Seat map.


Recommended Posts

Hello I'm Rodney, i would like to ask for advice and guides on how could i make a simple seat map which every seat has to be updated by colors if it its reserved, paid etc. any idea to connect it to database to determine the seat status.

And one thing, im currently using the old php 4xxx and i will use php5, i want to know if what should i change in my database connection. like mysql as mysqli? is there anything more about it?  Sorry for my bad english.  thank you.  ::)

You don't say what type of seat but it would probably be time-based as well as location-based so you would need a data structure along these lines.

+------------+                                   +-------------+
|  seat      |                                   | session     |
+------------+                                   +-------------+
| seatId     |---+                         +-----| sessionId   |
| seat_row   |   |                         |     | sessionDate |
| seat_no    |   |                         |     | sessionTime |
| location   |   |                         |     +-------------+
+------------+   |                         |
                 |     +---------------+   |
                 |     | booking       |   |
                 |     +---------------+   |
                 |     | bookingId     |   |
                 |     | sessionId     | >-+
                 +---< | seatId        |
                       | status        |

"Location" in the seat table would, in the case of a theatre, be something like front stalls, balcony etc. You would need to store enough for you calculate the seat position on a map. Say from row and seat number in a simple layout.
