Please run testData.sql against a database and change the example files to point to that database to view the examples.


 

1 CONSTRUCTION


call __Construct($query,$interval) to create the report with the query you want and the number of records on a page

or __Construct($query) with all records on the page

or __Construct($query,"",$order,$direction)
   __Construct($query,$interval,$order,$direction) to order your report by default on a column


$query is the mysql query the class will use to generate your report
$order is the name of a column in the database you want to order by
$direction can be ASC or DESC

 

 

2 ADDING FIELDS TO THE REPORT


2.1 adding a normal field


call

addDisplayField($name,$display,$sizeOfField)

or addDisplayField($name,$display)


$name is the name of the field in the databases and must be in the query you constructed with

$display is the heading of the field displayed to the user

$sizeOfField is the minimum width or the table column for this field


 

2.2 adding a special field


here you can create a field with special attributes, eg. a link field or running javascripts on the field


call

addSpecialDisplayField($name,$display,$text,$sizeOfField=50)

or addSpecialDisplayField($name,$display,$text,$sizeOfField=50)


$name is the name of the field in the database. this is only used for sorting purposes. if the user sorts on this field this field in the database will be used.

$display is the heading of the field displayed to the user

$text this is the special text that will be used as the field, anything in {} will be replaced by a field in the database eg. if name is a field in the database use <a href="javascript:alert('you clicked on {name}')">{name}</a>

$sizeOfField is the minimum width or the table column for this field


 

 

 

3 ENABLING AJAX


This allows the report to refreshes its data, when a link is clicked on the navigation bar, or when sorting on a column, without refreshing the entire page.

(Not recommended for pages that requires search engine friendliness)


call enableAjax($database_host,$database_user,$database_password,$database_name)


the database details is required when data is refreshed

setAjaxLoadingText($text)

getNumberOfResultsPerPageSelector($interval,$maximum)

getNumberOfResultsPerPageSelector gets a link to click to refresh the data according to the above selection
