Example: This example retrieves some fields from a Joomla! user record.

global $database;
// Declare an instance of the mosUser class.
$user = new mosUser( $database );
// Load user record with primary key id 62;
$uid = 62;
if (!$user->load( $uid )) {
  echo "Cannot load user id $uid: " . $database->stderr();
// Show some of the fields retrieved.
echo 'Name: '     . $user->get( 'name' )     . "\n";
echo 'Username: ' . $user->get( 'username' ) . "\n";
echo 'Usertype: ' . $user->get( 'usertype' ) . "\n";

which might output:
