===== SOME EXAMPLES FOR MYSQL_DB CLASS =====

I'll be adding some examples to the class from now on... keep an eye on this file

EXAMPLE 1: Creating a select with mysql_db classes
  NOTE: use an existing database
  <? require("mysql_conn.php") ; ?>
  <? require("mysql_recordset.php") ; ?>
  <?
  // FUNCTION THAT CREATES A SELECT FROM $table USING $valuefld AS SOURCE
  // FOR VALUES AND $optionfld FOR OPTION NAMES - REQUIRES NAME OF A VALID
  // MYSQL_CONN OBJECT AS STRING
	
  function create_select($connobj,$table,$selected,$name,$valuefld,$optionfld) {	
    echo  "<SELECT NAME=\"" . $name . "\">";
    $sql = "SELECT " . $valuefld . "," . $optionfld . " FROM " . $table ;
    echo $sql ;
    $rs = new mysql_recordset($connobj,$sql) ;
    if ($rs->query()) {	  
      while (!$rs->movenext()) {
        echo "<OPTION value=\"" . $rs->value($valuefld) . "\"" ;
        if ($rs->value($valuefld)==$selected) {
          echo " SELECTED" ;		
          }
        echo ">" . $rs->value($optionfld) ;
        }
      }
    echo "</select>" ;
    }
	
  $conn = new mysql_conn("localhost","user","pwd","database") ;
  $conn->init() ;
  
  create_select("conn","tblname",1,"myselect","id","name") ;
  
  $conn->destroy() ;
  ?>
	
  SOME EXPLANATION...

  I divided the example in 2 to better focus on each part as well as to provide
  an usable function for creating selects ;)
	
  First we need a new connection object thus we call the constructor (mysql_conn())
  providing server, user, password and database as params.
	
  When done we ask for a select... let's examine the function... we construct 
  the SQL command normally and use it to create a recordset (that is a database
  result containing the data we just asked)  $recordset->query() method returns 
  recordcount thus allowing for 0 matches on the database on the if clause.
	
  Remember $recordset->query() does not initialize the result pointer to the first
  row (fetching the first row in fact), this is done by $recordset->movenext() that 
  returns a false (0) when no more rows can be fetched allowing for a while condition
  directly.
	
  The rest is quite simple, general echoing for the results... $recordset->value RETURNS 
  the value for the field while $recordset->field() actually echoes this value on screen 
  have it in mind if you get weird echoes while executing your script.
