What is ajaxCRUD?

ajaxCRUDTM is an open-source PHP class which allows you to connect to a mySQL database table and easily perform the necessary CRUD operations (create, read, update, & delete rows). Use this tool to view data in your table, add rows. edit content, and delete rows at the click of a button (and no page reloading due to ajax).

Please explain...

Ever needed to provide easy "admin" access to a database table, but don't have the time/budget to code all the necessary actions you need (inserts, updates, deletes, etc...)? This PHP class allows you (and/or your clients) to get direct access to your data with a few lines of code. Short story: save time!

"Customers" Example:

(try Adding, Editing (clicking on the field), or Deleting a record)

Okay, how did you do that!?

Just a few lines of code:

# include this file at the very top of your script

# the code for the class
include ('ajaxCRUD.class.php');

# this one line of code is how you implement the class
$tblCustomer = new ajaxCRUD("Customer",
                             "tblCustomer", "pkCustomerID");

# don't show the primary key in the table

# my db fields all have prefixes;
# display headers as reasonable titles
$tblCustomer->displayAs("fldFName", "First");
$tblCustomer->displayAs("fldLName", "Last");
$tblCustomer->displayAs("fldPaysBy", "Pays By");
$tblCustomer->displayAs("fldPhone", "Phone");
$tblCustomer->displayAs("fldZip", "Zip");

# define allowable fields for my dropdown fields
# (this can also be done for a pk/fk relationship)
$values = array("Cash", "Credit Card", "Paypal");
$tblCustomer->defineAllowableValues("fldPaysBy", $values);

# add the filter box (above the table)

# add validation to certain fields (via jquery in validation.js)
$tblCustomer->modifyFieldWithClass("fldPhone", "phone");
$tblCustomer->modifyFieldWithClass("fldZip", "zip");

# actually show to the table

DB Table for Demo Above

Here is the table used:

    CREATE TABLE tblCustomer(
    fldFName VARCHAR(40),
    fldLName VARCHAR(40),
    fldPaysBy VARCHAR(20),
    fldPhone VARCHAR(15),
    fldZip VARCHAR(5),

Is it light? Flexible?

4 files! Installs in seconds. The CSS, field validation, and table display is completely customizable.

What is a business/commercial website?

A commercial website is one created for a business, for which purpose is generating revenue or cash flow of any type (and that isn't under a non-profit organization). So if you're selling a product, selling advertisement, selling a service, or just marketing a commercial business, your site is commercial. A company website is also commercial even if it doesn't sell anything, as it's purpose is to front a commercial company.
