changing to ADOdb connections

Recommended Posts

I am trying to change to ADOdb connections and I have most things working
but I have one problem

in my old way of connecting I used this method
function read_connection()
//guest connection (read only)
$GLOBALS["ReadConnection"] = mysql_connect($GLOBALS["Host"], $GLOBALS["SelectUser"], $GLOBALS["SelectPassword"]);
if (!$GLOBALS["SelectPassword"]) die ("Could not connect MySQL guestconnection: " . mysql_errno() . " : " . mysql_error());
//database selecteren en connectie openen
mysql_select_db($GLOBALS["Database"],$GLOBALS["ReadConnection"]) or die ("Could not open database guestconnection: " . mysql_errno() . " : " . mysql_error());
mysql_query("SET NAMES 'utf8'");

IN the ADOdb way I use this
$dbread = &ADONewConnection('mysql');
$dbread->Connect($Host, $SelectUser, $SelectPassword, $Database);
$dbread->debug = $debug;

How can I define the
mysql_query("SET NAMES 'utf8'");
in the ADOdb connection ?

thank you
