Binding to Data

This document provides information on how to bind the Query Builder control to data.

The Query Builder control requires a valid data connection to obtain database schema information as well as to generate the resulting query in a proper SQL dialect.

To specify a data connection to a Query Builder, do the following.

  1. Add an XPO connection string specifying a valid connection to the required database to the project's Web.config file as shown below.

  2. In the Page_Load event handler, pass the name of the added connection string to the Query Builder control's ASPxQueryBuilder.OpenConnection method.

  3. The Query Builder control is now bound to data. You can run your web application and view the result. The database schema will be automatically obtained from the database and reflected by Query Builder's lists of the available data tables.
