Grey: "We're a two-person company, it's just me an my wife. I'm the technical guru, and she handles the business operations. I have to know a lot about MySQL, but that's much too technical for her. I have frequently had to setup CGI scripts (I code in Perl) so she can manage some of our tables (suppliers, manufacturers, etc).

I discovered PHP Generator a couple of days ago, tried the free version,and within a few hours I had purchased the Pro version (as well as SQL Maestro for MySQL).

Today I am completing the conversion of the last of my custom table managers to PHP Generator. This is eliminating several thousand lines of code that I don't have to support any more!

Thanks for this fantastic product".

Ran / Cole: "We bought the tool last week and want to say how much we love it. We've found it not only powerful, but very user friendly. We have used the tool to create an interface that manages our MySQL DB for different types of users".

Data Query

This query returns data to be used by the chart. The retrieved data must contain exactly one column to specify labels along the major axis of the chart (domain column) and one or more columns to specify series data to render in the chart (data columns).

 

To allow a chart to be sensitive to grid data, refer to the chart's parent page query using the %source% placeholder.

 

Example 1

Assume we have the following table:

 

CREATE TABLE usd_exchange_rate (

  id             int NOT NULL,

  exchange_date  date,

  eur_rate       decimal(10,4),

  gbp_rate       decimal(10,4),

  chf_rate       decimal(10,4),

  cad_rate       decimal(10,4),

  aud_rate       decimal(10,4),

  /* Keys */

  PRIMARY KEY (id)

);

 

Our goal is to create a chart that displays the USD course. As data are already grouped, our query is very simple:

 

%source%

 

Then we should specify the exchange_rate column as domain column and all *_rate columns as data columns.

 

Example 2

Suppose we have two tables department and employee defined as follows:

 

CREATE TABLE department (

  id    int NOT NULL,

  name  varchar(100) NOT NULL,

  /* Keys */

  PRIMARY KEY (id)

);

 

CREATE TABLE employee (

  id             int NOT NULL,

  full_name      varchar(100) NOT NULL,

  department_id  int NOT NULL,

  salary         int NOT NULL,

  /* Keys */

  PRIMARY KEY (id),

  /* Foreign keys */

  CONSTRAINT fk_emp_department

    FOREIGN KEY (department_id)

    REFERENCES department(id)

);

 

Our goal is to create a chart representing the total salary by departments on the Department webpage. The following query returns the appropriate data:

 

SELECT 

  d.name as dep_name,

  SUM(e.salary) AS total_salary

FROM

  (%source%) d

  INNER JOIN employee e ON (e.department_id = d.id)

GROUP BY

  d.name

order by 2 desc

 

Then we should specify dep_name as the domain column and total_salary as a data column.
