on_after_insert event not firing?

Questionson_after_insert event not firing?
Roy asked 6 years ago

I have used this method on a few pages now and it has been working for me. I now have a page where this method is not working.

the page uses a VendorNo in the var $vendnum which filters the data (e.g. VendorNo = ".$vendnum)

after inserting, I need to ensure the new record has the vendor ID that was used in the filter (eg. 100 )

However, the sql does not seem to be executing as the new records do not have the VendorNo set at all.

I don't see the difference in method or any errors between this page and the others that are working. Do you see any problems? How can I be sure the event is firing?

$e["on_after_insert"] = array("after_insert", null, true);

(the set_events($e) line of code was not allowed in the question form)

function after_insert($data)
$vendnum $_GET['vendorno']
$str = "update MemberVendorNos set VendorNo = ".$vendnum." where idMemberVendorNos = {$data["idMemberVendorNos"]};";

If your first column of grid is "vendorno", you can get last insert id in after_insert event using following code.

$vendnum = $data["vendorno"];

After that you can use this var in sql.

If you search jqgrid_dist.php for "after_insert" you will see how it is passed.

// run insert sql …
$sql = "INSERT INTO {$this->table} $insert_str";

$insert_id = $this->execute_query($sql,"insert_id");

### P ###
// custom after insert event execution
if (!empty($this->events["on_after_insert"]))
$func = $this->events["on_after_insert"][0];
$obj = $this->events["on_after_insert"][1];
$continue = $this->events["on_after_insert"][2];

if ($obj)
call_user_func(array($obj,$func),array($pk_field => $insert_id, "params" => &$data));
call_user_func($func,array($pk_field => $insert_id, "params" => &$data));

if (!$continue)

Thanks for your reply.

The first column in the table is idMemberVendorNos and is the unique key for that table.

VenderNo is the value that links this row to a parent row in a one to many relation.

I need a way to set this value when inserting or after inserting a row into this table. This method has worked form in other cases, and I can't figure out why it is failing to update the row in this case.

Hello Roy,

This event works as expected. If you can email code/sample-db then i can review it.
It's little difficult to suggest some solution.

For debugging, you can put echo statements in after_insert event callback and check the output in firebug's ajax response.
Hope it will help in analyzing the issue.
