Database interaction?
« on: February 22, 2012, 01:46:40 AM »
Hi all~ I was curious as to whether there is a way in playmaker to communicate with a database (I have already set up a connection to a local Microsoft Access database)

For instance compare user input to contents in the given database...

Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

 You would need to create some custom actions to build queries and execute them.

If you managed to link to a database, writing custom actions for playmaker will be no problem for you. Simply look at the examples in this forum, and it will give you 99% of what you need to know about it.

else, don't hesitate to ask. For example if you can give a small example of code to execute, then I'll be happy to port it as an action.

Bye,

 Jean
