PHP Designing Interfaces in PHP Introducing Interfaces Implement MySQL RepositoryInterface

Okie dokie, What am I missing here in my find() function. Getting array of NULLS

Getting an array of NULLS and not sure why

class sqlRepository extends PDO implements RepositoryInterface
 public function all ($table)
        // Query
        $pdoS = $this->query('SELECT * FROM ' . $table);
        return $pdoS->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_OBJ);

    public function find( $table, $value, $col = 'id' ) {
        // Prepare Query
        $sql  = "SELECT * FROM $table WHERE $col = ?";
        $pdoS = $this->prepare( $sql, [ $value ] );
        // Execute Query
    // Return fetched objects
        return $pdoS->fetchAll( PDO::FETCH_OBJ);


I had to refresh myself but i figured out the issue..... posting answer.

I was trying to pass values into the prepare instead of the execute funtion.

public function find( $table, $value, $col = 'id' ) { // Prepare Query $sql = "SELECT * FROM $table WHERE $col = ?"; $pdoS = $this->prepare( $sql ); // Execute Query $pdoS->execute( [ $value ] );

    // Return feteched table
    return $pdoS->fetchAll( PDO::FETCH_OBJ);
