Remote Binding

This article shows how to bind Kendo UI Gantt for PHP to a JSON response.

Important

The following demos are using the sample SQLite database shipped with the Telerik UI for PHP demos (/wrappers/php/sample.db).

Bind to PDO-Returned Arrays

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI AutoComplete for PHP for remote binding.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a data source for the tasks and set its transport and schema.

Example
    <?php
    $taskTransport = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransport();

    // Configure the remote service - a PHP file called 'tasks.php'
    // The query string parameter 'type' specifies the type of CRUD operation

    $taskCreate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportCreate();

    $taskCreate->url('tasks.php?type=create')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $taskRead = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportRead();

    $taskRead->url('tasks.php?type=read')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $taskUpdate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportUpdate();

    $taskUpdate->url('tasks.php?type=update')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $taskDestroy = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportDestroy();

    $taskDestroy->url('tasks.php?type=destroy')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    // Configure the transport. Send all data source parameters as JSON using the parameterMap setting
    $taskTransport->create($taskCreate)
              ->read($taskRead)
              ->update($taskUpdate)
              ->destroy($taskDestroy)
              ->parameterMap('function(data) {
                  return kendo.stringify(data);
              }');

    $taskModel = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModel();

    // Map the 'ID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'id' field
    $idField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('id');
    $idField->type('number')
            ->from('ID')
            ->nullable(true);

    // Map the 'OrderID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'orderId' field
    $orderIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('orderId');
    $orderIdField->from('OrderID')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'ParentID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'parentId' field
    $parentIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('parentId');
    $parentIdField->from('ParentID')
            ->defaultValue(null)
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'Start' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'start' field
    $startField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('start');
    $startField->from('Start')
            ->type('date');

    // Map the 'End' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'end' field
    $endField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('end');
    $endField->from('End')
            ->type('date');

    // Map the 'OrderID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'orderId' field
    $titleField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('title');
    $titleField->from('Title')
            ->defaultValue('')
            ->type('string');

    // Map the 'PercentComplete' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'percentComplete' field
    $percentCompleteField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('percentComplete');
    $percentCompleteField->from('PercentComplete')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'Summary' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'summary' field
    $summaryField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('summary');
    $summaryField->from('Summary')
            ->type('boolean');

    // Map the 'Expanded' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'expanded' field
    $expandedField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('expanded');
    $expandedField->from('Expanded')
            ->defaultValue(true)
            ->type('boolean');

    $taskModel->id('id')
        ->addField($idField)
        ->addField($parentIdField)
        ->addField($orderIdField)
        ->addField($startField)
        ->addField($endField)
        ->addField($titleField)
        ->addField($percentCompleteField)
        ->addField($summaryField)
        ->addField($expandedField);

    // Create the schema
    $taskSchema = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchema();
    $taskSchema ->errors('errors')
            ->model($taskModel);

    // Create a data source
    $tasksDataSource = new \Kendo\Data\DataSource();
    $tasksDataSource->transport($taskTransport)
        ->schema($taskSchema)
        ->batch(true);
    ?>

Step 3 Create a data source for the dependencies and set its transport and schema.

Example
    <?php
    $dependencyTransport = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransport();

    // Configure the remote service - a PHP file called 'dependencies.php'
    // The query string parameter 'type' specifies the type of CRUD operation

    $dependencyCreate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportCreate();

    $dependencyCreate->url('dependencies.php?type=create')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $dependencyRead = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportRead();

    $dependencyRead->url('dependencies.php?type=read')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $dependencyUpdate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportUpdate();

    $dependencyUpdate->url('dependencies.php?type=update')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $dependencyDestroy = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportDestroy();

    $dependencyDestroy->url('dependencies.php?type=destroy')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    // Configure the transport. Send all data source parameters as JSON using the parameterMap setting
    $dependencyTransport->create($dependencyCreate)
              ->read($dependencyRead)
              ->update($dependencyUpdate)
              ->destroy($dependencyDestroy)
              ->parameterMap('function(data) {
                  return kendo.stringify(data);
              }');

