Force database transaction rollback

Hi all,

I am adding this here to see if I am missing something, and if not if it could be added to the todo list to make codeigniter better ;o)

I am using transaction inside a try catch and in the catch I want to force a rollback of the database even if all the queries were successfully. In my case this is because I only want to commit the database if an email is successfully sent but I'm sure there are many other cases where this would be useful.

Obviously I know I can use the manual transaction stuff like _being _rollback etc but this wont give the extra functionality eg nested transactions that trans_start and trans_complete give.

My simple solution at the mo is to add a parameter to the trans_complete function in DB_driver.php that you can pass a boolean of TRUE to if you want to force a rollback. Then by changing the line:

PHP Code:
if ($this->_trans_status === FALSE OR $this->_trans_failure === TRUE


PHP Code:
if ($force_rollback OR $this->_trans_status === FALSE OR $this->_trans_failure === TRUE

it gives me the desired effect.

So am I missing something? or would this be a usefully little update...

Many thanks
