Switching delete to write a 1 in hidden column

I don’t want to delete row. I just want to hide it.

so right now, I have 6/11 column names as param when I have selected a row

Param = {
 "ColumnName": self.parent.parent.getchild("Table".props.selection.data[0].Columnname,
.
.
.
"ColumnNameN": self.parent.parent.getchild("Table".props.selection.data[0].ColumnnameN,

}
system.db.runNamedQuery("DeleteSelectedRow", params)

I plan to add a column of Hidden, and I need a script to write a 1 to this column instead of deleting the row.
I just do an insert into query right?
use the params to determine the row in the where clause, and insert my 1 value into the hidden column right?

No, updating a value in an existing row is an UPDATE query. INSERT makes new rows.

Thanks

a button that passes the selected parameters to run an update query is not opening my page up to injection attack right?

In my other queries I can say in the where clause hidden = 0, but will I have to place hidden in the select and then make a subquery to make the query not show that column? Edit: I tested, I can just place it in the where

No, a column can be in the WHERE clause without being in the SELECT item list.

the button runs the script, but the script is never accessible from the page right?
So no risk of injection attack if the button runs an update ?

You are using value parameters in Named Queries? Or “Prep” updates? Then you are fine.

I use runNamedQuery and pass the parameters, but the query will be an update type to write the value 1 to the Hidden column which is a bit datatype

system.db.runNamedQuery("HideSelectedRow", params)
