(PHP 5)

mysqli_stmt_bind_param

(no version information, might be only in CVS)

stmt->bind_param -- Binds variables to a prepared statement as parameters

Description

Procedural style:

bool mysqli_stmt_bind_param ( mysqli_stmt stmt, string types, mixed &var1 [, mixed &...] )

Object oriented style (method):

class mysqli_stmt {

bool bind_param ( string types, mixed &var1 [, mixed &...] )

}

mysqli_stmt_bind_param() is used to bind variables for the parameter markers in the SQL statement that was passed to mysqli_prepare(). The string types contains one or more characters which specify the types for the corresponding bind variables

Table 1. Type specification chars

CharacterDescription
icorresponding variable has type integer
dcorresponding variable has type double
scorresponding variable has type string
bcorresponding variable is a blob and will be send in packets

Note: If data size of a variable exceeds max. allowed packet size (max_allowed_packet), you have to specify b in types and use mysqli_stmt_send_long_data() to send the data in packets.

The number of variables and length of string types must match the parameters in the statement.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example 1. Object oriented style

<?php
$mysqli
= new mysqli('localhost', 'my_user', 'my_password', 'world');

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

$stmt = $mysqli->prepare("INSERT INTO CountryLanguage VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)");
$stmt->bind_param('sssd', $code, $language, $official, $percent);

$code = 'DEU';
$language = 'Bavarian';
$official = "F";
$percent = 11.2;

/* execute prepared statement */
$stmt->execute();

printf("%d Row inserted.\n", $stmt->affected_rows);

/* close statement and connection */
$stmt->close();

/* Clean up table CountryLanguage */
$mysqli->query("DELETE FROM CountryLanguage WHERE Language='Bavarian'");
printf("%d Row deleted.\n", $mysqli->affected_rows);

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>

Example 2. Procedural style

<?php
$link
= mysqli_connect('localhost', 'my_user', 'my_password', 'world');

/* check connection */
if (!$link) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

$stmt = mysqli_prepare($link, "INSERT INTO CountryLanguage VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)");
mysqli_stmt_bind_param($stmt, 'sssd', $code, $language, $official, $percent);

$code = 'DEU';
$language = 'Bavarian';
$official = "F";
$percent = 11.2;

/* execute prepared statement */
mysqi_stmt_execute($stmt);

printf("%d Row inserted.\n", mysqli_stmt_affected_rows($stmt));

/* close statement and connection */
mysqli_stmt_close($stmt);

/* Clean up table CountryLanguage */
mysqli_query($link, "DELETE FROM CountryLanguage WHERE Language='Bavarian'");
printf("%d Row deleted.\n", mysqli_affected_rows($link));

/* close connection */
mysqli_close($link);
?>

The above example will output:

1 Row inserted.
1 Row deleted.
