PDO Fetch Into

In this tutorial we will study about PDO Fetch Into method in PHP, how to access MySQL using PDO Fetch Into method , How to retrieve data etc. Examples will make this clearer.

PDO Fetch Into:

Like in the previous tutorial, we will deal with OOP concept in this tutorial. In PHP PDO::FETCH_INTO is a constant which allows us to fetch the data from an existing database into an instance or object of a class. Like the previous tutorial (based on class) PDO::FETCH_CLASS the fields were mapped to the class fields.  Keeping this in mind, we would make the duplicate of PDO::FETCH_CLASS by creating an object of the class. In the following example we use getter (__get) method and setter (__set) method.



class Test


protected $cols;

function __set($name, $value) {

$this->cols[$name] = $value;


function __get($name) {

return $this->cols[$name];







$obj = new Test();

$db=new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$db",$user,$password);

$stmt = $db->prepare("select * from emp_details");

$stmt->setFetchMode(PDO::FETCH_INTO, $obj);


foreach ($stmt as $a) {






Test Object ( [cols:protected] => Array ( [emp_first_name] => sachin [emp_last_name] => tendulkar [emp_city] => mumbai ) ) Test Object ( [cols:protected] => Array ( [emp_first_name] => rahul [emp_last_name] => dravid [emp_city] => bangalore ) ) Test Object ( [cols:protected] => Array ( [emp_first_name] => sourav [emp_last_name] => ganguly [emp_city] => kolkata ) )
