PDOStatement::setFetchMode --  Set the default fetch mode for this statement


bool PDOStatement::setFetchMode ( int mode )

bool PDOStatement::setFetchMode ( int PDO::FETCH_COLUMN, int colno )

bool PDOStatement::setFetchMode ( int PDO::FETCH_CLASS, string classname, array ctorargs )

bool PDOStatement::setFetchMode ( int PDO::FETCH_INTO, object object )



The fetch mode must be one of the PDO::FETCH_* constants.

Return Values

Returns 1 on success or FALSE on failure.


Example 1. Setting the fetch mode

The following example demonstrates how PDOStatement::setFetchMode() changes the default fetch mode for a PDOStatement object.

$sql = 'SELECT name, colour, calories FROM fruit';
try {
  $stmt = $dbh->query($sql);
  $result = $stmt->setFetchMode(PDO::FETCH_NUM);
  while ($row = $stmt->fetch()) {
    print $row[0] . "\t" . $row[1] . "\t" . $row[2] . "\n";
catch (PDOException $e) {
  print $e->getMessage();

The above example will output:

apple   red     150
banana  yellow  250
orange  orange  300
kiwi    brown   75
lemon   yellow  25
pear    green   150
watermelon      pink    90
