pg_result_error Get error message associated with result


string pg_result_error ( resource $result )

pg_result_error() returns any error message associated with the result resource. Therefore, the user has a better chance of getting the correct error message than with pg_last_error().

The function pg_result_error_field() can give much greater detail on result errors than pg_result_error().

Because pg_query() returns FALSE if the query fails, you must use pg_send_query() and pg_get_result() to get the result handle.



PostgreSQL query result resource, returned by pg_query(), pg_query_params() or pg_execute() (among others).

Return Values

Returns a string. Returns empty string if there is no error. If there is an error associated with the result parameter, returns FALSE.


Example #1 pg_result_error() example

pg_connect("dbname=publisher") or die("Could not connect");

  if (!
pg_connection_busy($dbconn)) {
pg_send_query($dbconn"select * from doesnotexist;");
$res1 pg_get_result($dbconn);
