convert a mysql function to mysqli

hey there just a quickie (hopefully)

I have the following function that works on an old website and I want to update it to use MySQi

php:
<?php

function CMS($db,$connection,$element) {
  
$basefile basename $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] );
  
mysql_select_db($db$connection);
  
$query_rsCMS "SELECT CMSContent FROM cms WHERE CMSLocale = '$basefile' AND CMSElement = '$element'";
  
$rsCMS mysql_query($query_rsCMS$connection);
  
$row_rsCMS mysql_fetch_assoc($rsCMS);
  
mysql_free_result($rsCMS);
  return 
$row_rsCMS["CMSContent"];
}
?>



and then to use that function:

php:
<h1><?php echo CMS($database_dinkydb$dinkydb,'Header'); ?></h1>


or 

<div><?php echo CMS($database_dinkydb$dinkydb,'Content'); ?></div>




the updated MySQLi version is as follows:

php:
<?php

function CMS($db,$element) {
$rsCMS = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsCMS",$db,1);
$rsCMS->setQuery("SELECT * FROM cms WHERE CMSLocale = '".((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:"")  ."' AND CMSElement = '$element'");
$rsCMS->execute();
return 
$rsCMS->getColumnVal("CMSContent");
}
?>



php:
<h1><?php echo CMS($ecartdb,'Header'); ?></h1>


or

<div><?php echo CMS($ecartdb,'Content'); ?></div>

The trick was the return in the function, like so:

php:
return $rsCMS->getColumnVal("CMSContent");




So with this method of data loading I can have a simple database table made up of
CMSID
CMSLocale
CMSElement
CMSContent

The CMSLocale stores the page,php
The CMSElement could be any reference you like, such as Header, SubHeader, FooterTitle, MainContent, SideContent...or anything

I should really put this into a tutorial, but originally I did have an issue with it that i posted, buy since deleted that as I worked it out :)
