Introduction #

Although using PDODataSource can connect to MySQL. However if for some reasons, you do not have the PDO Driver, you may use the old traditional connection to MySQL using MySQLDataSource

Settings #

classstringMust set to '\koolreport\datasources\MySQLDataSource'
connectionobjectSet the connection object
hoststringHost of database
usernamestringYour login username
passwordstringYour password
dbnamestringDatabase name

If connection is set to an existed connection, that connection object will be used.

Otherwise, KoolReport will create a new or use a previously own-created connection object of the same setting.

Methods #

query(string $str_query)MySQLDataSourceThis method is used in report's setup() function. It will help to setup query string which will be executed when report is run.
params(array $params)MySQLDataSourceThis method is used to set list of parameters for query statement

Example #

class MyReport extends \koolreport\KoolReport
    public function settings()
        return array(
                    'host' => 'localhost',
                    'username' => 'root',
                    'password' => '',
                    'dbname' => 'automaker',
                    'charset' => 'utf8',  
                    'class' => "\koolreport\datasources\MySQLDataSource"  
    public function setup()
        ->query("SELECT * FROM tblPurchase where status=:status")

In above example, we query all data from table tblPurchase of "automaker". The query result will be piped through many processes in between until it reaches the final data store called "purchase_summary".
