Associative Key Case

If returning data in associative mode, it is important to choose early in the project whether to use upper case or lower case keys. Once that decision has been made, a consistent result can be expected. ADOdb controls the casing of the keys using the ADODB_ASSOC_CASE constant.

The constant must be defined before the inclusion of the ADOdb libraries

There are 3 possible values: ADODB_ASSOC_CASE_LOWER, ADODB_ASSOC_CASE_UPPER and ADODB_ASSOC_CASE_NATIVE (Default). Note that use of native case is not recommended when writing portable applications.

See ADODB_ASSOC_CASE in the reference manual for further information and usage examples.