    $dependencyModel = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModel();

    // Map the 'ID' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'id' field
    $idField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('id');
    $idField->from('ID')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'Type' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'type' field
    $typeField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('type');
    $typeField->from('Type')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'PredecessorID' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'predecessorId' field
    $predecessorIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('predecessorId');
    $predecessorIdField->from('PredecessorID')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'SuccessorID' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'successorId' field
    $successorIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('successorId');
    $successorIdField->from('SuccessorID')
            ->type('number');

    $dependencyModel->id('id')
        ->addField($idField)
        ->addField($typeField)
        ->addField($predecessorIdField)
        ->addField($successorIdField);

    // Create the schema
    $dependencySchema = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchema();
    $dependencySchema ->errors('errors')
            ->model($dependencyModel);

    // Create a data source
    $dependenciesDataSource = new \Kendo\Data\DataSource();
    $dependenciesDataSource->transport($dependencyTransport)
        ->schema($dependencySchema)
        ->batch(true);
    ?>

Step 4 Create a Gantt and set its data source and dependencies data source.

Example
    <?php
    $gantt = new \Kendo\UI\Gantt('gantt');

    $gantt->dataSource($tasksDataSource)
        ->dependencies($dependenciesDataSource);
    ?>

Step 5 Output the gantt by echoing the result of the render method.

Example
    <?php
    echo $gantt->render();
    ?>

Creation of Files Returning Tasks as JSON

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when creating a PHP file which returns JSON.

Step 1 Create a new PHP file called tasks.php. This file will return data in JSON format. The data source is configured to request it via the url setting.

Step 2 Create a PDO connection.

Example
    <?php
    $db = new PDO('sqlite:../sample.db');
    ?>

Step 3 Retrieve all records from the GanttTasks table.

Example
    <?php
    $statement = $db->prepare('SELECT *, strftime(\'%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ\', Start) as Start, strftime(\'%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ\', End) as End FROM GanttTasks');
    $statement->execute();
    $tasks = $statement->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);
    ?>

Step 4 Return the records as JSON.

Example
    <?php
    // Set response content type
    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    // Return JSON
    echo json_encode($tasks, JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);
    ?>

Creation of Files Returning Dependencies as JSON

Step 1 Create a new PHP file called dependencies.php. This file will return data in JSON format. The data source is configured to request it via the url setting.

Step 2 Create a PDO connection.

Example
    <?php
    $db = new PDO('sqlite:../sample.db');
    ?>

Step 3 Retrieve all records from the GanttDependencies table.

Example
    <?php
    $statement = $db->prepare('SELECT * FROM GanttDependencies');
    $statement->execute();
    $dependencies = $statement->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);
    ?>

Step 4 Return the records as JSON.

Example
    <?php
    // Set response content type
    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    // Return JSON
    echo json_encode($dependencies, JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);
    ?>

Creation of Files Performing CRUD on Tasks

Step 1 Create a new PHP file called tasks.php. This file will perform CRUD operations.

Step 2 Create a PDO connection.

Example
    <?php
    $db = new PDO('sqlite:../sample.db');
    ?>

Step 3 Read the request body and parse it as JSON. In the previous example, the Kendo UI DataSource is configured so as to submit its parameters as JSON via the parameterMap.

Example
    <?php
    $request = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'));
    ?>

Step 4 Get the current operation type, available as the type query string parameter.

Example
    <?php
    $type = $_GET['type'];
    ?>

Step 5 Declare a variable which will be returned as a result of the operation.

