aggregate_info

Gets aggregation information for a given object ()
array aggregate_info ( object object )

Gets the aggregation information for the given object.

Parameters

object

Return Values

Returns the aggregation information as an associative array of arrays of methods and properties. The key for the main array is the name of the aggregated class.

Examples

Example 1626. Using aggregate_info()

<?php

class Slicer {
   var
$vegetable;

   function
Slicer($vegetable)
   {
       
$this->vegetable = $vegetable;
   }

   function
slice_it($num_cuts)
   {
       echo
"Doing some simple slicing\n";
       for (
$i=0; $i < $num_cuts; $i++) {
           
// do some slicing
       
}
   }
}

class
Dicer {
   var
$vegetable;
   var
$rotation_angle = 90;   // degrees

   
function Dicer($vegetable)
   {
       
$this->vegetable = $vegetable;
   }

   function
dice_it($num_cuts)
   {
       echo
"Cutting in one direction\n";
       for (
$i=0; $i < $num_cuts; $i++) {
           
// do some cutting
       
}
       
$this->rotate($this->rotation_angle);
       echo
"Cutting in a second direction\n";
       for (
$i=0; $i < $num_cuts; $i++) {
           
// do some more cutting
       
}
   }

   function
rotate($deg)
   {
       echo
"Now rotating {$this->vegetable} {$deg} degrees\n";
   }

   function
_secret_super_dicing($num_cuts)
   {
       
// so secret we cannot show you ;-)
   
}
}

$obj = new Slicer('onion');
aggregate($obj, 'Dicer');
print_r(aggregate_info($obj));
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
   [dicer] => Array
       (
           [methods] => Array
               (
                   [0] => dice_it
                   [1] => rotate
               )

           [properties] => Array
               (
                   [0] => rotation_angle
               )

       )

)


As you can see, all properties and methods of the Dicer class have been aggregated into our new object, with the exception of the class constructor and the method _secret_super_dicing
