Description

Converts an array into BITMAP values.

Syntax

BITMAP array_to_bitmap(array)

Parameters

array: Elements in an array can be of the INT, TINYINT, or SMALLINT type.

Return value

Returns a value of the BITMAP type.

Usage notes

  • If an empty array is entered, an empty BITMAP value is returned.

  • If NULL is entered, NULL is returned.

Examples

Example 1: Convert an array into BITMAP values. This function must be nested in bitmap_to_array because BITMAP values cannot be displayed.

MySQL > select bitmap_to_array(array_to_bitmap([1,2,3]));
+-------------------------------------------+
| bitmap_to_array(array_to_bitmap([1,2,3])) |
+-------------------------------------------+
| [1,2,3]                                   |
+-------------------------------------------+

Example 2: Enter an empty array and an empty array is returned.

MySQL > select bitmap_to_array(array_to_bitmap([]));
+--------------------------------------+
| bitmap_to_array(array_to_bitmap([])) |
+--------------------------------------+
| []                                   |
+--------------------------------------+

Example 3: Enter NULL and NULL is returned.

MySQL > select array_to_bitmap(NULL);
+-----------------------+
| array_to_bitmap(NULL) |
+-----------------------+
| NULL                  |
+-----------------------+
