DataBind Google Ads Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ads 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.

Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. To access Google APIs on behalf on individual users, you can use the embedded credentials or you can register your own OAuth app.

OAuth also enables you to use a service account to connect on behalf of users in a Google Apps domain. To authenticate with a service account, you will need to register an application to obtain the OAuth JWT values.

In addition to the OAuth values, specify the DeveloperToken and ClientCustomerId.

See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Google Ads data. The GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter 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 (GoogleAdWordsConnection connection = new GoogleAdWordsConnection( "DeveloperToken=MyDeveloperToken;ClientCustomerId=MyClientCustomerId;")) { GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter dataAdapter = new GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter( "SELECT Device, Clicks FROM CampaignPerformance", 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[] { "Clicks" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Device"; 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 Google Ads data. The GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter 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 (GoogleAdWordsConnection connection = new GoogleAdWordsConnection( "DeveloperToken=MyDeveloperToken;ClientCustomerId=MyClientCustomerId;")) { GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter1 = new GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter("SELECT Device, Clicks FROM CampaignPerformance", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); GoogleAdWordsDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Clicks" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Device"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
