DataBind Sage 200 Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

Use the CData ADO.NET Provider for Sage 200 with the DevExpress Windows Forms and Web controls to provide Sage 200 data to a chart.

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Sage 200 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.

  • Schema: Determines which Sage 200 edition you are connecting to. Specify either StandardUK or ProfessionalUK.
  • Subscription Key: Provides access to the APIs that are used to establish a connection. You will first need to log into the Sage 200 API website and subscribe to the API edition that matches your account. You can do so here: https://developer.columbus.sage.com/docs/services/api/uk. Afterwards, the subscription key may be found in your profile after logging into Sage 200.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with Sage 200 data. The Sage200DataAdapter 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 (Sage200Connection connection = new Sage200Connection( "SubscriptionKey=12345;Schema=StandardUK;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { Sage200DataAdapter dataAdapter = new Sage200DataAdapter( "SELECT Id, Code FROM Banks WHERE Code = '12345'", 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[] { "Code" }); 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 Sage 200 data. The Sage200DataAdapter 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 (Sage200Connection connection = new Sage200Connection( "SubscriptionKey=12345;Schema=StandardUK;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { Sage200DataAdapter Sage200DataAdapter1 = new Sage200DataAdapter("SELECT Id, Code FROM Banks WHERE Code = '12345'", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); Sage200DataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Code" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "Id"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
