mysqli_num_rows

Gets the number of rows in a result (PHP 5)
int mysqli_num_rows ( mysqli_result result )

Procedural style:

Object oriented style (property):

mysqli_result {
  int num_rows ;
}

Returns the number of rows in the result set.

The use of mysqli_num_rows() depends on whether you use buffered or unbuffered result sets. In case you use unbuffered resultsets mysqli_num_rows() will not correct the correct number of rows until all the rows in the result have been retrieved.

Parameters

result

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

Return Values

Returns number of rows in the result set.

Note:

If the number of rows is greater than maximal int value, the number will be returned as a string.

Examples

Example 1531. 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();
}

if (
$result = $mysqli->query("SELECT Code, Name FROM Country ORDER BY Name")) {

   
/* determine number of rows result set */
   
$row_cnt = $result->num_rows;

   
printf("Result set has %d rows.\n", $row_cnt);

   
/* close result set */
   
$result->close();
}

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


Example 1532. 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();
}

if (
$result = mysqli_query($link, "SELECT Code, Name FROM Country ORDER BY Name")) {

   
/* determine number of rows result set */
   
$row_cnt = mysqli_num_rows($result);

   
printf("Result set has %d rows.\n", $row_cnt);

   
/* close result set */
   
mysqli_free_result($result);
}

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


The above example will output:

Result set has 239 rows.
