Trait diesel::query_dsl::SaveChangesDsl[][src]

pub trait SaveChangesDsl<Conn> {
    fn save_changes<T>(self, connection: &Conn) -> QueryResult<T>
        Self: Sized,
        Conn: UpdateAndFetchResults<Self, T>
, { ... } }
Expand description

Sugar for types which implement both AsChangeset and Identifiable

On backends which support the RETURNING keyword, foo.save_changes(&conn) is equivalent to update(&foo).set(&foo).get_result(&conn). On other backends, two queries will be executed.


#[derive(Queryable, Debug, PartialEq)]
struct Animal {
   id: i32,
   species: String,
   legs: i32,
   name: Option<String>,

#[derive(AsChangeset, Identifiable)]
#[table_name = "animals"]
struct AnimalForm<'a> {
    id: i32,
    name: &'a str,

let form = AnimalForm { id: 2, name: "Super scary" };
let changed_animal = form.save_changes(&connection)?;
let expected_animal = Animal {
    id: 2,
    species: String::from("spider"),
    legs: 8,
    name: Some(String::from("Super scary")),
assert_eq!(expected_animal, changed_animal);
