mysqli_result::fetch_object

mysqli_fetch_object

(PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8)

mysqli_result::fetch_object -- mysqli_fetch_objectFetch the next row of a result set as an object

Description

Object-oriented style

public mysqli_result::fetch_object(string $class = "stdClass", array $constructor_args = []): object|null|false

Procedural style

mysqli_fetch_object(mysqli_result $result, string $class = "stdClass", array $constructor_args = []): object|null|false

Fetches one row of data from the result set and returns it as an object, where each property represents the name of the result set's column. Each subsequent call to this function will return the next row within the result set, or null if there are no more rows.

If two or more columns of the result have the same name, the last column will take precedence and overwrite any previous data. To access multiple columns with the same name, mysqli_fetch_row() may be used to fetch the numerically indexed array, or aliases may be used in the SQL query select list to give columns different names.

Note: This function sets the properties of the object before calling the object constructor.

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

Note: This function sets NULL fields to the PHP null value.

Parameters

result

Procedural style only: A mysqli_result object returned by mysqli_query(), mysqli_store_result(), mysqli_use_result() or mysqli_stmt_get_result().

class

The name of the class to instantiate, set the properties of and return. If not specified, a stdClass object is returned.

constructor_args

An optional array of parameters to pass to the constructor for class objects.

Return Values

Returns an object representing the fetched row, where each property represents the name of the result set's column, null if there are no more rows in the result set, or false on failure.

Errors/Exceptions

A ValueError is thrown when the constructor_args is non-empty with the class not having constructor.

Changelog

Version Description
8.3.0 Now throws a ValueError exception when the constructor_args is non-empty with the class not having constructor; previously an Exception was thrown.
8.0.0 constructor_args now accepts [] for constructors with 0 parameters; previously an exception was thrown.

Examples

Example #1 mysqli_result::fetch_object() example

Object-oriented style

<?php

mysqli_report
(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR | MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);
$mysqli = new mysqli("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "world");

$query = "SELECT Name, CountryCode FROM City ORDER BY ID DESC";

$result = $mysqli->query($query);

while (
$obj = $result->fetch_object()) {
printf("%s (%s)\n", $obj->Name, $obj->CountryCode);
}

Procedural style

<?php

mysqli_report
(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR | MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);
$link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "world");

$query = "SELECT Name, CountryCode FROM City ORDER BY ID DESC";

$result = mysqli_query($link, $query);

while (
$obj = mysqli_fetch_object($result)) {
printf("%s (%s)\n", $obj->Name, $obj->CountryCode);
}

The above examples will output something similar to:

Pueblo (USA)
Arvada (USA)
Cape Coral (USA)
Green Bay (USA)
Santa Clara (USA)

As indicated in the user comments of the mysql_fetch_object, it is important to realize that class fields get values assigned to them BEFORE the constructor is called.
For example;
<?php

class Employee
{
private
$id;

public function
__construct($id = 0)
{
$this->id = $id;
}
}

// some code for creating a database connection... i.e. mysqli object
....
$result = $con->query("select id, name from employees");
$anEmployee = $result->fetch_object("Employee");
?>
will result in the ID being 0 because it is overridden by the constructor. Therefore, it is useful to check if the class field is already set.
I.e.
<?php
class Employee
{
private
$id;

public function
__construct($id = 0)
{
if (!
$this->id)
{
$this->id = $id
}
}
}
?>
Also note that the fields which will be assigned by fetch_object are case sensitive. If your table has the field "ID", it will result in the class field $ID being set. A simple work-around is to use aliases. I.e. "SELECT *, ID as id FROM myTable"
I hope this helps some people.

Please mind the difference between objects and arrays in PHP>=5: arrays are by value while objects are by reference.

<?
$o = mysqli_fetch_object($res);
$o1 = $o;
$o1->value = 10;

$a = mysqli_fetch_array($res);
$a1 = $a;
$a1['value'] = 10;

echo $o->value; // 10
echo $a['value']; // (original value from db)
?>

Should same behaviour be intended, the object needs to be cloned:

<?
$o1 = clone $o;
?>

Since 5.6.21 and PHP 7.0.6

mysqli_fetch_object() sets the properties of the object AFTER calling the object constructor. Not BEFORE as was in previous versions.

So behaviour has changed. Seems a bug but not sure if was done intentionally.

Note that if you supply a class that has a __set() magic method defined in it, that method will be called for any properties that are not defined in your class. For example:

<?php

class SomeClass {
private
$id;
public
$partner_name;
public function
__set( $name, $value ) {
echo
"__set was called! Name = $name\n";
$this->$name = $value;
}
}

$db = new mysqli( 'localhost', 'Username', 'Password', 'DbName' );
$result = $db->query( 'SELECT id, partner_name, partner_type FROM submissions' );
$object = $result->fetch_object( 'SomeClass' );

?>

Produces the following output:

__set was called! Name = partner_type

I don't know why no one talk about this.
fetch_object is very powerful since you can instantiate an Object which has the methods you wanna have.

You can try like this..

<?php
class PowerfulVO extends AbstractWhatEver {

public
$field1;
private
$field2; // note : private is ok

public function method(){
// method in this class
}
}

$sql = "SELECT * FROM table ..."
$mysqli = new mysqli(........);
$result = $mysqli->query($sql);
$vo = $result->fetch_object('PowerfulVO');
?>

Note : if the field is not defined in the class, fetch_object will add this field for you as public.

The method is very powerful, especially if you want to use a VO design pattern or class mapping feature with Flex Remoting Object( Of course, you need to have ZendAMF or AMFPHP ..framework)

Hope this help and open new possibilities for you
