mssql_bind

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.7, PHP 5, PECL odbtp >= 1.1.1)

mssql_bindAdds a parameter to a stored procedure or a remote stored procedure

Description

bool mssql_bind ( resource $stmt , string $param_name , mixed &$var , int $type [, bool $is_output = false [, bool $is_null = false [, int $maxlen = -1 ]]] )

Binds a parameter to a stored procedure or a remote stored procedure.

Parameters

stmt

Statement resource, obtained with mssql_init().

param_name

The parameter name, as a string.

Note:

You have to include the @ character, like in the T-SQL syntax. See the explanation included in mssql_execute().

var

The PHP variable you'll bind the MSSQL parameter to. It is passed by reference, to retrieve OUTPUT and RETVAL values after the procedure execution.

type

One of: SQLTEXT, SQLVARCHAR, SQLCHAR, SQLINT1, SQLINT2, SQLINT4, SQLBIT, SQLFLT4, SQLFLT8, SQLFLTN.

is_output

Whether the value is an OUTPUT parameter or not. If it's an OUTPUT parameter and you don't mention it, it will be treated as a normal input parameter and no error will be thrown.

is_null

Whether the parameter is NULL or not. Passing the NULL value as var will not do the job.

maxlen

Used with char/varchar values. You have to indicate the length of the data so if the parameter is a varchar(50), the type must be SQLVARCHAR and this value 50.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
