Tony Broadbent: "Such a great product! I have been struggling to hand craft pages which, with your PHP Generator, I created beautifully within 5 minutes of downloading it".
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".

Using Variables

PHP Generator for MySQL supports:

some environment variables (such as CURRENT_USER_ID, CURRENT_USER_NAME, UNIQUE_ID) in both page and application level server-side events.
custom environment variables to be used in any server-side event of the concrete page (specified within the OnAddEnvironmentVariables event handler) and in any server-side event of any application page (specified within the global OnAddEnvironmentVariables event handler). Such variables can also be used in lookup filter criteria, on data filtering, and as default values.

 

Retrieving the list of available variables

To obtain a complete list of supported variables, turn ON the "Show environment variables" option in the Project Options dialog, re-generate the code and then open any of produced web pages in the browser.

 

 

Accessing variable value

To access the value of a variable, use the GetEnvVar method of the Page class.

 

Example 1

The following example demonstrates how to use variables within the OnBeforeInsertRecord event handler.

 

$rowData['ip_address'] = $page->GetEnvVar('REMOTE_ADDR');

$userName = $page->GetEnvVar('CURRENT_USER_NAME');

if ($userName != 'admin')

    $rowData['changed_by'] = $userName;

 

Within server-side page-level events it is also possible to use $this instead of $page.

 

Example 2

The following code used in the OnAddEnvironmentVariables event handler defines a new variable, which can be used in lookup filter criteria, on data filtering, as a default value, and also in any server-side event.
