This example illustrates how to query an Adamo database and use a report to see the result on the console.

# list of all cities and number of inhabitants
from lino.apps.contacts.contacts_demo import startup
from lino.apps.contacts.contacts_tables import City
from lino.adamo.filters import NotEmpty

qry=sess.query(City,"nation name inhabitants", orderBy="inhabitants")

print qry.getSqlSelect()

demo.startup() starts a console Session, creates a demo Database on a temporary Connection, runs a Populator to fill the database with demo data. It then returns the Session instance which gives access to all this.

The Session instance has a query() method which returns a Query instance, in this example it is a query with leadTable Cities, three columns, and sorted by number of inhabitants.

Then we call to print a DataReport whose total width we want to be 50 chars. (Default width on a console would be 79 chars.

Here is the output:

Cities where 'inhabitants' not empty
