Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video CodeIgniter advanced concepts and next steps, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications.
- We've looked at Codelgniter from high-level,…but you might be eager to jump in…and learn more about it.…Maybe you want to find out…if this is the right framework…for your project or maybe you want…to simply learn to start coding in it.…Either way, let's take a deeper look…and discuss where you can learn more.…One thing we didn't look to in detail…is the data layer.…Codelgniter relies on the CI_Model class.…So your class that represents…your database object is going to extend…the CI_Model class.…
This will become the DB object…and its a pseudo query object…that uses the ActiveRecord pattern.…If you wanna get data from your database,…you're gonna write special queries…using the syntax that they provide.…This, for example, is a get but it also allows you…to specify a where clause.…You can write your own methods in here…if you want to or you can use the default ones…that are built into the CI_Model class.…This allows you to create these Smart Objects…that you can use in the controller.…
