how to bind mysqli bind param arguments dynamically in php


how to bind mysqli bind param arguments dynamically in php  using -'php,arrays,mysqli,bind,prepared-statement'

I have been learning to use prepared and bound statements for my sql queries, and I have come out with this so far, it works ok but it is not dynamic at all when comes to multiple parameters or when there no parameter needed,

public function get_result($sql,$parameter)
    {
        # create a prepared statement
    $stmt = $this->mysqli->prepare($sql);

        # bind parameters for markers
    # but this is not dynamic enough...
        $stmt->bind_param("s", $parameter);

        # execute query
        $stmt->execute();

    # these lines of code below return one dimentional array, similar to mysqli::fetch_assoc()
        $meta = $stmt->result_metadata();

        while ($field = $meta->fetch_field()) {
            $var = $field->name;
            $$var = null;
            $parameters[$field->name] = &$$var;
        }

        call_user_func_array(array($stmt, 'bind_result'), $parameters);

        while($stmt->fetch())
        {
            return $parameters;
            //print_r($parameters);      
        }


        # close statement
        $stmt->close();
    }


This is how I call the object classes,

$mysqli = new database(DB_HOST,DB_USER,DB_PASS,DB_NAME);
$output = new search($mysqli);


Sometimes I don't need to pass in any parameters,

$sql = "
SELECT *
FROM root_contacts_cfm
";

print_r($output->get_result($sql));


Sometimes I need only one parameters,

$sql = "
SELECT *
FROM root_contacts_cfm
WHERE root_contacts_cfm.cnt_id = ?
ORDER BY cnt_id DESC
";

print_r($output->get_result($sql,'1'));


Sometimes I need only more than one parameters,

$sql = "
SELECT *
FROM root_contacts_cfm
WHERE root_contacts_cfm.cnt_id = ?
AND root_contacts_cfm.cnt_firstname = ?
ORDER BY cnt_id DESC
";

print_r($output->get_result($sql,'1','Tk'));


So, I believe that this line is not dynamic enough for the dynamic tasks above,

$stmt->bind_param("s", $parameter);


To build a bind_param dynamically, I have found this on other posts online.

call_user_func_array(array(&$stmt, 'bind_params'), $array_of_params);


And I tried to modify some code from php.net but I am getting nowhere,

if (strnatcmp(phpversion(),'5.3') >= 0) //Reference is required for PHP 5.3+
    {
        $refs = array();
        foreach($arr as $key => $value)
            $array_of_param[$key] = &$arr[$key];

       call_user_func_array(array(&$stmt, 'bind_params'), $array_of_params);

     }


Why?? Any ideas how I can make it work?

Or maybe there are better solutions??

Thanks.
