SQLite3::querySingleExecutes a query and returns a single result


public mixed SQLite3::querySingle ( string $query [, bool $entire_row = false ] )

Executes a query and returns a single result.



The SQL query to execute.


By default, querySingle() returns the value of the first column returned by the query. If entire_row is TRUE, then it returns an array of the entire first row.

Return Values

Returns the value of the first column of results or an array of the entire first row (if entire_row is TRUE).

If the query is valid but no results are returned, then NULL will be returned if entire_row is FALSE, otherwise an empty array is returned.

Invalid or failing queries will return FALSE.


Example #1 SQLite3::querySingle() example

= new SQLite3('mysqlitedb.db');

var_dump($db->querySingle('SELECT username FROM user WHERE userid=1'));
print_r($db->querySingle('SELECT username, email FROM user WHERE userid=1'true));

The above example will output something similar to:

string(5) "Scott"
    [username] => Scott
    [email] =>
