TRIGGER IN MYSQL

by Ranganathan 2012-08-27 18:53:51

Syntax:

CREATE
[DEFINER = { user | CURRENT_USER }]
TRIGGER trigger_name trigger_time trigger_event
ON tbl_name FOR EACH ROW trigger_body

This statement creates a new trigger. A trigger is a named database object that is associated with a table, and that activates when a particular event occurs for the table. The trigger becomes associated with the table named tbl_name, which must refer to a permanent table. You cannot associate a trigger with a TEMPORARY table or a view. CREATE TRIGGER was added in MySQL 5.0.2.

example:

CREATE TABLE test1(a1 INT);
CREATE TABLE test2(a2 INT);
CREATE TABLE test3(a3 INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY);
CREATE TABLE test4(
a4 INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
b4 INT DEFAULT 0
);

CREATE TRIGGER testref BEFORE INSERT ON test1
FOR EACH ROW BEGIN
INSERT INTO test2 SET a2 = NEW.a1;
DELETE FROM test3 WHERE a3 = NEW.a1;
UPDATE test4 SET b4 = b4 + 1 WHERE a4 = NEW.a1;
END;
|

delimiter ;

INSERT INTO test3 (a3) VALUES
(NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL),
(NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL);

INSERT INTO test4 (a4) VALUES
(0), (0), (0), (0), (0), (0), (0), (0), (0), (0);
