sqlite_current -- SQLiteResult::current -- SQLiteUnbuffered::currentFetches the current row from a result set as an array


array sqlite_current ( resource $result [, int $result_type = SQLITE_BOTH [, bool $decode_binary = true ]] )

Object oriented style (method):

array SQLiteResult::current ([ int $result_type = SQLITE_BOTH [, bool $decode_binary = true ]] )
array SQLiteUnbuffered::current ([ int $result_type = SQLITE_BOTH [, bool $decode_binary = true ]] )

sqlite_current() is identical to sqlite_fetch_array() except that it does not advance to the next row prior to returning the data; it returns the data from the current position only.



The SQLite result resource. This parameter is not required when using the object-oriented method.


The optional result_type parameter accepts a constant and determines how the returned array will be indexed. Using SQLITE_ASSOC will return only associative indices (named fields) while SQLITE_NUM will return only numerical indices (ordinal field numbers). SQLITE_BOTH will return both associative and numerical indices. SQLITE_BOTH is the default for this function.


When the decode_binary parameter is set to TRUE (the default), PHP will decode the binary encoding it applied to the data if it was encoded using the sqlite_escape_string(). You should normally leave this value at its default, unless you are interoperating with databases created by other sqlite capable applications.

Return Values

Returns an array of the current row from a result set; FALSE if the current position is beyond the final row.

The column names returned by SQLITE_ASSOC and SQLITE_BOTH will be case-folded according to the value of the sqlite.assoc_case configuration option.
