mysql_fetch_object

mysql_fetch_object

(PHP 3, PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_fetch_object -- Fetch a result row as an object

Description

object mysql_fetch_object ( resource result )

Returns an object with properties that correspond to the fetched row and moves the internal data pointer ahead.

Parameters

result

The result resource that is being evaluated. This result comes from a call to mysql_query().

Return Values

Returns an object with properties that correspond to the fetched row, or FALSE if there are no more rows.

mysql_fetch_row() fetches one row of data from the result associated with the specified result identifier. The row is returned as an array. Each result column is stored in an array offset, starting at offset 0.

Examples

Example 1. mysql_fetch_object() example

<?php
mysql_connect
("hostname", "user", "password");
mysql_select_db("mydb");
$result = mysql_query("select * from mytable");
while (
$row = mysql_fetch_object($result)) {
    echo
$row->user_id;
    echo
$row->fullname;
}
mysql_free_result($result);
?>

Example 2. mysql_fetch_object() example

<?php

$row
= mysql_fetch_object($result);

/* this is valid */
echo $row->field;
/* this is invalid */
// echo $row->0;

?>

Notes

Performance: Speed-wise, the function is identical to mysql_fetch_array(), and almost as quick as mysql_fetch_row() (the difference is insignificant).

Note: mysql_fetch_object() is similar to mysql_fetch_array(), with one difference - an object is returned, instead of an array. Indirectly, that means that you can only access the data by the field names, and not by their offsets (numbers are illegal property names).

Note: Field names returned by this function are case-sensitive.

Note: This function sets NULL fields to PHP NULL value.
