A tip that might be useful if your mysqli_insert_id() is failing (this might also work for old mysql_insert_id too)

My code that had previously been working for months was failing to retrieve the last ID from a regular INSERT. I was collecting the ID in the 'AfterExecuteInsert' event with an Action of 'Declare Variable' and setting the default to:


After googling there is the optional '$link' parameter which will make it much more likely it will return the correct ID. I found the Link_ID details after digging through the db_mysqli.php and changed it to:


So my full AfterExecuteInsert looks like this, for the 'employees' Record:

//employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert @2-0F06CAE5
function employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert(& $sender)
$employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert = true;
$Component = & $sender;
$Container = & CCGetParentContainer($sender);
global $employees; //Compatibility
//End employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert

//Declare Variable @66-7A87400E
global $latest_insert_id;
$latest_insert_id = mysqli_insert_id($Component->DataSource->Link_ID);
//End Declare Variable

//Close employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert @2-DAAF0C58
return $employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert;
//End Close employees_ds_AfterExecuteInsert

Hope it helps

Given the latest CCS update .18992 and Improved MySQL (mysqli), this new
method for retrieving the last inserted ID is required.

+1 Eric.
