Elementary DB Operations with Connector

dhtmlxConnector allows executing some actions against DB.

SQL queries

DBWrapper object can be accessed as:

$connector->sql

Then, it can be used in queries in the following way:

$connector->sql->query("DELETE FROM some_table WHERE ID=1");
//or
$res = $connector->sql->query("SELECT * FROM some_table WHERE ID=1");
$data =  $connector->sql->get_next($res);
//or
$connector->sql->query("INSERT INTO some_table(type) VALUES('simple')");
$id = $connector->sql->get_new_id();

INSERT query

$id = $connector->insert(array(
    "type" => "simple",
    ...
));

Parameters:

  • a hash of values

UPDATE query

$connector->update(array(
    "type_id" => '1'
    "type" => 'simple'
));

Parameters:

  • a hash of values. For a successful result it must contain the identity field.

DELETE query

$connector->delete($id);

Parameters:

  • ID of the record that should be deleted

Creating a new connector

You can create an extra connector object on the fly and use it for DB operations.

$temp = new Connector($db_connection);
$temp->configure("some_table");
 
$temp->insert(array(
    "some1" => "value 1",
    "some2" => "value 2"
));
$temp->delete("2");
