mysql_tablename

Get table name of field (PHP 4, PHP 5, PECL mysql:1.0)
string mysql_tablename ( resource result, int i )

Retrieves the table name from a result.

This function deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue a SQL SHOW TABLES [FROM db_name] [LIKE 'pattern'] statement instead.

Parameters

result

A result pointer resource that's returned from mysql_list_tables().

i

The integer index (row/table number)

Return Values

The name of the table on success, or FALSE on failure.

Use the mysql_tablename() function to traverse this result pointer, or any function for result tables, such as mysql_fetch_array().

Examples

Example 1464. mysql_tablename() example

<?php
mysql_connect
("localhost", "mysql_user", "mysql_password");
$result = mysql_list_tables("mydb");
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
for (
$i = 0; $i < $num_rows; $i++) {
   echo
"Table: ", mysql_tablename($result, $i), "\n";
}

mysql_free_result($result);
?>


Notes

Note:

The mysql_num_rows() function may be used to determine the number of tables in the result pointer.
