my_ulonglong mysql_stmt_num_rows(MYSQL_STMT *stmt)

Description

Returns the number of rows in the result set.

The use of mysql_stmt_num_rows() depends on whether you used mysql_stmt_store_result() to buffer the entire result set in the statement handle. If you use mysql_stmt_store_result(), mysql_stmt_num_rows() may be called immediately. Otherwise, the row count is unavailable unless you count the rows as you fetch them.

mysql_stmt_num_rows() is intended for use with statements that return a result set, such as SELECT. For statements such as INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE, the number of affected rows can be obtained with mysql_stmt_affected_rows().

Return Values

The number of rows in the result set.

Errors

None.
