PHP and MySQL Handling NULL Example

PHP and MySQL Handling NULL Example

You can use the if…else condition to prepare a query based on the NULL value.

The following example takes the tutorial_count from outside and then compares it with the value available in the table.

Example

Copy and paste the following example as mysql_example.php −

<html>
   <head>
      <title>Handling NULL</title>
   </head>
   <body>
      <?php
         $dbhost = 'localhost';
         $dbuser = 'root';
         $dbpass = 'root@123';
         $dbname = 'TUTORIALS';
         $mysqli = new mysqli($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass, $dbname);
         $tutorial_count = null;
         if($mysqli->connect_errno ) {
            printf("Connect failed: %s<br />", $mysqli->connect_error);
            exit();
         }
         printf('Connected successfully.<br />');
         if( isset($tutorial_count )) {
            $sql = 'SELECT tutorial_author, tutorial_count
               FROM  tcount_tbl
               WHERE tutorial_count = ' + $tutorial_count;
         } else {
            $sql = 'SELECT tutorial_author, tutorial_count
               FROM  tcount_tbl
               WHERE tutorial_count IS NULL';
         }
         $result = $mysqli->query($sql);
         if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
            while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
               printf("Author: %s, Count: %d <br />",
                  $row["tutorial_author"],
                  $row["tutorial_count"]);
            }
         } else {
            printf('No record found.<br />');
         }
         $mysqli->close();
