Streak ADO.NET Provider

Rapidly create and deploy powerful .NET applications that integrate with Streak.



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

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 Streak in PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for Streak to retrieve data.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:

    ApiKey=8c84j9b4j54762ce809ej6a782d776j3;

    Use the following steps to generate a new API key for authenticating to Streak.

    1. Navigate to Gmail
    2. Click on the Streak dropdown to the right of the search bar
    3. Select the Integrations button. This will open a window where you can view existing integrations and create new API keys.
    4. Under the Streak API section of integrations, click the button to Create New Key.

  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=UserKey}" Header="UserKey" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Streak 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.Streak.StreakConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.Streak.StreakConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.Streak.StreakCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.Streak.StreakCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.Streak.StreakDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.Streak.StreakDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

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