Example
    <?php
    $result = null;
    ?>

Step 6 Implement create.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'create') {
        // In batch mode the inserted records are available in the 'models' field
        $createdTasks = $request->models;

        $result = array();

        foreach($createdTasks as $task) {
            // Create SQL INSERT statement
            $statement = $db->prepare('INSERT INTO GanttTasks (Title, Start, End, ParentID, OrderID, PercentComplete, Summary, Expanded) VALUES (:title, :start, :end, :parentId, :orderId, :percentComplete, :summary, :expanded)');

            // Bind parameter values
            $statement->bindValue(':title', $task->Title);
            $statement->bindValue(':start', $task->Start);
            $statement->bindValue(':end', $task->End);
            $statement->bindValue(':parentId', $task->ParentID);
            $statement->bindValue(':orderId', $task->OrderID);
            $statement->bindValue(':percentComplete', $task->PercentComplete);
            $statement->bindValue(':summary', $task->Summary);
            $statement->bindValue(':expanded', $task->Expanded);

            // Execute the statement
            $statement->execute();

            // Set ID to the last inserted ID (ID is auto-incremented column)
            $task->ID = $db->lastInsertId();

            // The result of the 'create' operation is all inserted tasks
            $result[] = $task;
        }
    }
    ?>

Step 7 Implement read.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'read') {
        $statement = $db->prepare('SELECT *, strftime(\'%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ\', Start) as Start, strftime(\'%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ\', End) as End FROM GanttTasks');
        $statement->execute();
        $result = $statement->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);
    }
    ?>

Step 8 Implement update.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'update') {
        // in batch mode the updated records are available in the 'models' field
        $updatedTasks = $request->models;

        $result = array();

        foreach($updatedTasks as $task) {
            // Create UPDATE SQL statement
            $statement = $db->prepare('UPDATE GanttTasks SET Title = :title, Start = :start, End = :end, ParentID = :parentId, OrderID = :orderId, PercentComplete = :percentComplete, Summary = :summary, Expanded = :expanded WHERE ID = :id');

            // Bind parameter values
            $statement->bindValue(':title', $task->Title);
            $statement->bindValue(':start', $task->Start);
            $statement->bindValue(':end', $task->End);
            $statement->bindValue(':parentId', $task->ParentID);
            $statement->bindValue(':orderId', $task->OrderID);
            $statement->bindValue(':percentComplete', $task->PercentComplete);
            $statement->bindValue(':summary', $task->Summary);
            $statement->bindValue(':expanded', $task->Expanded);
            $statement->bindValue(':id', $task->ID);

            // Execute the statement
            $statement->execute();

            // The result of the 'update' operation is all udpated tasks
            $result[] = $task;
        }
    }
   ?>

Step 9 Implement destroy.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'destroy') {
        // in batch mode the destroyed records are available in the 'models' field
        $destroyedTasks = $request->models;

        foreach($destroyedTasks as $task) {
            // Create DELETE SQL statement
            $statement = $db->prepare('DELETE FROM GanttTasks WHERE ID = :id');

            // Bind parameter values
            $statement->bindValue(':id', $task->ID);

            // Execute the statement
            $statement->execute();
        }
    }
    ?>

Step 10 Return the result of the operation as JSON.

Example
    <?php
    // Set response content type
    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    echo json_encode($result, JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);
    ?>

Creation of Files Performing CRUD on Dependencies

Step 1 Create a new PHP file called dependencies.php. This file will perform CRUD operations.

Step 2 Create a PDO connection.

Example
    <?php
    $db = new PDO('sqlite:../sample.db');
    ?>

Step 3 Read the request body and parse it as JSON. In the previous example, the Kendo UI DataSource is configured so as to submit its parameters as JSON via the parameterMap.

Example
    <?php
    $request = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'));
    ?>

Step 4 Get the current operation type, available as the type query string parameter.

Example
    <?php
    $type = $_GET['type'];
    ?>

Step 5 Declare a variable which will be returned as a result of the operation.

