Use SQL REPLACE function in UPDATE SET [message #2917] Sat, 17 March 2012 02:31 Go to next message

Wonder how to build and execute a SQL statement like this within the Radicore framework:

UPDATE msg SET author=REPLACE(author,'_',' ') WHERE id>100

Tried using updateSelection($where, $replace),
with $replace = "author='REPLACE(author,'_',' ')'".

However, that will result in the author column being populated with 'REPLACE'.

If this cannot be done within the current framework, we can iterate through each row and update each row separately, or is there a simpler / more efficient way?

Inside the 'updateSelection()' method within 'std.table.class.inc' at line 5403 there is a spurious trim() statement - remove it and your problem disappears.
