CodeIgniter activerecord, retrieve last insert id?

Are there any options to get the last insert id of a new record in CodeIgniter?

$last_id = $this->db->insert('tablename',
array('firstcolumn' => 'value',
'secondcolumn' => 'value')

Considering the table consits of fields id (autoincrement) firstcolumn and secondcolumn.

This way you can use the insert id in the following code.


Shame on me...

I looked at the user guide and the first function is $this->db->insert_id();

This also works with activerecord inserts...
