Database objects allow the creation of database rows in a simple, object-oriented manner.
create() method in the database class to create an object for insertion into the database.
<?php /* * ================================ * Create an object of a row in the * books table that will house this * data * ================================ */ $book = Twist::Database() -> records( 'books' ) -> create();
Using the new object, you can set the properties (fields) of the new database row.
<?php /* * ================================ * This is an unbelievable book and * we really strongly recommend you * read it * ================================ */ $book -> set( 'title', 'The Hitchhiker\'s Guide to the Galaxy' ); // DON'T PANIC $book -> set( 'author', 'Douglas Adams' ); $book -> set( 'isbn10', '0330508539' ); $book -> set( 'isbn13', '978-0330508537' );
Once you are ready to commit the new row to the database, simply use the
commit() method to write the changes. The method will return the auto increment field if there is one, else
true if the query was successful.
<?php /* * ================================ * Commit the row to the table - if * successful, then you will either * get returned true or the current * value of the autoincrement field * else you get false returned * ================================ */ $intBookID = $book -> commit(); echo $intBook; // 42
