PHP mysql_fetch_array() Function


PHP MySQL Reference Complete PHP MySQL Reference

Definition and Usage

The mysql_fetch_array() function returns a row from a recordset as an associative array and/or a numeric array.

This function gets a row from the mysql_query() function and returns an array on success, or FALSE on failure or when there are no more rows.

Syntax

mysql_fetch_array(data,array_type)

Parameter Description
data Required. Specifies which data pointer to use. The data pointer is the result from the mysql_query() function
array_type Optional. Specifies what kind of array to return.

Possible values:

  • MYSQL_ASSOC - Associative array
  • MYSQL_NUM - Numeric array
  • MYSQL_BOTH - Default. Both associative and numeric array


Tips and Notes

Note: After the data is retrieved, this function moves to the next row in the recordset. Each subsequent call to mysql_fetch_array() returns the next row in the recordset.

Tip: Field names returned by this function are case-sensitive.


Example

<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost", "peter", "abc123");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

$db_selected = mysql_select_db("test_db",$con);
$sql = "SELECT * from Person WHERE Lastname='Refsnes'";
$result = mysql_query($sql,$con);
print_r(mysql_fetch_array($result));

mysql_close($con);
?>

The output of the code above could be:

Array
(
[0] => Refsnes
[LastName] => Refsnes
[1] => Kai Jim
[FirstName] => Kai Jim
[2] => Taugata 2
[Address] => Taugata 2
[3] => 22
[Age] => 22
)
