I can not dynamically change table name(dev-1.9)
  • Hello there,

    I have following method in the model.
     public static function set_table(int $user_id)                                                                                
        static::$_table_name = "tests_".substr(str_pad((string)$user_id,2,0,STR_PAD_LEFT),-2); 

    public static function add($user_id)
      $prop = array('user_id'=>$user_id);
      return self::forge($prop)->save(); 

    But, it dose not change the table name.

    Do you have any suggetion for this?

    Do not use self:, use static:. Late static binding is important if you change static properties.
  • in your model:
    public static function table()
          // some magic code
          return 'new_table_name';

    The model already has a static method for retrieving the table name.

    The problem is that self:: will call the original base model, not the current derived class. You need late static binding for that.
  • Hello there,

    Sorry for late reply.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I did not know that I have to use static:: all the time when I change static properties.

    I still have to more about PHP.

    Thank you, Harro :)
