# MySQL UDFs (without ODBC)

## Recommended Posts

Sorry,

You have to shutdown your computer, wait for 30 seconds, hit it with an axe and then turn the power on...

Honestly, without the error messages / numbers I cannot help you guys.

I notice when looking in the include file that it attempts to check the client version. Am I to assume that this script must run on the same server as the MySQL database is running on? (i.e. it won't work across the network?)

It will work across the network if the server allows remote connections. The example only reads the version of the dll wihtout any further meaning.

PS: The dll has to be called libmysql.dll or libmysql_x64.dll (for x64). If you have another name, you have to specify it as a parameter.

MySQL UDFs using libmysql.dll functions: most functions from MySQL API all are prefixed with an underscore: _MySql... e.g.: _MySQL_Real_Query( sometimes parameters are chaged - read function descripti

I don't get it. @mLipok has polished (pun intended) a nice ADO UDF which works flawlessly. Why insist on using another one which causes issues?

@ProgAndy I like anything that smells to SQL !! Unfortunately you link does not work (for me ?). Rgds ptrex

Ok. So here's the deal:

I downloaded and unzipped all of the files you have listed on your first post into the includes folder. Then, I opened up the SciTE editor, and put the following code in:

#include <array.au3>
#include "mysql.au3"

; MYSQL starten, DLL im PATH (enthält auch @ScriptDir), sont Pfad zur DLL angeben. DLL muss libmysql.dll heißen.
_MySQL_InitLibrary()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, '', "could nit init MySQL")
MsgBox(0, "DLL Version:",_MySQL_Get_Client_Version()&@CRLF& _MySQL_Get_Client_Info())

$MysqlConn = _MySQL_Init() Now, it gives me this in a MsgBox: 50146 5.1.46 What am I doing wrong? The next thing I want to do is connect to a database that is hosted online, and start working with my existing data. I appreciate the time and effort you have put into this entire project ProgAndy. I'm a big fan, and I just want to get to know this system better so I can use my database with AutoIt, just like your project intends. Let me know what I have to do (even putting an axe in my computer) and I will do it, as long as it makes this work! Cheers! Manic ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites There is nothing wrong. The DLL is loaded and a Messagebox with the dll-version appears. That is expected behaviour in this example. _MySQL_Init() initlializes a handle you will use to connect to the server. By the way, EzMySQL should be easier to understand since the API is more or less hidden in simpler functions. My UDF exposes the C-API 1:1 (without prepared statements) and is therefore more powerful but also more difficult to understand. The example for EzMySql should be straight forward (open dll, open connection, query data, ...)

2005

Any idea on where I went wrong? Once I get past the basics, I should be ok.

I appreciate it

The description for the function and its parameters can be found here. The host must not contain http nor the port. There is an extra parameter for the port. The other functions are described there as well.

Also, you don't habe to copy everything from the example. For example, you are neither required to show a messagebox with the version nor the messagebox with error-demo...

Is there a way to use your DLL for the connection and use my code ?

I must be missing something simple, but I do not seem to be able to get a query to run without error.

The following test code always returns "_MySQL_Real_Query() failed with 1"

#include <MySQL.au3>
Global $MySQLServer="myserver" Global$MySQLDatabase="mydatabase"
Global $MySQLTable="mytable" Global$MySQLUser="myuser"
Global $MySQLPassword="mypassword" Global$MysqlConn
Global $MysqlConnected somefunc() Func somefunc() Local$query, $res _MySQL_InitLibrary() If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "debug", "_MySQL_InitLibrary() failed") Else$SQLloaded =True
$MysqlConn = _MySQL_Init()$MysqlConnected = _MySQL_Real_Connect($MysqlConn,$MySQLServer, $MySQLUser,$MySQLPassword, $MySQLDatabase) If$MysqlConnected = 0 Then Exit MsgBox(0, "debug", "_MySQL_Real_Connect() failed")
EndIf

$query = "REPLACE INTO " &$MySQLTable & " ( dataa, datab, datac ) VALUES ( 'valuea', 'valueb', 'valuec' )"
$res = _MySQL_Real_Query($MysqlConn, $query) If$res <> 0 Then MsgBox(0,"debug", "_MySQL_Real_Query() failed with " & $res) _MySQL_EndLibrary() EndFunc Any ideas what I am missing? (hand poised and ready for forehead slap) ----- EDIT ----- No forehead slap, but scratching my head. I came back in the office, and re-ran the code that had been failing all afternoon yesterday, and it works perfectly today, with no changes. Must have been some other app running interference, but at this point, I have no idea what it may have been. Thanks again for a great UDF!

I've got a large database I need to process that a couple of hundred tables and often up to a hundred plus fields per table. In short, lots of columns. After _EzMySql_FetchNames obtains the column name I generate a custom Select into another table based on the existence of matching columns. Column names that happen to match the reserved words in MySQL are causing _EzMySql_Exec function to error out. Here are some of the offending column names: 'INT' 'DESC' 'TABLE' 'RESTRICT' 'GROUP' 'ORDER' 'SPECIFIC' 'USE' 'DEFAULT' 'EXPLAIN' 'LIMIT' I'm thinking about searching for and renaming the columns before doing processing and changing them back later, but is there an easier way? ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites You should always escape column names with backticks: column Btw, why did you post here and not in the EzMySQL-thread?

