Additional changes were necessary to get this working. See revisions

2.5.0b4 or 2.5.0RC1). This is related to bug #18203.

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net
by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

When using the second parameter of queryRow() to strong type results,
columns not specified behave erratically. That is, some values are not
returned at all. If the same method is used without strong typing, the
column values are returned as text without a problem.

I've tested this in a variety of ways and it seems that the number of
fields that are strong typed are applied to the field set represented by
* no matter what.

Test script:
Example 1:

$insInfo = $db->queryRow('SELECT * FROM "thisTable" WHERE "thisTableid"
= '.$rec, array('SectionOneInclude' => 'boolean', 'SectionTwoInclude' =>

Example 2:

$insInfo = $db->queryRow('SELECT "SectionOneInclude",
"SectionTwoInclude", * FROM "thisTable" WHERE "thisTableid" = '.$rec,
array('SectionOneInclude' => 'boolean', 'SectionTwoInclude' =>

Expected result:
In Example 1, I would expect to get the entire result set as normal,
with the two values for $insInfo['SectionOneInclude'] and
$insInfo['SectionTwoInclude'] strong typed to boolean. While the latter
does occur, the strong typing also applies to the first two columns of
the entire result set. In other words, if the columns of the table were
thisTableid, Name, Address, Phone, SectionOneInclude, and
SectionTwoInclude, the result expected result is:
[thisTableid] => 2
[Name] => ABC Widgets
[Address] => 123 Main Street
[Phone] => 555-666-7777
[SectionOneInclude] => 1
[SectionTwoInclude] =>

I'd expect the same result for the second example, except that the
SectionOneInclude and SectionTwoInclude fields would be returned at the
top of the results.

Actual result:
[thisTableid] =>
[Name] =>
[Address] => 123 Main Street
[Phone] => 555-666-7777
[SectionOneInclude] => 1
[SectionTwoInclude] =>
