->table() – Get or set the table schema

Synopsis

object $DB_DataObject->table ( array $schema )

Description

Without any arguments, table() returns the table schema that the object deals with. With an array passed as the first argument, it will set the table schema for the current instance of the object.

The default schema is normally stored in the database.ini file described in the Autobuilding section.

Note

This function can not be called statically.

<?php
$person 
= new DataObjects_Person;
print_r($person->table());
//
// array(
//     'id'     =>  1  // == DB_DATAOBJECT_INT
//     'name'   =>  2  // == DB_DATAOBJECT_STR
//     'bday'   =>  6  // == DB_DATAOBJECT_STR + DB_DATAOBJECT_DATE
//     'last'   =>  14 // == DB_DATAOBJECT_STR + DB_DATAOBJECT_DATE + DB_DATAOBJECT_TIME
//     'active' =>  17 // == DB_DATAOBJECT_INT + DB_DATAOBJECT_BOOL
//     'desc'   =>  34 // == DB_DATAOBJECT_STR + DB_DATAOBJECT_TXT

$d = new DB_DataObject;
$d->tableName('person');
$d->table(array(
  
'id'   => DB_DATAOBJECT_INT,
  
'name' => DB_DATAOBJECT_STRING,

$d->keys(array('id'));

$d->id 12;
