$this->setTable() or $this->table not sticking - Kaosweaver - 03-19-2021

Ok, so, I've got a dynamic database setup where tickets are put in the tables and the tables can be created on the fly (as well as columns) - so I'm setting up the database model to handle this based upon incoming IDs.
Model code:
PHP Code:
    protected $table 'TN';
    protected $DBGroup 'protoEngine';

    public function getTickets(){
        echo $this->table.": enter<br>";
        echo $this->table.": change 2<br>";
        echo $this->table.": post query<br>";
        echo $this->getLastQuery();
        echo "<hr>";

    public function changeTable($queueID) {

        echo $this->table.": start<br>";
        echo $this->table.": change<br>";
        $row $this->where(['queueID'=>$queueID])->first();
        echo $this->table.": query<br>";
        echo $this->table.": query change<br>";
        $this->table $row['ticketIDprefix'];
        echo $this->table.": direct assignment<br>";
        return ['ticketTypeName'=>$row['ticketTypeName'], 'ticketTypeDescription'=>$row['ticketTypeDescription']];
controller code:
PHP Code:
     $model2 = new Protoengine();
     $tableInfo $model2->changeTable(48); 
(the code is, obviously, peppered with debugging stuff)
The output is:

TN: start
ticketTypeData: change
ticketTypeData: query
PH: query change
PH: direct assignment
PH: enter
PH: change 2
PH: post query
SELECT * FROM `ticketTypeData` LIMIT 10

The model sees the change from TN to ticketTypeData to PH (as it should) - however the query in the getTickets() function should be calling the PH table and not the ticketTypeData table.

When working with multiple tables you should always call.

PHP Code:

Before setting up a table again.

Tried it two ways:
PHP Code:

resulted in:
Call to a member function clear() on string
(which makes sense, $this->table is a string)


PHP Code:

resulted in:

I looked for the clear() function in the database system folder, didn't find it. I found a clear() function in the email and the table array parts of the system folder, but nothing under database.

So, still looking for an answer to this if anyone has any ideas.

I added:

PHP Code:

After the setTable for the new table and it did the job. The setTable function *should* be doing this in the set table in the framework as I can't see a logical reason to not have the table change when a setTable function is called.

The clear method is part of the table library, you can find it there.

I have the same problem, did you find any solution?
Did not found any Database ‚clear‘ method - i guess thats not available. Worst case scenario is to query the results without any ‚magic‘ models.
