mysqli::$insert_id

mysqli_insert_id

(PHP 5)

mysqli::$insert_id -- mysqli_insert_idReturns the auto generated id used in the last query

Description

Object oriented style

Procedural style

mixed mysqli_insert_id ( mysqli $link )

The mysqli_insert_id() function returns the ID generated by a query on a table with a column having the AUTO_INCREMENT attribute. If the last query wasn't an INSERT or UPDATE statement or if the modified table does not have a column with the AUTO_INCREMENT attribute, this function will return zero.

Note:

Performing an INSERT or UPDATE statement using the LAST_INSERT_ID() function will also modify the value returned by the mysqli_insert_id() function.

Parameters

link

Procedural style only: A link identifier returned by mysqli_connect() or mysqli_init()

Return Values

The value of the AUTO_INCREMENT field that was updated by the previous query. Returns zero if there was no previous query on the connection or if the query did not update an AUTO_INCREMENT value.

Note:

If the number is greater than maximal int value, mysqli_insert_id() will return a string.

Examples

Example #1 $mysqli->insert_id example

Object oriented style

<?php
$mysqli 
= new mysqli("localhost""my_user""my_password""world");

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

$mysqli->query("CREATE TABLE myCity LIKE City");

$query "INSERT INTO myCity VALUES (NULL, 'Stuttgart', 'DEU', 'Stuttgart', 617000)";
$mysqli->query($query);

printf ("New Record has id %d.\n"$mysqli->insert_id);

/* drop table */
$mysqli->query("DROP TABLE myCity");

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>

Procedural style

<?php
$link 
mysqli_connect("localhost""my_user""my_password""world");

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

mysqli_query($link"CREATE TABLE myCity LIKE City");

$query "INSERT INTO myCity VALUES (NULL, 'Stuttgart', 'DEU', 'Stuttgart', 617000)";
mysqli_query($link$query);

printf ("New Record has id %d.\n"mysqli_insert_id($link));

/* drop table */
mysqli_query($link"DROP TABLE myCity");

/* close connection */
mysqli_close($link);
?>

The above examples will output:

New Record has id 1.
