The Code Explained

Here we explain what each of the functions in the sample program does. Below that we list some of the WinPure API methods used in the program. At the top of each section is a link to the relevant API in the API Reference documentation.

Sample Program Explained

The TestApiConsole application is designed to illustrate most of the WinPure functions:

  • text cleansing
  • data matching
  • searching
  • etc.

Main

Main calls the functions listed below:

Each functions uses GetTestData(...) to read the data from the SQLite database. Then it sets up parameters with functions like GetCleanSettingsForTable1() or GetCompaniesMatchParameter() etc.

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            _api = new WinPureApi();
            var registrationCode = _api.GetRegistrationCode();
            Console.WriteLine($"You have to provide that code {registrationCode} to WinPure to get your license key");
            //uncomment for API registration
            //var res = _api.Register("DEMO");
            //if (res == Licensing.Enums.LicenseState.Valid)
            //{
            //    Console.WriteLine("You API is registered");
            //}
            var cancellationToken = new CancellationToken();

            try
            {
                TestCleansingTable1(cancellationToken);
                TestCleansingTable2(cancellationToken);
                //TestOfflineAddressVerification(cancellationToken);
                TestMatchingCompanies(cancellationToken);
                TestSearchCompanies(cancellationToken);
                TestMatchingCompaniesBetweenTwoTables(cancellationToken);
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine($"{e.Message} {e.InnerException?.Message}");
            }

            Console.ReadLine();
        }

TestCleansingTable1

Demonstrate cleaning tables with different options.

private static void TestCleansingTable1(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
        {
            var testData = GetTestData("Table1");

            var cleanSettings = GetCleanSettingsForTable1();

            var statistic = _api.CalculateStatistic(testData, cancellationToken);
            Console.WriteLine("Statistic ready");
            _api.CleanTable(testData, cleanSettings, cancellationToken);
            Console.WriteLine("Cleansing complete");
        }

TestCleansingTable2

Second text cleaning example, using different options.

private static void TestCleansingTable2(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
        {
            var testData = GetTestData("Table2");

            var cleanSettings = GetCleanSettingsForTable2();

            var statistic = _api.CalculateStatistic(testData, cancellationToken);
            Console.WriteLine("Statistic ready");
            _api.CleanTable(testData, cleanSettings, cancellationToken);
            Console.WriteLine("Cleansing complete");
        }

TestOfflineAddressVerification

This is commented out. If you want to test it ask us for the address verification address database..

This demonstrates how to prepare parameters for the address verification and call the address verification API. It demonstrates offline address verification against a local database.

private static void TestOfflineAddressVerification(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
        {
            var testData = GetTestData("Table3");
            var settings = new UsAddressVerificationSettings()
            {
                Verification = true,
                GeoTag = true,
                IsOnlineVerification = false,
                AddressColumns = new List<string> { "Address1", "Address2" },
                PostalCodeColumns = new List<string> { "ZIP" },
                LocalityColumns = new List<string> { "Address3" },
                StateColumns = new List<string> { "State" },
                Country = "USA",
                PathToDb = "provide here path to offline address verification database"
            };

            var addressReport = _api.VerifyUsAddresses(testData, settings, cancellationToken);
            if (addressReport != null)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(
                    $"Total original rows {testData.Rows.Count}, Processed time {addressReport.VerifyTime.ToString("g")}, Verifiyed rows {addressReport.CommonData.AddressSuccess}, used credits {addressReport.UsedCredits}");
            }
        }

TestMatchingCompanies

Match table by field Company name. Demonstrate finding duplicates. Parameters are set inside the GetCompaniesMatchParameter() method

Here is the code:

private static void TestMatchingCompanies(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
        {
            var TableName = "Table1";
            var testData = GetTestData(TableName);

            var (matchParameter, matchTables, fields) = GetCompaniesMatchParameter(testData, TableName);

            var result = _api.MatchData(new List<TableParameter> { matchTables }, matchParameter, fields, cancellationToken);
            Console.WriteLine("Match complete");
        }

TestSearchCompanies

Fuzzy search. In the given example, it searches by Company Name.

Here is the code:

private static void TestSearchCompanies(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
        {
            var TableName = "Table1";
            var testData = GetTestData(TableName);

            var (searchParameter, searchTable) = GetCompaniesSearchParameter(testData, TableName, "007 Lacksmith 24", "Company Name");

            var result = _api.SearchData( searchTable , searchParameter, cancellationToken);
            Console.WriteLine("Search complete");
        }

TestMatchingCompaniesBetweenTwoTables

Demonstrates matching data between multiple tables.

Matching between tables simply means that you create a union data from tables together based on the FieldMap parameter. Then it finds duplicates inside the union.

Here is the code:

private static void TestMatchingCompaniesBetweenTwoTables(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
        {
            var tableName1 = "Table1";
            var tableData1 = GetTestData(tableName1);
            var tableName2 = "Table2";
            var tableData2 = GetTestData(tableName2);

            var (matchParameter, matchTables, fields) = GetMatchingCompaniesBetweenTwoTablesParameter(tableData1, tableName1, tableData2, tableName2);


            var result = _api.MatchData(matchTables, matchParameter, fields, cancellationToken);

            Console.WriteLine("Match complete");
        }

                Level = 0.9,
                Weight = 1
            };
