Rapidly create and deploy powerful .NET applications that integrate with ActiveCampaign account data including Accounts, Contacts, Deals, and more!

This article demonstrates how to access ActiveCampaign data from Appeon PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for ActiveCampaign.

This article demonstrates using the CData ADO.NET Provider for ActiveCampaign in PowerBuilder, showcasing the ease of use and compatibility of these standards-based controls across various platforms and development technologies that support Microsoft .NET, including Appeon PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for ActiveCampaign to perform reads and writes.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:


    ActiveCampaign supports authenticating with the API Key. To connect to ActiveCampaign, set the following:

    • URL: This can be found in your account on the My Settings page under the Developer tab. For example: https://{yourAccountName}
    • APIKey: This can be found in your account on the Settings page under the Developer tab. Each user in your ActiveCampaign account has their own unique API key.

  2. Add the DataGrid control from the .NET controls.
  3. Configure the columns of the DataGrid control. Below are several columns from the Account table: <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="13,249,12,14" Name="datagrid1" TabIndex="70" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <DataGrid.Columns> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="idColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=LastName}" Header="LastName" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for ActiveCampaign assembly.

Connect the DataGrid

Once the visual elements have been configured, you can use standard ADO.NET objects like Connection, Command, and DataAdapter to populate a DataTable with the results of an SQL query:

System.Data.CData.ActiveCampaign.ActiveCampaignConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.ActiveCampaign.ActiveCampaignConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.ActiveCampaign.ActiveCampaignCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.ActiveCampaign.ActiveCampaignCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.ActiveCampaign.ActiveCampaignDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.ActiveCampaign.ActiveCampaignDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

The code above can be used to bind data from the specified query to the DataGrid.
