mysql_field_type

Get the type of the specified field in a result (PHP 4, PHP 5, PECL mysql:1.0)
string mysql_field_type ( resource result, int field_offset )

mysql_field_type() is similar to the mysql_field_name() function. The arguments are identical, but the field type is returned instead.

Parameters

result

The result resource that is being evaluated. This result comes from a call to mysql_query().

field_offset

The numerical field offset. The field_offset starts at 0. If field_offset does not exist, an error of level E_WARNING is also issued.

Return Values

The returned field type will be one of "int", "real", "string", "blob", and others as detailed in the » MySQL documentation.

Examples

Example 1440. mysql_field_type() example

<?php
mysql_connect
("localhost", "mysql_username", "mysql_password");
mysql_select_db("mysql");
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM func");
$fields = mysql_num_fields($result);
$rows   = mysql_num_rows($result);
$table  = mysql_field_table($result, 0);
echo
"Your '" . $table . "' table has " . $fields . " fields and " . $rows . " record(s)\n";
echo
"The table has the following fields:\n";
for (
$i=0; $i < $fields; $i++) {
   
$type  = mysql_field_type($result, $i);
   
$name  = mysql_field_name($result, $i);
   
$len   = mysql_field_len($result, $i);
   
$flags = mysql_field_flags($result, $i);
   echo
$type . " " . $name . " " . $len . " " . $flags . "\n";
}
mysql_free_result($result);
mysql_close();
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Your 'func' table has 4 fields and 1 record(s)
The table has the following fields:
string name 64 not_null primary_key binary
int ret 1 not_null
string dl 128 not_null
string type 9 not_null enum
