Copyright 1997-2014 the PHP Documentation Group.

Warning

This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:

mysqli_fetch_object
PDOStatement::fetch(PDO::FETCH_OBJ)

Description

object mysql_fetch_object(resource result,
                          string class_name,
                          array params);

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.

class_name

The name of the class to instantiate, set the properties of and return. If not specified, a stdClass object is returned.

params

An optional array of parameters to pass to the constructor for class_name objects.

Return Values

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

    echo $row->user_id;
    echo $row->fullname;
}
mysql_free_result($result);
?>

    


Example 5.25 mysql_fetch_object example


<?php
class foo {
    public $name;
}

mysql_connect("hostname", "user", "password");
mysql_select_db("mydb");

$result = mysql_query("select name from mytable limit 1");
$obj = mysql_fetch_object($result, 'foo');
var_dump($obj);
?>

    


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 the PHP NULL value.
