Creating New Entities

save

New Quick entities can be created and persisted to the database by creating a new entity instance, setting the attributes on the entity, and then calling the save method.

var user = getInstance( "User" );
user.setUsername( "JaneDoe" );
user.setEmail( "jane@example.com" );
user.setPassword( "mypass1234" );
user.save();

When we call save, the record is persisted from the database and the primary key is set to the auto-generated value (if any).

create

Another option is to use the create method. This method accepts a struct of data and creates a new instance with the data specified.

var user = getInstance( "User" ).create( {
"username" = "JaneDoe",
"email" = "jane@example.com",
"password" = "mypass1234"
} );
