DataBind Google Ad Manager Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ad Manager 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 Ads Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can authorize the data provider to access Google Ads Manager as an individual user or with a service account that you create in the Google APIs Console. See the Getting Started section in the data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Google Ad Manager data. The GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter 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 (GoogleAdsManagerConnection connection = new GoogleAdsManagerConnection( "InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter dataAdapter = new GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter( "SELECT Id, Name 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[] { "Name" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Id"; 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 Ad Manager data. The GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter 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 (GoogleAdsManagerConnection connection = new GoogleAdsManagerConnection( "InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter1 = new GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter("SELECT Id, Name FROM Orders", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter1.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 = "Id"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
