Using jQuery Grid with PHP

“Develop a suite of light weight Client Controls that enable creating better website experiences in browsers across platforms & devices backed by any server data end-point. “

The line above is the vision statement from a presentation that I gave to the Infragistics board almost two years ago, and also to our top line customers to get feedback on the strategy. It was approved even though it was a tough bet, and the plan was set in motion. Two years later, I cannot be more happy to see what has come out of it, a jQuery based client toolset as part of our NetAdvantage for jQuery product offering.

The question today is, is it living up to the vision? I thought what better way to prove it than putting it to test. Good that our architect on the product Angel Todorov, is also well-versed in PHP and with less than an hour of him training me on some code demonstrating our jQuery Grid with PHP, I decided to share it as a blog post. It is a validation that the jQuery widgets are purely client-side that can tie in with any web framework or service data point.

So, in today’s blog, I am going to bind the jQuery grid against a PHP service which is going to get data from a MySQL database. In the end, this is what the grid is going to look like. I think these widgets are going to make PHP web applications so much more awesome Smile.

Setting up the PHP service

I am going to use a sample MySQL that contains some statistical data on countries. I am going to setup a service that can get the following information from the Country table and pass it as a JSON string to the client.

  • Country Code
  • Country Name
  • Continent
  • Region
  • Head of State
  • GNP
  • Population
  • Life Expectancy

 

This service is also going to support paging & sorting of the data.

Get All Data

The first piece I am going to start with is setting up the PHP service to get all the data and display in the grid. For that, I need to create a DB connection and grab all the data from the country table. Next, I am going to convert that into a JSON object, and send it to the requesting client.

   1: <?php
   2:  
   3: $dbhost = '127.0.0.1'; // this is the MySQL IP
   4: $dbuser = 'tester'; // those are the MySQL username & password 
   5: $dbpass = 'tester';
   6:  
   7: //Create the MySQL connection
   8: $conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die(mysql_error());
   9: $dbname = 'test';
  10: mysql_select_db($dbname) or die (mysql_error());
  11: $data = mysql_query($q) or die(mysql_error()); 
  12:  
  13: //Select all data from Country
  14: $recQ = "SELECT COUNT(*) from country";
  15:  
  16: $recCount = mysql_query($recQ) or die (mysql_error());
  17:  
  18: $rows = array();
  19: while($r = mysql_fetch_assoc($data)) {
  20:     $rows[] = $r;
  21: }
  22:  
  23: //Serializing data to JSON array and sending it back
  24: header("Content-type: application/json");
  25: $arr = mysql_fetch_array($recCount);
  26: $response = array("totalCount" => $arr[0], "records" => $rows);
  27: echo json_encode($response);
  28:  
  29: mysql_close($conn);
  30: ?>

Now when I make the call to the PHP service, it returns the following json data, which means the service is doing what it is supposed to do.

Adding Paging Functionality

Now that I have the service setup that returns all data, I am going to add some logic so that I can handle data paging as well. To do so, I am going to ask the client to send me some additional request parameters along, which is going to tell the service about the client view and about the data page requested. In PHP code, once I have that information I can construct the correct SQL query and use the rest of the logic in tacked regarding connection and json serializing in place. To the PHP code we’ve already written above, I am going to add some additional variables which is going to keep track of pageSize & pageIndex as well.

   1: $pageSize = 0;
   2: $pageIndex = -1;
   3:  
   4: foreach ( $_GET as $key=>$value ) {
   5:     // translate paging params to the SQL query 
   6:     if ($key == "psize") {
   7:         $pageSize = $value;
   8:     } else if ($key == "page") {
   9:         $pageIndex = $value;
  10:     }
  11: }
  12:  
  13: //paging (LIMIT)
  14: if ($pageSize > 0 && $pageIndex >= 0) {
  15:     $startIndex = $pageIndex * $pageSize;
  16:     $q = $q . " LIMIT $startIndex, $pageSize";
  17: }

Adding Sorting Functionality

Next, I am going to extend the service to add sorting capability. Same idea as with paging enhancement, the request is going to have the sorting information as request parameters that the service is going to decipher and query the database accordingly. The result will be sent back to the client as JSON. The code I will add to the service is as follows.

   1: $orderBy = " ORDER BY ";
   2:  
   3: $multiSort = false;
   4: $multiFilter = false;
   5:  
   6: // this will go in the "foreach" statement to handle sorting
   7: if (strpos($key, "sort(") >= 0 && strpos($key, "sort(") !== false) {
   8:  
   9:     if ($multiSort) {
  10:     
  11:         $orderBy = $orderBy . ", ";
  12:     }
  13:     $orderBy = $orderBy . substr(substr($key, 0, strlen($key)-1), strpos($key, "(") + 1) . " " . $value;
  14:     $multiSort = true;
  15: }
  16:  
  17: //this will go right before adding the paging parameters to the query
  18: if ($orderBy != " ORDER BY ") {
  19:     // sorting (ORDER BY)
  20:     $q = $q . $orderBy;
  21: }

Creating View

For the view, I am going to use the jQuery grid that’s in the NetAdvantage for jQuery package. For the datasource, I am going to give it a PHP service URL to fetch all data and then enable sorting and paging option on it. Once the user tries to sort or page the data, it is going to call the same PHP service again with the right set of request parameters and will get the correct data to display in the grid area. Here is what the jQuery method it going to look like, I already have a table element in the HTML with an id of “grid1”.

   1: $("#grid1").igGrid({
   2:     autoGenerateColumns: false,
   3:     virtualization: false,
   4:     columns: [
   5:         { headerText: "Country Code", key: "Code", width: "150px", dataType: "string" },
   6:         { headerText: "Country Name", key: "Name", width: "170px", dataType: "string" },
   7:         { headerText: "Continent", key: "Continent", width: "150px", dataType: "string" },
   8:         { headerText: "Region", key: "Region", width: "230px", dataType: "string" },
   9:         { headerText: "Head of State", key: "HeadOfState", width: "250px", dataType: "string" },
  10:         { headerText: "GNP", key: "GNP", width: "100px", dataType: "number" },
  11:         { headerText: "Population", key: "Population", width: "130px", dataType: "number" },
  12:         { headerText: "LifeExpectancy", key: "LifeExpectancy", width: "150px", dataType: "number" }
  13:     ],
  14:     dataSource: '/Samples/demos.dev/server/server.php', 
  15:     responseDataKey: 'records',
  16:     height: 400,
  17:     features: [
  18:         {
  19:             name: 'Paging',
  20:             recordCountKey: 'totalCount', 
  21:             pageSizeUrlKey: 'psize',
  22:             pageIndexUrlKey: 'page',
  23:             type: "remote"
  24:         },
  25:         {
  26:             name: 'Sorting',
  27:             sortUrlKey: "sort", // same for sorting
  28:             sortUrlKeyAscValue: "asc",
  29:             sortUrlKeyDescValue: "desc",
  30:             type: "remote"
  31:         }
  32:     ]
  33: });

If this is your first view at the client grid and the code above seems like a lot, I would suggest you check out our samples library, which contains a lot of getting started material. In the end, the grid will display country data with sorting and paging enabled.

Summary

In this example, I showed you how to connect the jQuery grid to a PHP service. You should be able to use the same service as a data resource for any of the other controls in NetAdvantage for jQuery package as well. In addition, instead of a PHP service, it could be a data service based on any framework, the same concepts can be applied and NetAdvantage jQuery controls can be used to build the front-end.

Great post Taz ! by the way, the schema for the database is part of the MySQL standard World Database - this link might be very helpful for anyone trying to set it up:
