mysqli_fetch_lengths

Returns the lengths of the columns of the current row in the result set (PHP 5)
array mysqli_fetch_lengths ( mysqli_result result )

Procedural style:

Object oriented style (property):

mysqli_result {
  array lengths ;
}

The mysqli_fetch_lengths() function returns an array containing the lengths of every column of the current row within the result set.

Parameters

result

Procedural style only: A result set identifier returned by mysqli_query(), mysqli_store_result() or mysqli_use_result().

Return Values

An array of integers representing the size of each column (not including any terminating null characters). FALSE if an error occurred.

mysqli_fetch_lengths() is valid only for the current row of the result set. It returns FALSE if you call it before calling mysqli_fetch_row/array/object or after retrieving all rows in the result.

Examples

Example 1499. 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 * from Country ORDER BY Code LIMIT 1";

if (
$result = $mysqli->query($query)) {

   
$row = $result->fetch_row();

   
/* display column lengths */
   
foreach ($result->lengths as $i => $val) {
       
printf("Field %2d has Length %2d\n", $i+1, $val);
   }
   
$result->close();
}

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>


Example 1500. 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 * from Country ORDER BY Code LIMIT 1";

if (
$result = mysqli_query($link, $query)) {

   
$row = mysqli_fetch_row($result);

   
/* display column lengths */
   
foreach (mysqli_fetch_lengths($result) as $i => $val) {
       
printf("Field %2d has Length %2d\n", $i+1, $val);
   }
   
mysqli_free_result($result);
}

/* close connection */
mysqli_close($link);
?>


The above example will output:

Field  1 has Length  3
Field  2 has Length  5
Field  3 has Length 13
Field  4 has Length  9
Field  5 has Length  6
Field  6 has Length  1
Field  7 has Length  6
Field  8 has Length  4
Field  9 has Length  6
Field 10 has Length  6
Field 11 has Length  5
Field 12 has Length 44
Field 13 has Length  7
Field 14 has Length  3
Field 15 has Length  2