Example
    <?php
    $result = null;
    ?>

Step 6 Implement create.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'create') {
        // In batch mode the inserted records are available in the 'models' field
        $createdDependencies = $request->models;

        $result = array();

        foreach($createdDependencies as $dependency) {
            // Create SQL INSERT statement
            $statement = $db->prepare('INSERT INTO GanttDependencies (Type, PredecessorID, SuccessorID) VALUES (:type, :predecessorId, :successorId)');

            // Bind parameter values
            $statement->bindValue(':type', $dependency->Type);
            $statement->bindValue(':predecessorId', $dependency->PredecessorID);
            $statement->bindValue(':successorId', $dependency->SuccessorID);

            // Execute the statement
            $statement->execute();

            // Set ID to the last inserted ID (ID is auto-incremented column)
            $dependency->ID = $db->lastInsertId();

            // The result of the 'create' operation is all inserted dependencies
            $result[] = $dependency;
        }
    }
    ?>

Step 7 Implement read.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'read') {
        $statement = $db->prepare('SELECT * FROM GanttDependencies');
        $statement->execute();
        $result = $statement->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);
    }
    ?>

Step 8 Implement destroy.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'destroy') {
        // in batch mode the destroyed records are available in the 'models' field
        $destroyedDependencies = $request->models;

        foreach($destroyedDependencies as $dependency) {
            // Create DELETE SQL statement
            $statement = $db->prepare('DELETE FROM GanttDependencies WHERE ID = :id');

            // Bind parameter values
            $statement->bindValue(':id', $dependency->ID);

            // Execute the statement
            $statement->execute();
        }
    }
    ?>

Step 9 Return the result of the operation as JSON.

Example
    <?php
    // Set response content type
    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    echo json_encode($result, JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);
    ?>

Use DataSourceResult Helpers

The DataSourceResult class is a helper utility on top of PDO which simplifies common CRUD operations. The DataSourceResult can also perform paging, sorting, filtering, grouping and aggregate calculation on the server side by generating SQL executed via PDO. It is distributed with the Telerik UI for PHP demos and can be found in the /wrappers/php/lib/ directory of the Telerik UI for PHP distribution.

First, configure a Kendo UI Gantt for PHP binding and then implement the remote service which will return JSON.

Configuration (DataSourceResult)

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Gantt for remote binding, using DataSourceResult.

Step 1 Follow the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a data source and configure it.

Example
    <?php
    $taskTransport = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransport();

    // Configure the remote service - a PHP file called 'tasks.php'
    // The query string parameter 'type' specifies the type of CRUD operation

    $taskCreate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportCreate();

    $taskCreate->url('tasks.php?type=create')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $taskRead = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportRead();

    $taskRead->url('tasks.php?type=read')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $taskUpdate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportUpdate();

    $taskUpdate->url('tasks.php?type=update')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $taskDestroy = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportDestroy();

    $taskDestroy->url('tasks.php?type=destroy')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    // Configure the transport. Send all data source parameters as JSON using the parameterMap setting
    $taskTransport->create($taskCreate)
              ->read($taskRead)
              ->update($taskUpdate)
              ->destroy($taskDestroy)
              ->parameterMap('function(data) {
                  return kendo.stringify(data);
              }');

    $taskModel = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModel();

    // Map the 'ID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'id' field
    $idField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('id');
    $idField->type('number')
            ->from('ID')
            ->nullable(true);

    // Map the 'OrderID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'orderId' field
    $orderIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('orderId');
    $orderIdField->from('OrderID')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'ParentID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'parentId' field
    $parentIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('parentId');
    $parentIdField->from('ParentID')
            ->defaultValue(null)
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'Start' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'start' field
    $startField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('start');
    $startField->from('Start')
            ->type('date');

    // Map the 'End' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'end' field
    $endField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('end');
    $endField->from('End')
            ->type('date');

    // Map the 'OrderID' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'orderId' field
    $titleField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('title');
    $titleField->from('Title')
            ->defaultValue('')
            ->type('string');

