Changes in dhtmlxConnector bundled with dhtmlxGantt and dhtmlxScheduler

Note that we’ve changed the default database adapter to PDO. So, if you use PDO driver, no changes should be required:

$res = new PDO("mysql:host=;dbname=schedulertest", "scheduler", "scheduler");
$dbtype = "PDO";

$scheduler = new schedulerConnector($res, $dbtype);

if you use php_mysql, then db_mysql.php has to be included manually and type of connection (“MySQL”) must be specified in the connector constructor:

$res=mysql_connect("", "scheduler", "scheduler");
$dbtype = "MySQL";

require_once ("connector/db_mysql.php"); //! important
require_once ("connector/scheduler_connector.php");

$scheduler = new schedulerConnector($res, $dbtype);
