  • mysql_field_seek

    Set result pointer to a specified field offset


This extension was deprecated in PHP 5.5.0, and it was removed in PHP 7.0.0. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:

PDOStatement::fetch using the cursor_orientation and offset parameters


bool mysql_field_seek(resource result,
                      int field_offset);

Seeks to the specified field offset. If the next call to mysql_fetch_field doesn't include a field offset, the field offset specified in mysql_field_seek will be returned.



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


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

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
