Can someone tell me why I am getting this error? Call to undefined method PDO::bindParam()

Here is what I have, taken right off of PHPs site for stored procedures

$stmt = db::getInstance();
$stmt->prepare("CALL delete(?)");
$stmt->bindParam(2122, $return_value, PDO::PARAM_STR, 4000);
print "procedure returned $return_valuen";



The bindParam() method is inside the PDOStatement class, not the PDO class. The statement is the result of the prepare() method.

$foo = db::getInstance();
$stmt = $foo->prepare("CALL delete(?)");
$stmt->bindParam(2122, $return_value, PDO::PARAM_STR, 4000);
print "procedure returned $return_valuen";

You dont have a function named assign(), but a method with this name. PHP is not Java and in PHP you have to make clear, if you want to call a function


or a method


In your case the call to the function resides inside another method. $this always refers to the object, in which a method exists, itself.

function __construct(){   $ingObject = new Ingredient();   }

ought to be

function __construct(){   $this->ingObject = new Ingredient();   }

In the first case you're setting a local variable, not a field, so it remains null. Then on the validateData you invoke a method on a null variable.

I'm assuming you snipped some code, because your Ingredient class doesn't make sense (there's a $validate variable there that isn't defined).

You should point to your vendor/autoload.php at Settings | PHP | PHPUnit when using PHPUnit via Composer.

On Mac OS X environment variables available in Terminal and for the normal applications can be different, check the related question for the solution how to make them similar.

Note that this solution will not work on Mountain Lion (10.8).
