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 all columns */
    
while ($finfo = $result->fetch_field()) {

        
/* get fieldpointer offset */
        
$currentfield = $result->current_field;

        
printf("Column %d:\n", $currentfield);
        
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 all fields */
    
while ($finfo = mysqli_fetch_field($result)) {

        
/* get fieldpointer offset */
        
$currentfield = mysqli_field_tell($result);

        
printf("Column %d:\n", $currentfield);
        
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 example will output:

Column 1:
Name:     Name
Table:    Country
max. Len: 11
Flags:    1
Type:     254

Column 2:
Name:     SurfaceArea
Table:    Country
max. Len: 10
Flags:    32769
Type:     4
