ifx_create_char — Creates an char object


int ifx_create_char(paramter);
string paramter: Character content


char object identifier or FALSE on error


Creates a char datatype for inserting data types into an Informix database. It is possible to create a char datatype which is essentially a loosely typed variable. Infmormix ESQl/C will attempt to convert the data to the correct datatype. In the example below, note how an array is created containing the char object identifier which is then passed to ifx_query() .


Since version 3.0.6 and 4.0


Example 559. Example

$db = ifx_connect("stores7@ol","informix","informix");

// create param id for first char column
$tid = ifx_create_char("This is the text in the first CHAR column.\n");
// create param id for seccond char column
$bid = ifx_create_char("This is the text in the second CHAR column.\n");

// store both param ids in the param param array
$paramarray[0] = $tid;
$paramarray[1] = $bid;

// insert 
$query = "insert into testparams values (0, ?, ?)";                             
$result = ifx_query($query, $db, $paramarray);
