oci_bind_array_by_name

Binds PHP array to Oracle PL/SQL array by name (PHP 5 >= 5.1.2, PECL oci8:1.2.0-1.2.4)
bool oci_bind_array_by_name ( resource statement, string name, array &var_array, int max_table_length [, int max_item_length [, int type]] )

Binds the PHP array var_array to the Oracle placeholder name, which points to Oracle PL/SQL array. Whether it will be used for input or output will be determined at run-time.

Parameters

statement

A valid OCI statement identifier.

name

The Oracle placeholder.

var_array

An array.

max_table_length

Sets the maximum length both for incoming and result arrays.

max_item_length

Sets maximum length for array items. If not specified or equals to -1, oci_bind_array_by_name() will use find the longest element in the incoming array and will use it as maximum length for array items.

type

Should be used to set the type of PL/SQL array items. See list of available types below:

  • SQLT_NUM - for arrays of NUMBER.

  • SQLT_INT - for arrays of INTEGER (Note: INTEGER it is actually a synonym for NUMBER(38), but SQLT_NUM type won't work in this case even though they are synonyms).

  • SQLT_FLT - for arrays of FLOAT.

  • SQLT_AFC - for arrays of CHAR.

  • SQLT_CHR - for arrays of VARCHAR2.

  • SQLT_VCS - for arrays of VARCHAR.

  • SQLT_AVC - for arrays of CHARZ.

  • SQLT_STR - for arrays of STRING.

  • SQLT_LVC - for arrays of LONG VARCHAR.

  • SQLT_ODT - for arrays of DATE.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example 1632. oci_bind_array_by_name() example

<?php

$c

$create = "CREATE TABLE bind_example(name VARCHAR(20))";
$statement = oci_parse($c, $create);
oci_execute($statement);

$create_pkg = "
CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE ARRAYBINDPKG1 AS
 TYPE ARRTYPE IS TABLE OF VARCHAR(20) INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;
 PROCEDURE iobind(c1 IN OUT ARRTYPE);
END ARRAYBINDPKG1;"
;
$statement = oci_parse($c, $create_pkg);
oci_execute($statement);

$create_pkg_body = "
CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY ARRAYBINDPKG1 AS
 CURSOR CUR IS SELECT name FROM bind_example;
 PROCEDURE iobind(c1 IN OUT ARRTYPE) IS
   BEGIN
   FOR i IN 1..5 LOOP
     INSERT INTO bind_example VALUES (c1(i));
   END LOOP;
   IF NOT CUR%ISOPEN THEN
     OPEN CUR;
   END IF;
   FOR i IN REVERSE 1..5 LOOP
     FETCH CUR INTO c1(i);
     IF CUR%NOTFOUND THEN
       CLOSE CUR;
       EXIT;
     END IF;
   END LOOP;
 END iobind;
END ARRAYBINDPKG1;"
;
$statement = oci_parse($c, $create_pkg_body);
oci_execute($statement);

$statement = oci_parse($c, "BEGIN ARRAYBINDPKG1.iobind(:c1); END;");

$array = array("one", "two", "three", "four", "five");

oci_bind_array_by_name($statement, ":c1", $array, 5, -1, SQLT_CHR);

oci_execute($statement);

var_dump($array);
