Hello, I have a little problem , I am currently developing an application with PHP and MySQL , this application should show me more persons, each person must have one or more services and each service can be inversely associated with several people, for this I have 2 tables, one containing the data of the persons (personnel) and the other contains the names of services and a foreign key that references the id of the persons table (liste_service_log), below the image of two tables,

the fields etat is a boolean fields and default null, below a picture of what I want as result,
the fields ( etat ) is the type checkbox , if you check a box it is set to 1 in the database
and here what I actually got


Here are below the code of the page that loads to display my table ,

here the script join.php


// DataTables PHP library
include( "../../php/DataTables.php" );

// Alias Editor classes so they are easy to use

 * Example PHP implementation used for the join.html example
Editor::inst( $db, 'liste_service_log' )
        Field::inst( 'liste_service_log.nom_service' ),
        Field::inst( 'liste_service_log.etat' ),

        Field::inst( 'liste_service_log.id_personnel' )
            ->options( 'personnel', 'id', 'id' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.id' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.name' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.surname' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.grade' )
    ->leftJoin( 'personnel', 'personnel.id', '=', 'liste_service_log.id_personnel' )

actually I used the plug-in Editor-PHP-1.4.2 and I proceeded like the example in the link below with some modifications

What I want to know:

  1. is that the design of the database is correct to achieve the desired result
  2. why the data from the two tables do not appear
  3. how to correct my mistakes

Is the design of the database is correct to achieve the desired resulting output
Therefore, the data from both table is not displayed
how to correct my mistakes

Since you are using a plugin, it has predefined functions upon which your application is built.

  1. Your database structure is correct to achieve this results.

  2. Why your results are not being displayed, I can't actually tell, because I don't know if the leftjoin and process methods used by your plugin are defined to output your information.

  3. Since this is a plugin you can read more about it on its forum or website. But if I can help in actual php codes This will be something like you select the fields you want to display from the two tables but make sure you use their, let me say compound name.

table1.name, table1.contact, table2.service

FROM the first table or second (which depends on the main table you have)
LEFT JOIN the second or let me say slave table.
ON "here you provide you condition"

saying table2's customer id is equal to table1's id.

table2.customerid = table1.id

Hope you understand everything.


I'am sorry i didn't inderstand how may i correct the codes php, i already provide my condition

Editor::inst( $db, 'liste_service_log' )
        Field::inst( 'liste_service_log.nom_service' ),
        Field::inst( 'liste_service_log.etat' ),
        Field::inst( 'liste_service_log.id_personnel' )
            ->options( 'personnel', 'id', 'id' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.id' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.name' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.surname' ),
        Field::inst( 'personnel.grade' )
    ->leftJoin( 'personnel', 'personnel.id', '=', 'liste_service_log.id_personnel' )

but it doesn't work, if there is another solution other than the use of this plugin I'm ready
