mysql_tablenameGet table name of field

Warning

This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:

  • SQL Query: SHOW TABLES

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().

Changelog

Version Description
5.5.0 The mysql_tablename() function is deprecated, and emits an E_DEPRECATED level error.

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

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