Arithmetic Operations in PHP

Hi,

I'm trying to do some simple adding in php, but having a few issues.

Here is the function code:
    function getUsedCredits() {
        
        $f_response = 0;
        $total = 0;
        $uid = 21;
        $sql = "SELECT cost FROM tbl_clientdomains WHERE uid = ?";
        $response = $this->db->query($sql, array($uid));
        
        if ($response->num_rows() > 0) {
            foreach ($response->result() as $row) {
                
                $f_response = $total + (int)$row->cost;
                
            }
        }
        var_dump($response);
        return $f_response;
    }

Open in new window


When I echo $f_response, the result is: 1
However, the result should be 9 but I'm not sure why it's showing 1.

the var_dump of $response is below:
object(CI_DB_mysql_result)[22]
  public 'conn_id' => resource(49, mysql link persistent)
  public 'result_id' => resource(69, mysql result)
  public 'result_array' => 
    array (size=0)
      empty
  public 'result_object' => 
    array (size=9)
      0 => 
        object(stdClass)[21]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      1 => 
        object(stdClass)[23]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      2 => 
        object(stdClass)[24]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      3 => 
        object(stdClass)[25]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      4 => 
        object(stdClass)[26]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      5 => 
        object(stdClass)[27]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      6 => 
        object(stdClass)[28]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      7 => 
        object(stdClass)[29]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
      8 => 
        object(stdClass)[30]
          public 'cost' => string '1' (length=1)
  public 'custom_result_object' => 
    array (size=0)
      empty
  public 'current_row' => int 0
  public 'num_rows' => int 9
  public 'row_data' => null

Open in new window


I'm using codeigniter as the framework.

Even though from the above we can see there are 9 items in the array that should be returning 1, the total value should therefore be 9 but the output is always 1 for some reason..

Any help is appreciated.

You are continuously resetting the value.  Try this.

    function getUsedCredits() {
        
        $f_response = 0;
        $total = 0;
        $uid = 21;
        $sql = "SELECT cost FROM tbl_clientdomains WHERE uid = ?";
        $response = $this->db->query($sql, array($uid));
        
        if ($response->num_rows() > 0) {
            $f_response = $total;
            foreach ($response->result() as $row) {
                
                $f_response += (int)$row->cost;
                
            }
        }
        var_dump($response);
        return $f_response;
    }

In order to accumulate a value and increment it each time, change this line:
$f_response = $total + (int)$row->cost;

to this:

$f_response = $f_response + (int)$row->cost;

This allows $f_response to add a new value to the existing value, such that it takes the current value and adds a new value to it.


This is the same calculation as what the previous poster wrote, so you could also say the following.  

$f_response +=  (int)$row->cost;

The first is easier to remember and see what is happening.  The second is more concise.'
