function question_new_attempt_uniqueid in Quiz 6.5

Same name and namespace in other branches
  1. 6.6 includes/moodle/lib/questionlib.php \question_new_attempt_uniqueid()

Returns the unique id for a new attempt

Every module can keep their own attempts table with their own sequential ids but the question code needs to also have a unique id by which to identify all these attempts. Hence a module, when creating a new attempt, calls this function and stores the return value in the 'uniqueid' field of its attempts table.

function question_new_attempt_uniqueid($modulename = 'quiz') {
  global $CFG;
  $attempt = new stdClass();
  $attempt->modulename = $modulename;
  if (!($id = insert_record('question_attempts', $attempt))) {
    error('Could not create new entry in question_attempts table');
  return $id;
