mysql_fetch_object() retrieves a row of data from a result handle returned by mysql_db_query() or mysql_query() . The data is returned as an object. After the data is retrieved, the result handle's internal pointer is advanced one position.
The column names are used as property names for the object. If column names are duplicated, the data in the last column in the query sharing the name overwrites the value of the other properties. To access data from these types of queries, use mysql_fetch_row() .
Example 808. Demonstrate how mysql_fetch_array() retrieves data from a query handle
<pre> <?php // Included code that connects to a MySQL server and sets a default database // See the MySQL Functions chapter introduction for the source code for the file include ('mysql_connect.inc.php'); // Make a simple SELECT query $query = "SELECT * FROM user ORDER BY login"; $mysql_result = @ mysql_query ($query) or die ("Query '$query' failed with error message: \"" . mysql_error () . '"'); // Show the default behavior of mysql_fetch_array() // Grab one row from our result handle $row = @ mysql_fetch_object ($mysql_result) or die ("Try a different query - this one did not return any rows."); // Display the contents of the object returned by mysql_fetch_object() print_r ($row); ?> </pre>
