object pg_fetch_object (int result, int row [, int result_type])
Returns: An object with properties that correspond to the fetched row, or false if there are no more rows.
Pg_fetch_object() is similar to pg_fetch_array(), with one difference - an object is returned, instead of an array. Indirectly, that means that you can only access the data by the field names, and not by their offsets (numbers are illegal property names).
The third optional argument result_type in pg_fetch_object() is a constant and can take the following values: PGSQL_ASSOC, PGSQL_NUM, and PGSQL_BOTH.
Note: Result_type was added in PHP 4.0.
Speed-wise, the function is identical to pg_fetch_array(), and almost as quick as pg_fetch_row() (the difference is insignificant).

Example 1. Postgres fetch object
<?php $database = "verlag"; $db_conn = pg_connect ("host=localhost port=5432 dbname=$database"); if (!$db_conn): ?> <H1>Failed connecting to postgres database <?php echo $database ?></H1> <?php exit; endif; $qu = pg_exec ($db_conn, "SELECT * FROM verlag ORDER BY autor"); $row = 0; // postgres needs a row counter other dbs might not while ($data = pg_fetch_object ($qu, $row)): echo $data->autor." ("; echo $data->jahr ."): "; echo $data->titel."<BR>"; $row++; endwhile; ?> <PRE><?php $fields = Array ("autor", "Author"); $fields = Array ("jahr", " Year"); $fields = Array ("titel", " Title"); $row= 0; // postgres needs a row counter other dbs might not while ($data = pg_fetch_object ($qu, $row)): echo "----------\n"; reset ($fields); while (list (,$item) = each ($fields)): echo $item.": ".$data->$item."\n"; endwhile; $row++; endwhile; echo "----------\n"; ?> </PRE> <?php pg_freeResult ($qu); pg_close ($db_conn); ?>
