MongoCursor::fieldsSets the fields for a query


public MongoCursor MongoCursor::fields ( array $f )

Fields are specified by "fieldname" : bool. TRUE indicates that a field should be returned, FALSE indicates that it should not be returned. You can also use 1 and 0 instead of TRUE and FALSE.

Thus, to return only the "summary" field, one could say:


->fields(array("summary" => true));


To return all fields except the "hidden" field:


->fields(array("hidden" => false));




Fields to return (or not return).

Return Values

Returns this cursor.


Throws MongoCursorException if this cursor has started iterating or a scalar argument is given.
