Codeigniter Little Trick: Shorten Input Form To Database Table

July 4th, 2012 by aditia rahman / No Comments  


In today post I have a little trick using codeigniter for inserting a row fields to database, this trick I found when I have to insert data that have many data fields for example I have 5 table each table have about 20 fields, in codeigniter we have active record class to make it easy when inserting to database. Basic codeigniter active record is

$data = array(
   'title' => 'My title' ,
   'name' => 'My Name' ,
   'date' => 'My date'

$this->db->insert('mytable', $data);
Form code

In the form field name I use the same name on the input fields so I can pass the input fields as array.

<form method="post" action="">
<label>Fields 1</label>
<input type="text" name="fields[fields1]"/>
<label>Fields 2</label>
<input type="text" name="fields[fields2]"/>
<label>Fields 3</label>
<input type="text" name="fields[fields3]"/>
<!-- other field (text, select, textarea, etc) -->
<label>Fields 19</label>
<input type="text" name="fields[fields19]"/>
<label>Fields 20</label>
<input type="text" name="fields[fields20]"/>
<input type="submit" value="submit" />

Codeigniter Layout Library For Autoload Frequently Used Views

May 2nd, 2011 by aditia rahman / 13 Comments  


I came up with idea how to automatically load most used layout in Codeigniter, basically I came from CakePHP that automated all default layout, in this case we can call it views part of MVC, when creating codeingniter application usually I follow the documentation when load some views from controller, something like this code

$data['page_title'] = 'Your title';
$this->load->view('content', $data);

Or the worse before this sometimes I include the header and footer directly on the view file, well these method really wasting time, an make the code on the views not really well organized.

Extjs: Simple User Managament Using Codeigniter

December 9th, 2010 by aditia rahman / 14 Comments  


Hello again this is another post of ExtJS, this post is to showing my little idea how to manage user permission in ExtJS component, In this post I not showing the full source code, just a little part of the code to get the idea how it works, however the complete source code still available on the download link at the end of this post.

This example is a simple user management that user can manipulate other user data and users groups, user need to logged in to the system to do some action, and the feature are:

- Add, Update, Delete Users
- Add, Update, Delete Groups
- Administrator cannot be deleted or updated

Which mean it will take different action button in the application screen, depend on the users groups, what is not handled in this example is user restriction, if a group have granted to modify certain user, it can modify whole user although it is the administrator.

The image is the file structure that I have created on this example, there will be a form and two grid panel in this application, a usual login form with label and textfield, a grid contain user data with the toolbar menu and a grid contain group data.

In the database we need to make a relation between user and groups and here the sql code that I created, for both groups and users table
