Thanks for responding Warren. Here are the MySQL and SSQLS
declarations as requested...
CREATE TABLE t_events (
event_id int auto_increment,
event_date timestamp default current_timestamp,
event_text varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
PRIMARY KEY (event_id)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8"
sql_create_6(t_events, 1, 6,
The question (rephrased)...
Assume I'm trying to avoid having multiple sub-SSQLS declarations on
the one table, I'd like to be able to set certain SSQLS fields so
that they don't update the MySQL records on insert or update. I can
set the auto increment field to value zero and this will not cause the
MySQL value to be over written. I'm looking for a way to set the
timestamp field so that too will allow MySQL to do it's own thing.
Here's my code that isn't doing what I' like...
row.event_id = 0;
row.event_date = mysqlpp::sql_timestamp::now();
row.event_text = new_event_text;
row.event_type = new_event_type;
row.event_source_id = new_event_source_id;
row.event_destination_id = new_event_destination_id;
mysqlpp::Query query = con.query();
The event_date field sets the MySQL field to "0000-00-00 00:00:00".
I've tried all sought of other methods (that will compiler), but
haven't been able to stumble on the right one yet.
My question is, how can this be achieved, or is it really necessary to
define all possible permutations of an SSQLS declaration?
i.e. I'd like to code something like this...
row.event_date = 0;
or even better...
row.event_date = mysqlpp::IGNORE;