The query is actually running but apparently hits some kind of time limit where the GUI expects to be able to respond. Is there a way to make it more patient or turn that feature off entirely? Some of my queries are combining tables and the wait could be 15 min + and the warning kicks in way before then.

The following code actually works fine but the two For/Next loops that I'm using to format the data is awfully slow - over 3 minutes for 20,000 records. Running the query and updating the GUI element are pretty quick. Is there a more efficient way? I'm just trying to make the columns line up properly in the final output. I'm already formatting the Edit box as Courier. ....$aOk = _EzMySql_GetTable2d("SELECT DOCID, NAME, BILLS, PROVIDER, DOCTOR_ABBREVIATION, ADDRESS1, ADDRESS2,CITY FROM CONCODE ORDER BY 3 DESC,2 ")

So I turned off auto commit using _MySQL_AutoCommit() and it still doesn't execute as one transaction. My first SQL statement is executed successfully then the next statement fails and the third statement also does not get executed I guess because the second statement failed. However was the first statement was successful return code that I receive is a zero. My question is how can I have all the statements executed as one transaction and if one of them fails should get a return code of -1. Thanks Steven ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Hi all, I don't know if my question was clear but what I am asking is how can I have multiple sql statements execute as one transaction and if one fails all will be rolled back and that the return code returned to the executing program will reflect that there was an error?

I have an old script that creates shares and assign permissions. It normally registers SetAcl.ocx if necessary and creates an object to assign permissions. The command that registers SetAcl was apparently working fine under Windows 7 but is not working under Windows 10. RunWait("regsvr32.exe path\to\setacl.ocx /s", "", @SW_HIDE) As I'm logged in as admin, I changed this command to : RunAsWait(@UserName, "", "", 0, "regsvr32.exe path\to\setacl.ocx /s", "", @SW_HIDE) It seems to terminate correctly but the script still doesn't work as expected. To check that, I've created that small script : Local$objSetAcl = ObjCreate("SETACL.SetACLCtrl.1") If IsObj($objSetAcl) Then ConsoleWrite("Object successfully created." & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("Object not created. Registering SetAcl.ocx" & @CRLF) Local$result = RunAsWait(@UserName, "", "", 0, "regsvr32.exe path\to\setacl.ocx /s", "", @SW_HIDE); Use of my admin username to elevate CMD ConsoleWrite("Return code : " & $result & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("Creating object" & @CRLF)$objSetAcl = ObjCreate("SETACL.SetACLCtrl.1") If IsObj(\$objSetAcl) Then ConsoleWrite("Object successfully created." & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("Object creation failed." & @CRLF) EndIf EndIf It tries to register SetAcl.ocx, return code 0 seems to be fine but still can't use SetAcl.
But if I go to CMD as admin, run the regsvr32 command and restart my script, it can create the object without issue.
I know my poor knowledge makes me miss something. Anyone can help me figure this out ?

• Dear members of the forum,
I'm working on a project in which I have to use Image recognition technique.
Due to client restrictions, I couldn't use AutoIt for this project.
Is there a way to use this DLL "ImageSearchDLL.dll" (which is used to do image recognition steps in AutoIt) in VB.Net to achieve the same result?
I have used this DLL few years before and got good results. If there is a latest version of this DLL and if you can share it, that will be helpful too.
Any guidance is deeply appreciated.

• Hi AutoIt Scripters/Programmers. I have a question about MIME Tools for Notepad++:
I've recently found a UDF about Base64 in forum, but they can't decode\encode correctly some emojis , other UTFs and etc. so i decided to use mimeTools.dll of Notepad++ or main site
My problem is how to use this dll in AutoIt Language?

• Good morning Forums
In these days, I am working on a project that involved me to use some Windows APIs to obtain some information about Terminal Servers.
I'm doing this using wtsapi32.dll in a VBA Project, but, the lack of knowledge about few things threated in the articles make this quite difficult to
implement and understand at the same time.
The most difficult thing I'm facing is "translating" C/C++ functions or struct in VBA when pointers are used, or pointers of pointers, and so on.
Since VBA seems to not have a pointer type, to make those functions work I need to implement other functions taken from other DLLs, and this confuses me a lot.
For example, starting from this code, I splitted all the functions and all the definitions to understand why they are there, and why I need to use them.
At the end, I've found out that the code I was going to implement starting from the functions provided in the Microsoft Docs won't be ever be able to work without some supplementary functions which are not mentioned anywhere.
So, I was wondering if someone would please point me out to a good and practical exaplanation about pointers (in general) or specifically for VBA, because I need to use them quite often in these days, and I'd like to understand what I am doing.

Best Regards and Stay at home 🏡
