MongoDBDataSource.FillAsync(String[]) Method

Asynchronously loads data from a MongoDB instance to MongoDBDataSource. Allows you to specify the queries that should be executed in order to load the data.

Namespace: DevExpress.DataAccess.MongoDB

Assembly: DevExpress.DataAccess.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.DataAccess


public Task FillAsync(
    string[] queriesToFill


Name Type Description
queriesToFill String[]

An array of query names. These queries are executed in order to load data from a MongoDB instance.


Type Description

A task that loads data from a MongoDB instance to the data source.


A MongoDB data source stores queries to database collections of a MongoDB instance. Call the FillAsync method to execute these queries and asynchronously load data from the instance to the data source. You can also use the Fill() method if you need to load the data in the application’s main thread.


The example below demonstrates how to use the MongoDBDataSource class to bind an application or component to a MongoDB instance. The example uses the MongoDBCustomConnectionParameters class to specify a connection string to the MongoDB instance and the MongoDBQuery class to specify data queries to the Categories and Products collections of the Northwind database. The example shows how to use the FillAsync method to asynchronously populate the data source with data from the instance.

using DevExpress.DataAccess;
using DevExpress.DataAccess.ConnectionParameters;
using DevExpress.DataAccess.MongoDB;
using DevExpress.DataAccess.ObjectBinding;
using System.Threading;
// ...
// Create an object that stores a MongoDB connection string.
var connectionParameters = new MongoDBCustomConnectionParameters() {
    ConnectionString = "mongodb://localhost:27017"

// Specify queries to MongoDB database collections.
var queryCategories = new MongoDBQuery() {
    DatabaseName = "Northwind",
    CollectionName = "Categories",

var queryProducts = new MongoDBQuery() {
    DatabaseName = "Northwind",
    CollectionName = "Products",

// Create a MongoDBDataSource object. Assign the created connection
// string and queries to the data source's ConnectionParameters and
// Queries properties.
var mongoDBDataSource = new MongoDBDataSource() {
    ConnectionParameters = connectionParameters,
    Queries = { queryProducts, queryCategories },

// Specify an array of query names. Only the queries with these
// names are executed after the FillAsync method is called.
var queriesToFill = new[] { "Products" };

// Call the data source's FillAsync method to execute queries
// and asynchronously load data from the MongoDB instance.
await mongoDBDataSource.FillAsync(queriesToFill);

// Use the created object as a data source in your application or component.
