Please note that this method requires the mysqlnd driver. Othervise you will get this error: Call to undefined method mysqli_stmt::get_result()

I went through a lot of trouble on a server where mysqlnd wasn't available, and had a lot of headaches.

If you don't have mysqlnd installed/loaded whatever, you will get an undefined reference when trying to call "mysqli_stmt_get_result()".

I wrote my own mysqli_stmt_get_result() and a mysqli_result_fetch_array() to go with it.

<?php
class iimysqli_result
{
    public
$stmt, $nCols;
}   

function
iimysqli_stmt_get_result($stmt)
{
   
/**    EXPLANATION:
     * We are creating a fake "result" structure to enable us to have
     * source-level equivalent syntax to a query executed via
     * mysqli_query().
     *
     *    $stmt = mysqli_prepare($conn, "");
     *    mysqli_bind_param($stmt, "types", ...);
     *
     *    $param1 = 0;
     *    $param2 = 'foo';
     *    $param3 = 'bar';
     *    mysqli_execute($stmt);
     *    $result _mysqli_stmt_get_result($stmt);
     *        [ $arr = _mysqli_result_fetch_array($result);
     *            || $assoc = _mysqli_result_fetch_assoc($result); ]
     *    mysqli_stmt_close($stmt);
     *    mysqli_close($conn);
     *
     * At the source level, there is no difference between this and mysqlnd.
     **/
   
$metadata = mysqli_stmt_result_metadata($stmt);
   
$ret = new iimysqli_result;
    if (!
$ret) return NULL;

   
$ret->nCols = mysqli_num_fields($metadata);
   
$ret->stmt = $stmt;

   
mysqli_free_result($metadata);
    return
$ret;
}

function
iimysqli_result_fetch_array(&$result)
{
   
$ret = array();
   
$code = "return mysqli_stmt_bind_result(\$result->stmt ";

    for (
$i=0; $i<$result->nCols; $i++)
    {
       
$ret[$i] = NULL;
       
$code .= ", \$ret['" .$i ."']";
    };

   
$code .= ");";
    if (!eval(
$code)) { return NULL; };

   
// This should advance the "$stmt" cursor.
   
if (!mysqli_stmt_fetch($result->stmt)) { return NULL; };

   
// Return the array we built.
   
return $ret;
}
?>

Hope this helps someone.
