check if record was added successfully using mysqli extention

i have bought the mysqli plugin. i have create a form and insert to database works. In my database i made username unique so no duplicated can be added. how do i show error if duplicate record is found. currently it submits and the database ignores the submit if there is a duplicate? i assume i have to use pdo catch exception?

Do you have data-bridge? That would allow you to add actual unique record validation with the server validations server behavior. Otherwise I'd probably do a manual check by adding a recordset to see if the record already exists before doing the insert and using that to display an error message when applicable.
