  • mysqli_result::__construct

    Constructs a mysqli_result object

public mysqli_result::__construct(mysqli mysql,
                                  int result_mode= =MYSQLI_STORE_RESULT);

This method constructs a new mysqli_result object.

It can be used to create the mysqli_result object after calling the mysqli_real_query or mysqli_multi_query function. Constructing the object manually is equivalent to calling the mysqli_store_result or mysqli_use_result function.


Procedural style only: A mysqli object returned by mysqli_connect or mysqli_init


The result mode can be one of 2 constants indicating how the result will be returned from the MySQL server.

MYSQLI_STORE_RESULT (default) - creates a mysqli_result object with buffered result set.

MYSQLI_USE_RESULT - creates a mysqli_result object with unbuffered result set. As long as there are pending records waiting to be fetched, the connection line will be busy and all subsequent calls will return error Commands out of sync. To avoid the error all records must be fetched from the server or the result set must be discarded by calling mysqli_free_result. The connection must remain open for the rows to be fetched.


Example 7.110 Creation of a mysqli_result object

$mysqli = new mysqli("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "world");
/* Select queries return a result set */
$mysqli->real_query("SELECT Name FROM City LIMIT 10");
$result = new mysqli_result($mysqli);
printf("Select returned %d rows.\n", $result->num_rows);

The above examples will output something similar to:

Select returned 10 rows.
