Get table name of field


mysql_tablename

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_tablenameGet table name of field

Description

string mysql_tablename ( resource $result , int $i )

Retrieves the table name from a result.

This function is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue an SQL SHOW TABLES [FROM db_name] [LIKE 'pattern'] statement instead.

Parameters

result

A result pointer resource that's returned from mysql_list_tables().

i

The integer index (row/table number)

Return Values

The name of the table on success or FALSE on failure.

Use the mysql_tablename() function to traverse this result pointer, or any function for result tables, such as mysql_fetch_array().

Examples

Example #1 mysql_tablename() example

<?php
mysql_connect
("localhost""mysql_user""mysql_password");
$result mysql_list_tables("mydb");
$num_rows mysql_num_rows($result);
for (
$i 0$i $num_rows$i++) {
    echo 
"Table: "mysql_tablename($result$i), "\n";
}

mysql_free_result($result);
?>

Notes

Note:

The mysql_num_rows() function may be used to determine the number of tables in the result pointer.
