Google BigQuery ADO.NET Provider

Rapidly create and deploy powerful .NET applications that integrate with Google BigQuery data including Tables and Datasets.



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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for BigQuery 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 of 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, you will need to specify the DatasetId and ProjectId. 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 BigQuery data. The GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter 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 (GoogleBigQueryConnection connection = new GoogleBigQueryConnection( "DataSetId=MyDataSetId;ProjectId=MyProjectId;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter dataAdapter = new GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter( "SELECT OrderName, Freight FROM Orders", 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[] { "Freight" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "OrderName"; 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 BigQuery data. The GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter 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 (GoogleBigQueryConnection connection = new GoogleBigQueryConnection( "DataSetId=MyDataSetId;ProjectId=MyProjectId;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter1 = new GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter("SELECT OrderName, Freight FROM Orders", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); GoogleBigQueryDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Freight" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "OrderName"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
