can you provide examples for formating


I am using your great sqlPlugin, but I can't get behind the Syntax for Format, Header, footer...

For example, when retrieving a single row and column from a database, how to avoid the column title in the Output? I just want to use the Information given in the data field without the heading.

Maybe you can provide one or two short examples on how to use Format, Header, footer?

The formatting syntax is the same as in other Foswiki macros. The only trick is to know that the row values are in $variables named after the table column names.

By trial and error I came up with this:

%SQL{database="myDatabase" query="SELECT field1,field2 FROM myTable WHERE myParameter like ?"  params="foo%" header="" format="| $field1 | $field2 |$n"}%

If you want to customize the header:

%SQL{database="myDatabase" query="SELECT field1,field2 FROM myTable WHERE myParameter like ?"  params="foo%" header="| Column 1 | Column 2 |$n" format="| $field1 | $field2 |$n"}%
