DataBind Dynamics 365 Sales Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

Use the CData ADO.NET Provider for Dynamics 365 Sales with the DevExpress Windows Forms and Web controls to provide Dynamics 365 Sales data to a chart.

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Dynamics 365 Sales 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.

Dynamics 365 uses the OAuth authentication standard. See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a guide to completing the process.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Dynamics 365 Sales data. The D365SalesDataAdapter 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 (D365SalesConnection connection = new D365SalesConnection( "OrganizationUrl=https://myaccount.crm.dynamics.com/;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { D365SalesDataAdapter dataAdapter = new D365SalesDataAdapter( "SELECT accountid, Name FROM Accounts", 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[] { "Name" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "accountid"; 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 Dynamics 365 Sales data. The D365SalesDataAdapter 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 (D365SalesConnection connection = new D365SalesConnection( "OrganizationUrl=https://myaccount.crm.dynamics.com/;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { D365SalesDataAdapter D365SalesDataAdapter1 = new D365SalesDataAdapter("SELECT accountid, Name FROM Accounts", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); D365SalesDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Name" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "accountid"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
