Connect to Tableau CRM Analytics Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to access Tableau CRM Analytics data from Appeon PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Tableau CRM Analytics.

This article demonstrates using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Tableau CRM Analytics 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 Tableau CRM Analytics to perform reads and writes.

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


    Tableau CRM Analytics uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with Tableau CRM Analytics.

    See the Getting Started section of the 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=Name}" Header="Name" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Tableau CRM Analytics 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.TableauCRM.TableauCRMConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.TableauCRM.TableauCRMConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.TableauCRM.TableauCRMCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.TableauCRM.TableauCRMCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.TableauCRM.TableauCRMDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.TableauCRM.TableauCRMDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

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