SHOW EVENTS [FROM database] [LIKE 'pattern'|WHERE expression]

Explanation

This MySQL statement displays a list of scheduled events on the server. The results can also include events that have been completed but were preserved. The MySQL database to which events are related may be given in the FROM clause; the default is the current database. The LIKE or WHERE clauses can be used to list events based on a particular naming pattern. With the WHERE clause, you can use the names of fields in the results to create an expression that sets a condition determining the results returned.

Examples

An example of this MySQL statement follows. See our MySQL documentation of the CREATE EVENT statement for more information on events.
