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();
}

$query "SELECT Name, SurfaceArea from Country ORDER BY Code LIMIT 5";

if (
$result $mysqli->query($query)) {

    
/* Get field information for 2nd column */
    
$result->field_seek(1);
    
$finfo $result->fetch_field();

    
printf("Name:     %s\n"$finfo->name);
    
printf("Table:    %s\n"$finfo->table);
    
printf("max. Len: %d\n"$finfo->max_length);
    
printf("Flags:    %d\n"$finfo->flags);
    
printf("Type:     %d\n\n"$finfo->type);

    
$result->close();
}

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

Example #2 Procedural style

<?php
$link 
mysqli_connect("localhost""my_user""my_password""world");

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

$query "SELECT Name, SurfaceArea from Country ORDER BY Code LIMIT 5";

if (
$result mysqli_query($link$query)) {

    
/* Get field information for 2nd column */
    
mysqli_field_seek($result1);
    
$finfo mysqli_fetch_field($result);

    
printf("Name:     %s\n"$finfo->name);
    
printf("Table:    %s\n"$finfo->table);
    
printf("max. Len: %d\n"$finfo->max_length);
    
printf("Flags:    %d\n"$finfo->flags);
    
printf("Type:     %d\n\n"$finfo->type);

    
mysqli_free_result($result);
}

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

The above examples will output:

Name:     SurfaceArea
Table:    Country
max. Len: 10
Flags:    32769
Type:     4