    // Map the 'PercentComplete' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'percentComplete' field
    $percentCompleteField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('percentComplete');
    $percentCompleteField->from('PercentComplete')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'Summary' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'summary' field
    $summaryField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('summary');
    $summaryField->from('Summary')
            ->type('boolean');

    // Map the 'Expanded' column of the 'GanttTasks' table to 'expanded' field
    $expandedField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('expanded');
    $expandedField->from('Expanded')
            ->defaultValue(true)
            ->type('boolean');

    $taskModel->id('id')
        ->addField($idField)
        ->addField($parentIdField)
        ->addField($orderIdField)
        ->addField($startField)
        ->addField($endField)
        ->addField($titleField)
        ->addField($percentCompleteField)
        ->addField($summaryField)
        ->addField($expandedField);

    // Create the schema
    $taskSchema = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchema();
    $taskSchema ->data('data')
            ->errors('errors')
            ->model($taskModel)
            ->total('total');

    // Create a data source
    $tasksDataSource = new \Kendo\Data\DataSource();
    $tasksDataSource->transport($taskTransport)
        ->schema($taskSchema)
        ->batch(true);
    ?>

Step 3 Create a data source for the dependencies and configure it.

Example
    <?php
    $dependencyTransport = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransport();

    // Configure the remote service - a PHP file called 'dependencies.php'
    // The query string parameter 'type' specifies the type of CRUD operation

    $dependencyCreate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportCreate();

    $dependencyCreate->url('dependencies.php?type=create')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $dependencyRead = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportRead();

    $dependencyRead->url('dependencies.php?type=read')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $dependencyUpdate = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportUpdate();

    $dependencyUpdate->url('dependencies.php?type=update')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    $dependencyDestroy = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceTransportDestroy();

    $dependencyDestroy->url('dependencies.php?type=destroy')
         ->contentType('application/json')
         ->type('POST');

    // Configure the transport. Send all data source parameters as JSON using the parameterMap setting
    $dependencyTransport->create($dependencyCreate)
              ->read($dependencyRead)
              ->update($dependencyUpdate)
              ->destroy($dependencyDestroy)
              ->parameterMap('function(data) {
                  return kendo.stringify(data);
              }');

    $dependencyModel = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModel();

    // Map the 'ID' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'id' field
    $idField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('id');
    $idField->from('ID')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'Type' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'type' field
    $typeField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('type');
    $typeField->from('Type')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'PredecessorID' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'predecessorId' field
    $predecessorIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('predecessorId');
    $predecessorIdField->from('PredecessorID')
            ->type('number');

    // Map the 'SuccessorID' column of the 'GanttDependencies' table to 'successorId' field
    $successorIdField = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchemaModelField('successorId');
    $successorIdField->from('SuccessorID')
            ->type('number');

    $dependencyModel->id('id')
        ->addField($idField)
        ->addField($typeField)
        ->addField($predecessorIdField)
        ->addField($successorIdField);

    // Create the schema
    $dependencySchema = new \Kendo\Data\DataSourceSchema();
    $dependencySchema ->data('data')
            ->errors('errors')
            ->model($dependencyModel)
            ->total('total');

    // Create a data source
    $dependenciesDataSource = new \Kendo\Data\DataSource();
    $dependenciesDataSource->transport($dependencyTransport)
        ->schema($dependencySchema)
        ->batch(true);
    ?>

Step 4 Create a Gantt and set its data source and dependencies data source.

Example
    <?php
    $gantt = new \Kendo\UI\Gantt('gantt');

    $gantt->dataSource($tasksDataSource)
        ->dependencies($dependenciesDataSource);
    ?>

Step 5 Output the Gantt by echoing the result of the render method.

Example
    <?php
    echo $gantt->render();
    ?>

Creation of Files Performing CRUD on Tasks (DataSourceResult)

Step 1 Create a new PHP file called tasks.php. This file will perform CRUD operations.

Step 2 Read the request body and parse it as JSON. In the previous example, the Kendo UI DataSource is configured to submit its parameters as JSON via the parameterMap.

