ocibindbyname — Bind a PHP variable to an Oracle placeholder by name


int ocibindbyname(stmt, name, variable, maxlength[, type]);
int stmt: Statement handler
string name: Oracle placeholder
mixed variable: PHP variable
int maxlength: Maximum bind length
int type (optional): type explanation goes here


TRUE on success, FALSE on error


Bind a PHP variable specified by variable to an Oracle placeholder by name .

The length parameter sets the maximum length for the bind. If length is defined as -1, the function will use the current length of variable to set the maximum length.

When attempting to bind an abstract datatype such as a BFILE, LOB or ROWID it must be allocated first using ocinewdescriptor() and length should be set to -1.

type specifies what kind of descriptor is to be used. Possible values are: OCI_B_FILE (Binary-File), OCI_B_CFILE (Character-File), OCI_B_CLOB (Character-LOB), OCI_B_BLOB (Binary-LOB) and OCI_B_ROWID (ROWID).


Since versions 3.0.4 and 4.0


Example 848. Insert using bound columns

if (!$db = @ocinlogon("dev","dev", "ORCL")) {
    $error = ocierror();
    printf("There was an error connecting. Error was: %s", $error["message"]);

$data = array("" => "12345", "" => "67890");

$stmt = ociparse($db,"INSERT INTO phone_numbers (EMAIL, PHONE_NUMBER) VALUES (:email,:phone)");
ocibindbyname($stmt,":phone", $phone, 20);

while (list($email,$phone) = each($data)) {
