mariadb_stmt_execute_direct - prepares and executes a prepared statement


#include <mysql.h>

int mariadb_stmt_execute_direct(MYSQL_STMT * stmt,
                                const char *query,
                                size_t length);


Prepares and executes a statement which was previously allocated by mysql_stmt_init(3), using the current values of the parameter variables if any parameters exist in the statement.


  • stmt - A statement handle, which was previously allocated by mysql_stmt_init(3).
  • query SQL statement
  • length Length of SQL statement

Return value

Returns zero on success, non-zero on failure.


  • Since the number of parameter of the statement is unknown before execution it is mandatory to set the number of parameters via the mysql_stmt_attr_set(3) function.
  • If the SQL statement is a zero-terminated string, you can also pass -1 as length.
  • The statement handle is intended for one-time execution. Reusing the statement handle might lead to unexpected behavior.


This function was added in Connector/C 3.0 and requires MariaDB 10.2 or later versions.
