DataBind SAP Business One Data to the DevExpress Data Grid

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

The CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP Business One 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.

To authenticate to SAP Business One you must provide the Userand Passwordproperties.

To connect to data, specify Url. This is your SAP Business One Service Layer root URL.

Windows Forms Controls

The code below shows how to populate a DevExpress chart with SAP Business One data. The SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter 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 (SAPBusinessOneConnection connection = new SAPBusinessOneConnection( "Url=http://localhost:50000/b1s/v1;User=username;Password=password;CompanyDB=dbname;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter dataAdapter = new SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter( "SELECT DocEntry, DocType 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[] { "DocType" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = DevExpress.XtraCharts.ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "DocEntry"; 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 SAP Business One data. The SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter 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 (SAPBusinessOneConnection connection = new SAPBusinessOneConnection( "Url=http://localhost:50000/b1s/v1;User=username;Password=password;CompanyDB=dbname;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH")) { SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter1 = new SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter("SELECT DocEntry, DocType FROM Orders", connection); DataTable table = new DataTable(); SAPBusinessOneDataAdapter1.Fill(table); DevExpress.XtraCharts.Series series = new Series("Series1", ViewType.Bar); WebChartControl1.Series.Add(series); series.DataSource = table; series.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "DocType" }); series.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Qualitative; series.ArgumentDataMember = "DocEntry"; series.ValueScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical; ((DevExpress.XtraCharts.SideBySideBarSeriesView)series.View).ColorEach = true; }
