Tutorial: Create PHP alternative for mysql_result in MySQLi (PHP)

Create PHP alternative for mysql_result in MySQLi

If you are migrating from PHP 5.5 to a newer version of PHP - you might be interested in a MySQL to MySQLi/PDO migration guide - and use the function mysql_result() you might get a notice (in case your error_reporting is set to show deprecated warnings) that this function is deprecate. Since there is no 1:1 alternative you can build your own alternative in MySQLi like shown below:










function mysqli_result($result, $row, $field = 0) {
// Adjust the result pointer to that specific row
$result->data_seek($row);
// Fetch result array
$data = $result->fetch_array();

return $data[$field];
}
