oci_bind_array_by_name

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.2, PECL OCI8 >= 1.2.0)

oci_bind_array_by_nameBinds a PHP array to an Oracle PL/SQL array parameter

Description

bool oci_bind_array_by_name ( resource $statement , string $name , array &$var_array , int $max_table_length [, int $max_item_length = -1 [, int $type = SQLT_AFC ]] )

Binds the PHP array var_array to the Oracle placeholder name, which points to an Oracle PL/SQL array. Whether it will be used for input or output will be determined at run-time.

Parameters

statement

A valid OCI statement identifier.

name

The Oracle placeholder.

var_array

An array.

max_table_length

Sets the maximum length both for incoming and result arrays.

max_item_length

Sets maximum length for array items. If not specified or equals to -1, oci_bind_array_by_name() will find the longest element in the incoming array and will use it as the maximum length.

type

Should be used to set the type of PL/SQL array items. See list of available types below:

  • SQLT_NUM - for arrays of NUMBER.

  • SQLT_INT - for arrays of INTEGER (Note: INTEGER it is actually a synonym for NUMBER(38), but SQLT_NUM type won't work in this case even though they are synonyms).

  • SQLT_FLT - for arrays of FLOAT.

  • SQLT_AFC - for arrays of CHAR.

  • SQLT_CHR - for arrays of VARCHAR2.

  • SQLT_VCS - for arrays of VARCHAR.

  • SQLT_AVC - for arrays of CHARZ.

  • SQLT_STR - for arrays of STRING.

  • SQLT_LVC - for arrays of LONG VARCHAR.

  • SQLT_ODT - for arrays of DATE.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
