Php – belongsTo in Cake php

belongs-tocakephpphp

I'm following CakePHP naming convention

I need to make "many to one"-$belongsTo association
Citie to Countrie ——- meaning Many Cities belong to a Country

This is the Citie Model

class Citie extends AppModel
{
    var $name = 'Citie';
    var $belongsTo = array(
        'Countrie' => array(
            'className' => 'Countrie',
            'foreignKey' => 'countrie_id'
        )
    ); 
}

You can see that there are no association data when result is returned on this link
DisplayCity

This is the Countrie Model

class Countrie extends AppModel 
{
    var $name = 'Countrie';
}

Here you can see that I follow the naming convention. Display all countries

Best Solution

if you are following the convention
so you must have City model for cities table, Country model for countries table and the foreignKey will be country_id

<?php
class City extends AppModel {
    var $name = 'City';
    var $belongsTo = array(
        'Country' => array(
            'className' => 'Country',
            'foreignKey' => 'country_id',
        )
    );
}
?>

and

<?php
class Country extends AppModel {
    var $name = 'Country';
    var $hasMany = array(
        'City' => array(
            'className' => 'City',
            'foreignKey' => 'country_id',
        )
    );

}
?>
