I Want To Take Out The Result From Mysql's Connection.query And Save It In Global Scope Chain In Nodejs

- 1 answer

I tried bringing out result by storing in variable current product. But I cant use it outside the function, so my array returns empty

var connection = mysql.createConnection({
                host: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.host,
                user: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.user,
                password: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.password,
                database: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.database
                })
var query_current_products = 'select * from table;';
var current_products = [];

  connection.connect(function(err) {
                       if (err) throw err;
                       console.log("Connected!");
                       connection.query(query_current_products, function (err, result) {
                             if (err) throw err;
                             //console.log(result);
                            current_products = result;
                      });

                }
                )
console.log(current_products);

Try to use async/await syntax to get your results

  const mysql = require('mysql'); // or use import if you use TS
    const util = require('util');
    const conn = mysql.createConnection({
   host: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.host,
     user: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.user,
      password: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.password,
      database: config.config.mysql.opencart_local.database
     });
    var current_products = [];
    // 
    var query_current_products = 'select * from table;';

    (async function getProducts () => {
      try {
        const rows = await query( query_current_products);
        console.log(rows);
        current_products=rows;
      } finally {
        conn.end();
      }
    })()
