Accessing user data

Accessing user data

Can you access any table using CC or can you only create a table ?

I want to create a component that gets the user name and user id but don't know how to tell CC to do this - the videos dont help!

If you create the component with table the same name and fields. you can access that table data.

Hi Terry,
I'm assuming from this question that you are not comfortable with editing (or do not wish to edit) the component once you have built it within Component Creator? If this is the case then I'll leave you with the previous response.
If you are willing to edit the component outside Component Creator, then getting user data is really quite simple using the standard Joomla! APIs.
As this post is a month old you may have already discovered this anyway but for those others that wish to do this then . . .
Firstly you will find that Component Creator uses these APIs through the generated code, and why wouldn't you. You can access the "current" user data by simply adding something like:
$user = Factory::getUser(); // this will return the complete user record as an object (correct for J3.9+)
Then you can pick out elements of the user object such as:
$user_id = $user->id;
Hope this helps in some small way. Cheers.
Glenn
