Twilio ADO.NET Provider

Complete read-write access to Twilio enables developers to search (Accounts, Applications, Messages, Recordings, etc.), update items, edit customers, and more, from any .NET application.



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

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 Twilio in PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for Twilio 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:

    AccountSid=MyAccountSid;AuthToken=MyAuthToken;

    Use the AccountSid and AuthToken connection properties to access data from your account. You obtain your live credentials on your Twilio account dashboard. Click Account -> Account Settings to obtain your test credentials.

  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=Sid}" Header="Sid" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=To}" Header="To" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Twilio 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.Twilio.TwilioConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.Twilio.TwilioConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.Twilio.TwilioCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.Twilio.TwilioCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.Twilio.TwilioDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.Twilio.TwilioDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

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