Connect to Google Ad Manager Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to access Google Ad Manager data from PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ad Manager.

The CData ADO.NET providers are easy-to-use, standards-based controls that can be used from any platform or development technology that supports Microsoft .NET, including PowerBuilder. This article shows how to use the CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ad Manager in PowerBuilder.

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

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties.

    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.

  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=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ad Manager 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.GoogleAdsManager.GoogleAdsManagerConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.GoogleAdsManager.GoogleAdsManagerConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.GoogleAdsManager.GoogleAdsManagerCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.GoogleAdsManager.GoogleAdsManagerCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.GoogleAdsManager.GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.GoogleAdsManager.GoogleAdsManagerDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

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