Example
    <?php
    $request = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'));
    ?>

Step 3 Create a new instance of the DataSourceResult.

Example
    <?php
    $result = new DataSourceResult('sqlite:../sample.db');
    ?>

Step 4 Get the current operation type, available as the type query string parameter.

Example
    <?php
    $type = $_GET['type'];
    ?>

Step 5 Declare a variable which will be returned as a result of the operation.

Example
    <?php
    $data = null;
    ?>

Step 6 Implement create.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'create') {
        // The 'create' method of DataSourceResult accepts table name, array of column names, array of models and the name of the primary key column
        $data = $result->create('GanttTasks',
            array('ID', 'Title', 'Start', 'End', 'OrderID', 'ParentID', 'PercentComplete', 'Summary', 'Expanded'),
            $request->models, 'ID');
    }
    ?>

Step 7 Implement read.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'read') {
        // The 'read' method accepts table name, array of columns to select and request parameters as array
        $data = $result->read('GanttTasks',
                array('Title', 'strftime(\'%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ\', Start) as Start', 'strftime(\'%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ\', End) as End', 'ID', 'OrderID', 'ParentID', 'PercentComplete', 'Summary', 'Expanded'),
                $request);
    }
    ?>

Step 8 Implement update.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'update') {
        // The 'update' method of DataSourceResult accepts table name, array of column names, array of models and the name of the primary key column
        $data = $result->update('GanttTasks',
            array('ID', 'Title', 'Start', 'End', 'OrderID', 'ParentID', 'PercentComplete', 'Summary', 'Expanded'),
            $request->models, 'ID');
    }
    ?>

Step 9 Implement destroy.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'destroy') {
        // The 'destroy' method of DataSourceResult accepts table name, array of models and the name of the primary key column
        $data = $result->update('GanttTasks', $request->models, 'ID');
    }
    ?>

Step 10 Return the result of the operation as JSON.

Example
    <?php
    // Set response content type
    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    echo json_encode($data, JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);
    ?>

Creation of Files Performing CRUD on Dependencies (DataSourceResult)

Step 1 Create a new PHP file called dependencies.php. This file will perform CRUD operations.

Step 2 Copy /wrappers/php/lib/DataSourceResult.php to your web site root and include it.

Example
    <?php require_once '../lib/DataSourceResult.php'; ?>

Step 3 Read the request body and parse it as JSON. In the previous example, the Kendo UI DataSource is configured to submit its parameters as JSON via the parameterMap.

Example
    <?php
    $request = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'));
    ?>

Step 4 Create a new instance of the DataSourceResult.

Example
    <?php
    $result = new DataSourceResult('sqlite:../sample.db');
    ?>

Step 5 Get the current operation type, available as the type query string parameter.

Example
    <?php
    $type = $_GET['type'];
    ?>

Step 6 Declare a variable which will be returned as a result of the operation.

Example
    <?php
    $data = null;
    ?>

Step 7 Implement create.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'create') {
        // The 'create' method of DataSourceResult accepts table name, array of column names, array of models and the name of the primary key column
        $data = $result->create('GanttDependencies',
            array('ID', 'Type', 'PredecessorID', 'SuccessorID'),
            $request->models, 'ID');
    }
    ?>

Step 8 Implement read.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'read') {
        // The 'read' method accepts table name, array of columns to select and request parameters as array
        $data = $result->read('GanttDependencies',
                array('ID', 'Type', 'PredecessorID', 'SuccessorID'), $request);
    }
    ?>

Step 9 Implement destroy.

Example
    <?php
    if ($type == 'destroy') {
        // The 'destroy' method of DataSourceResult accepts table name, array of models and the name of the primary key column
        $data = $result->update('GanttDependencies', $request->models, 'ID');
    }
    ?>

Step 10 Return the result of the operation as JSON.

Example
    <?php
    // Set response content type
    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    echo json_encode($data, JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);
    ?>
