select from database view, update table

Questionsselect from database view, update table
Wing asked 5 years ago

my grid is populated by a database view:
$g->select_command = “SELECT * FROM v_rpt_customer_orders”;
The update table is different from the view:
$g->table = “orders”;
the view is a join of the customers and orders table, and the grid shows some customer info and their orders.
All of the columns are read only except for 1 column, item_status. I want to be able to update the item_status in the orders table. How can this be done?

The update should work if you set different sql and table property. All editable columns are posted on update so if you limit them to the table of orders, it will post PK (first column) and editable columns present. The order table should have PK,item_status in it. You can also have on_update callback function to process manually.

That fixed it, Abu. Thanks. Followup question: with the on_update callback, the default save still gets executed before the on_update code gets executed. Is there a way to prevent this?
