PDO Select Function select database operation using GOModel


GOModel select function executes select query and gets the data from database. You need to specify tablename from which you want to get the data. You can specify columnames to be retrived. You can also specify where condition and all different types of operators like =, !=, IN, NOT IN, LIKE, BETWEEN etc to get data. You can also apply groupby, orderby, having, limit etc. with this function. By default, data is returned in form of associative array, You can specify different types of format of data using the fetchtype; It also parses column name and table name to properly use backtics(`) in order to avoid error due to incorrect way of naming of column/table. If you have used followed naming convention for backtics, then you can set backtick ="" (empty string).

Parameters Details

Details Type Example
$dbTableName - table name, to perform select query string Any valid tablename e.g. "select * from tablename"


                                $GOModel = new GOModel(); //create object of the GOModel class
                                $GOModel->connect("localhost", "root", "", "database");//connect to database
                                /* Select function */

By default, it returns data in associative array format. You can set return type using the fetch mode.


Option Details Example
$GOModel->getLastQuery(); Return last query executed SELECT * FROM `emp` ORDER BY `firstName` LIMIT 0,3
print_r($GOModel->error) Print errors (if any)
$GOModel->totalRows; Total rows returned for select query 10
