    mysqli_fetch_object

    Fetch the next row of a result set as an object

Description

Object-oriented style

public object|null|false mysqli_result::fetch_object(string class= ="stdClass",
                                                     array constructor_args= =[]);

Procedural style

object|null|false mysqli_fetch_object(mysqli_result result,
                                      string class= ="stdClass",
                                      array constructor_args= =[]);

Fetches one row of data from the result set and returns it as an object, where each property represents the name of the result set's column. Each subsequent call to this function will return the next row within the result set, or null if there are no more rows.

If two or more columns of the result have the same name, the last column will take precedence and overwrite any previous data. To access multiple columns with the same name, mysqli_fetch_row may be used to fetch the numerically indexed array, or aliases may be used in the SQL query select list to give columns different names.

Note

This function sets the properties of the object before calling the object constructor.

Note

Field names returned by this function are case-sensitive.

Note

This function sets NULL fields to the PHP null value.

Parameters

result

Procedural style only: A mysqli_result object returned by mysqli_query, mysqli_store_result, mysqli_use_result or mysqli_stmt_get_result.

class

The name of the class to instantiate, set the properties of and return. If not specified, a stdClass object is returned.

constructor_args

An optional array of parameters to pass to the constructor for class objects.

Return Values

Returns an object representing the fetched row, where each property represents the name of the result set's column, null if there are no more rows in the result set, or false on failure.

Changelog

VersionDescription
8.0.0constructor_args now accepts [] for constructors with 0 parameters; previously an exception was thrown.

Examples

Example 3.119 mysqli_result::fetch_object example

Object-oriented style

<?php

mysqli_report(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR | MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);
$mysqli = new mysqli("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "world");
 
$query = "SELECT Name, CountryCode FROM City ORDER BY ID DESC";

$result = $mysqli->query($query);

/* fetch object array */
while ($obj = $result->fetch_object()) {
    printf("%s (%s)\n", $obj->Name, $obj->CountryCode);
}

Procedural style

<?php

mysqli_report(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR | MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);
$link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "world");

$query = "SELECT Name, CountryCode FROM City ORDER BY ID DESC";

$result = mysqli_query($link, $query);

/* fetch associative array */
while ($obj = mysqli_fetch_object($result)) {
    printf("%s (%s)\n", $obj->Name, $obj->CountryCode);
}

The above examples will output something similar to:

Pueblo (USA)
Arvada (USA)
Cape Coral (USA)
Green Bay (USA)
Santa Clara (USA)
