Why is the error outside the class? If you connect with a class, something like:

public function __construct() {
  $this->handle = false;
  while($this->handle === false) {
    $this->handle == odbc_connect();

ought to work fine.  Alternatively, you could check out PDO, which is
supposed to be the next generation of database connections in PHP, and
won't create an object without a connection.
