dbQueryIsActive

Purpose

Returns 1 if the query is active.

Format

ret = dbQueryIsActive(qid)
Parameters:qid (scalar) – query number.
Returns:ret (scalar) – 1 if the query is active or 0 if not.

Examples

// Create query
qid = dbCreateQuery(db_id);

// Check if active
dbQueryIsActive(qid); // False

// Prepare query
dbQueryPrepare(qid, "INSERT INTO TEST
     (foo, bar) VALUES (1, 2);");

// Check if active
dbQueryIsActive(qid); // False

// Execute query
dbQueryExecPrepared(qid);

// Check if active
dbQueryIsActive(qid); // True

// Finish query
dbQueryFinish(qid);

// Check if active
dbQueryIsActive(qid); // False

Remarks

An active query is one that has been dbQueryExecPrepared()’d successfully, but not yet finished with. When you are finished with an active query, you can make the query inactive by calling dbQueryFinish() or dbQueryClear().

Note

Of particular interest is an active query that is a SELECT statement. For some databases that support transactions, an active query that is a SELECT statement can cause a dbCommit() or a dbRollback() to fail, so before committing or rolling back, you should make your active SELECT statement query inactive using one of the methods listed above.
