PHP Connector DHTMLX

Multi-user sync

APPLICABLE TO: Grid, TreeGrid, Tree, Combo, Scheduler, DataView, Chart, Form

Starting from version 1.0, dhtmlxConnector can work in multi-user mode that allows users to see changes of each other in real time.

To enable mode you need to write additions both to client- and server-sides:


  1. init component with dataprocessor (if it hasn't initialized yet)

    dp = new dataProcessor("myconnector.php");
  2. call setAutoUpdate() method where input parameter is delay between update calls



  1. call enable_live_update() method

    	$grid = new GridConnector($res);
    	$grid->enable_live_update('actions_table');  //this line!

    actions_table - table in database, which will be used for sync. data storage.
    It needs to have the next structure:

    CREATE TABLE `actions_table` (
      `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
      `dataId` int(11) NOT NULL,
      `type` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
      `user` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
