Connect to Snapchat Ads Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to access Snapchat Ads data from Appeon PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Snapchat Ads.

This article demonstrates using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Snapchat Ads in PowerBuilder, showcasing the ease of use and compatibility of these standards-based controls across various platforms and development technologies that support Microsoft .NET, including Appeon PowerBuilder.

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

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

    You will need to create an OAuth application to connect to Snapchat Ads. See the online Help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Additionally, you can optionally set AccountId to provide a default Account ID (meaning it won't need to be manually provided in the WHERE clause). If the AccountId is not specified, the first account in the Accounts view is used.

  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=AccountId}" Header="AccountId" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Snapchat Ads 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.SnapchatAds.SnapchatAdsConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.SnapchatAds.SnapchatAdsConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.SnapchatAds.SnapchatAdsCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.SnapchatAds.SnapchatAdsCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.SnapchatAds.SnapchatAdsDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.SnapchatAds.SnapchatAdsDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

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