Appendix: Regenerating objects

Imagine that you use POG to generate a number of classes for a fairly large web app. Four months later, the application has had some success, but there are new features that need to be implemented, classes that need to be extended, attributes that need to be added.

That's the scenario we encountered one day and you just might too. Sure, if this happens to you, you can always go back to the POG homepage and generate all your classes from scratch. But what if you could simply click on a link and your browser takes you to the main page and all your attributes have been populated for you?

POG provides 2 easy ways of regenerating objects:

Method #1: In Step 3 of the Setup process, you should see a "regenerate table" button which looks like this:

Clicking on this button will take you to the POG website and all the fields and attribute fields will be prepopulated for you.

Method #2: Look in the header of your object code. You'll see an @link line in the header comment. It should look something like this:

If your editor supports it, click on this link and your browser will take you to the main Php Object Generator homepage with all your chosen settings prefilled for you. You can also simply copy this URL and paste it in your browser if you can't click on it from your PHP editor.
