SQLiteDatabase::fetchColumnTypes

(PHP 5 < 5.4.0)

sqlite_fetch_column_types -- SQLiteDatabase::fetchColumnTypes Return an array of column types from a particular table

Description

array sqlite_fetch_column_types ( string $table_name , resource $dbhandle [, int $result_type = SQLITE_ASSOC ] )

Object oriented style (method):

public array SQLiteDatabase::fetchColumnTypes ( string $table_name [, int $result_type = SQLITE_ASSOC ] )

sqlite_fetch_column_types() returns an array of column data types from the specified table_name table.

Parameters

table_name

The table name to query.

dbhandle

The SQLite Database resource; returned from sqlite_open() when used procedurally. This parameter is not required when using the object-oriented method.

result_type

The optional result_type parameter accepts a constant and determines how the returned array will be indexed. Using SQLITE_ASSOC will return only associative indices (named fields) while SQLITE_NUM will return only numerical indices (ordinal field numbers). SQLITE_ASSOC is the default for this function.

Return Values

Returns an array of column data types; FALSE on error.

The column names returned by SQLITE_ASSOC and SQLITE_BOTH will be case-folded according to the value of the sqlite.assoc_case configuration option.

Examples

Example #1 Procedural example

<?php
$db 
sqlite_open('mysqlitedb');
sqlite_query($db'CREATE TABLE foo (bar varchar(10), arf text)');
$cols sqlite_fetch_column_types('foo'$dbSQLITE_ASSOC);

foreach (
$cols as $column => $type) {
    echo 
"Column: $column  Type: $type\n";
}
?>

Example #2 Object-oriented example

<?php
$db 
= new SQLiteDatabase('mysqlitedb');
$db->query('CREATE TABLE foo (bar varchar(10), arf text)');
$cols $db->fetchColumnTypes('foo'SQLITE_ASSOC);

foreach (
$cols as $column => $type) {
    echo 
"Column: $column  Type: $type\n";

If I (OO version) try to add the contant SQLITE_ASSOC, (exactly as listed in the above example) it generates the following error:

SQLiteDatabase::fetchColumnTypes() expects exactly 1 parameter, 2 given in C:\....

If I remove it completely, it returns the associative array I expected.

The problem with the permanently locked database file when using this function still seems to exist in PHP 5.0.3 (tested on win32).

However, you can get all the information you need about the fields of a table by using this query:

PRAGMA table_info(name_of_your_table);

This function, and the OO version, is bugged in PHP <= 5.0.1, locking the database until you restart the webserver.
