data assist multiple record update

data assist multiple record update

I have used the update multiple record server behaviour successfully in the past, but since upgrade to 2.0.6 seem to have created a new page which does not update the data. I have re-created it several times and get the same issue.

Therre are 2 recordsets on the page, both filtered to the same item ItemCatID.

Only one recordset is involved in the muiltiple update and one corresponding table (items).

Any help appreciated.

code on the page is:

<?php require_once('../Connections/mayther.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_DataAssist/WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php"); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
}

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}
}

if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
}

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}
}

Thanks for posting the code, it is helpful. Next time you would like to post with the code of the page it may be better to attach it in a zip archive, this way we can see the line numbers and stuff like that.

In the code you posted I have added some debug statements to the update server behavior. I added a variable that will hold the update sql, then it will print out all of the update statements so we can take a look at them.

Please make a backup of this page and test it with the updated code and let us know what the result is.

Updated Multiple update server behavior:

php:
<?php

// WA DataAssist Multiple Updates
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"// Trigger
{
$the_updates "";
if (!
session_id()) session_start();
$WA_loopedIDField = array("WADA_RepeatID_ItemID");
$WA_connection $mayther;
$WA_table "items";
$WA_redirectURL "admin-change-the-order.php";
$WA_keepQueryString false;
$WA_indexField "ItemID";
$WA_fieldNamesStr "ItemOrder";
$WA_columnTypesStr "none,none,NULL";
$WA_fieldNames explode("|"$WA_fieldNamesStr);
$WA_columns explode("|"$WA_columnTypesStr);
$WA_connectionDB $database_mayther;
$WA_multipleUpdateCounter 0;
mysql_select_db($WA_connectionDB$WA_connection);
while (
WA_AB_checkLoopedFieldsNotBlank($WA_loopedIDField $WA_multipleUpdateCounter)) {
$WA_fieldValuesStr "".WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue("ItemOrderChange" $WA_multipleUpdateCounter) ."";
$WA_fieldValues explode("|"$WA_fieldValuesStr);
$WA_where_fieldValuesStr WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue($WA_loopedIDField[0], $WA_multipleUpdateCounter);
$WA_where_columnTypesStr "none,none,NULL";
$WA_where_comparisonStr "=";
$WA_where_fieldNames explode("|"$WA_indexField);
$WA_where_fieldValues explode("|"$WA_where_fieldValuesStr);
$WA_where_columns explode("|"$WA_where_columnTypesStr);
$WA_where_comparisons explode("|"$WA_where_comparisonStr);
$updateParamsObj WA_AB_generateInsertParams($WA_fieldNames$WA_columns$WA_fieldValues, -1);
$WhereObj WA_AB_generateWhereClause($WA_where_fieldNames$WA_where_columns$WA_where_fieldValues$WA_where_comparisons );
$WA_Sql "UPDATE `" $WA_table "` SET " $updateParamsObj->WA_setValues " WHERE " $WhereObj->sqlWhereClause "";
$the_updates .= "<br/>" $WA_Sql;
$MM_editCmd mysql_query($WA_Sql$WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
$WA_multipleUpdateCounter++;
}
die(
$the_updates);
if (
$WA_redirectURL != "") {
if (
$WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
$WA_redirectURL .= ((strpos($WA_redirectURL'?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
}
header("Location: ".$WA_redirectURL);
}
}
?>

output with modified server behaviour

I added the modified server behaviour to a test page

result was:

UPDATE `items` SET `ItemOrder` = 999 WHERE `ItemID`=27

I had changed 2 values on the page for ItemID 13 and 14

it appears that it did not pick up these items at all

the item with ID 27 was the last one on the list and was already set to 999

additional test

i tried updating the value on the last item to 998 and the new result was applied.

the result was:


UPDATE `items` SET `ItemOrder` = 998 WHERE `ItemID`=27

it would appear that the loop is not occurring for the multiple updates

It seems like the loop might be occurring correctly, but maybe we are just not setting this variable that holds the queries correctly. Try updating this line in the server behavior:

php:
$the_updates .= "<br/>" . $WA_Sql;



Update it to be like this:

php:
$the_updates = $the_updates . "<br/>" . $WA_Sql;



If after making this update and testing the page you have the same result add in this line of code just after setting this update variable like this:

php:
die($WA_Sql);

$MM_editCmd = mysql_query($WA_Sql, $WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());



Please post back with your result.

change test

I applied both lines and tested in sequence.

I had modified 3 items to see the effect, however, in both cases it only picked up the last item in the list.

both produced the same result as before:

UPDATE `items` SET `ItemOrder` = 998 WHERE `ItemID`=27
