Issue Type: New Feature Created: 2008-02-16T04:33:54.000+0000 Last Updated: 2009-01-08T07:32:41.000+0000 Status: Resolved Fix version(s): - 1.8.0 (30/Apr/09)

On a few occasions I had to check if a column was the primary key (with auto-increment) in a table. One of these occasions was when I wanted to automate the creating/updating of a row after a form has been submitted and validated. The identity column needed to be ignored, because a value shouldn't be explicitly set. I ended up writing the following method in a custom Zend_Db_Table class:

<pre class="highlight">
public function isIdentity($column)
    if (!isset($this->_metadata[$column])) {
        return false;

    return (bool) $this->_metadata[$column]['IDENTITY'];

I'd like to see this method added to Zend_Db_Table_Abstract if possible for 1.5 :)

This doesn't appear to have been fixed in 1.5.0. Please update if this is not correct.

It seems that in general ZDTA likes to throw exceptions when a non-existing column is specified. In my own SVN I changed the return false to throw an exception.
