Qcodo Query Nodes
are any object table or association table (type tables are excluded), as well as any
column within those tables. QQ Node
classes for your entire data model is generated for you
during the code generation process.
But in addition to this, QQ Nodes
are completely interlinked together, matching the relationships
that you have defined as foreign keys (or virtual foreign keys using a relationships script) in your
To get at a specific QQ Node
, you will need to call QQN::ClassName()
, where "ClassName" is the name of the class
for your table (e.g. "Person"). From there, you can use property getters to get at any column or relationship.
Naming standards for the columns are the same as the naming standards for the public getter/setter properties on the object, itself.
So just as $objPerson->FirstName
will get you the "First Name" property of a Person object,
will refer to the "person.first_name" column in the database.
Naming standards for relationships are the same way. The tokenization of the relationship reflected in a class's
property and method names will also be reflected in the QQ Nodes. So just as $objProject->ManagerPerson
get you a Person object which is the manager of a given project, QQN::Project()->ManagerPerson
refers to the
person table's row where person.id = project.manager_person_id.
And of course, because everything
that is linked together in the database is also linked together in your QQ Nodes
would of course refer to the person.first_name of the person who is the
project manager of that particular row in the project table.
