Password=mypassword;Server=localhost;Database=mydatabase;")) { TeradataDataAdapter TeradataDataAdapter1 = new TeradataDataAdapter("SELECT ProductId, ProductName FROM NorthwindProducts WHERE CategoryId = 5", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); TeradataDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "ProductName" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "ProductId"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
