DB<connectionname> Variable (PHP)

Applies to

Page Context


object (clsDB<connectionname>)




global $DB<connectionname>


This property is a global variable declared at the beginning of the page and represents each database connection used within the page. The connection object encapsulates the implementation details used to establish the connection with the database (i.e. database name, location, user login/password, etc).

The database connection variable can be used to perform custom database operations (e.g. it is used as the fourth argument of the CCDLookup function). The name of the database connection object is created by prepending the connection name (configured in the CCS environment) with the prefix "DB" (e.g. for a connection called Internet within CodeCharge Studio, the corresponding variable name for the connection object would be DBInternet).
