DataBind Salesforce Einstein Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Salesforce Einstein 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.

Salesforce Einstein Analytics uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with Salesforce Einstein Analytics.

See the Getting Started section of the CData data provider documentation for an authentication guide.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Salesforce Einstein data. The SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter 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 (SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsConnection connection = new SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsConnection( "OAuthClientId=MyConsumerKey;OAuthClientSecret=MyConsumerSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:portNumber;")) { SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter dataAdapter = new SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter( "SELECT Name, CloseDate FROM Dataset_Opportunity", 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[] { "CloseDate" }); 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 Salesforce Einstein data. The SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter 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 (SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsConnection connection = new SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsConnection( "OAuthClientId=MyConsumerKey;OAuthClientSecret=MyConsumerSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:portNumber;")) { SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter1 = new SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter("SELECT Name, CloseDate FROM Dataset_Opportunity", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); SalesforceEinsteinAnalyticsDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "CloseDate" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Name"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
