You can deal with database easily by using Model.

Create Model

  Minimum Model is as follows. Create file named 「table name.php」. Class name is ucfirst( strtolower( table name ) ).

class CUser extends CModel

Regist Model

  You can regist model in function 'config_models' called by framework.

function config_database( &$db )
    $db->add( "", "localhost", "user", "password", "dbname" );
    $db->add( "special", "", "user", "password", "dbname" );
    $db->add( "pg", "localhost", "user", "password", "dbname", DBKIND_PGSQL, '5432' );
function config_models( &$controller )
    $controller->AddModel( "user.php" );
    $controller->AddModel( "specialuser.php", "special" );
    $controller->AddModel( "test.php", "pg" );

How to use

You can call Model from Controller. Way to call is next two ways. First way is set up when the name is not competed with other variable name.



  • array find( [ string condition [, string order [, string limit [, string group ]]] )

You get elements specified by argument from table.

$results = $c->user->find( "id=$id", "age DESC" );

  • array findone( [ string condition [, string order ]] )

You get first element from elements found by function 'find'.

$result = $c->user->findone( "id=$id", "age DESC" );

  • array findquery( string query [, string condition [, string order [, string group ] )

Use this when you want to find related data. 'query' is message before 'WHERE'.

$query = "SELECT user.*, FROM user"
       . " LEFT JOIN";
$results = $c->user->findquery( $query, "age=24", "age DESC" );

  • int getcount( [ string condition [, string limit ]] )

You get elements count found.

$count = $c->user->getcount( "id=$id", "10" );

  • bool insert( array datas )

Insert data to table by array. Array is consisted as follows ( $array[key] = value ).

$data["name"] = $name;
$data["email"] = $email;
$c->user->insert( $data );

  • bool update( array datas )

You can update data by array. Array is same as one of 'insert'. But specify key 'id' ( which is default key. You can specify id name by Model's member variable $id. ). Update condition will become "id='$id'". Framework terminate function if id key is not exist in array.

$data["id"] = $id;
$data["name"] = $name;
$data["email"] = $email;
$c->user->update( $data );

  • bool updateby( array datas, string condition )

You can specify condition when update.

$data["name"] = $name;
$data["email"] = $email;
$c->user->updateby( $data, "age=25" );

  • bool del( string condition )

Delete record by condition.

$c->user->del( "age=25" );

  • result query( string query )

You can specify query.

  • int GetLastInsertId()

Get last inserted ID. ( only mysql )

  • int GetAffectedRows()

Get affected rows num.

  • string GetLastError()

Get last error.

  • string to_datetime( int time )

Change UNIX timestamp to DATETIME format.
(ex.:2006-09-19 12:24:46)

  • string escape( string str )

Escape string for query.

  • bool validate( array datas )
  • string validatemsg( array datas )
  • array GetValidateError()

These are function for validation. See manual of validation to know detail.


  • var $id

$id( default is 'id' ) is a primary key used by function 'update' etc.

  • var $name

Model use database connection specifid by $name.

  • var $table

You can specify table name when you don't want to default table name.
