    I don't quite understand I'm afraid - are you looking to alias the table name? If so try:

    Editor::inst( $db, $TblName .' as tbl')
    

    However it isn't something we use extensively, so it is possible there might be a few rough edges.

    hi @allan

    Yes it was what I was looking for... I use .data files that describe datas, .def that describe associated table and editor...

    With many table in a dataset, fields do have prefix using table name.

    So when I want to test a way using a view, the stable name used for tests change, and I need to change fields definition in .def files.

    So using alias I can reuse fields definitions with no change at all...

    I did test $Table as 'tbl', missing table name must be a string

    Sometimes I'm better... and this is not really difficult to be

    Thanks

    It is not possible to use alias for primary table in PHP. DELETE-statement doesn't handle it. You can only have alias for the joined tables.

    A fix were planned for editor 1.9.3 but it still doesn't work:

    Hi Bob and Anders,

    I've just committed a fix for this issue to the Editor PHP libraries.

    If you'd like to try it immediately, you can patch your existing Editor.php with that change. If you do, let me know how you get on.

    Regards,
    Allan
