Nota:

Esta función devolverá FALSE si se utiliza un objeto unserialized donde la definición de la clase no está presente (a pesar de que gettype() devuelva object).

Note: is_object(null) returns false

This should actually be part of the input/output specification at the top of this page.

Unserializes data as returned by the standard PHP serialize() function. If the unserialized object is not an array, it will be converted to one, particularily useful if it returns a __PHP_Incomplete_Class.

<?php
/**
*
* @param string $data Serialized data
*
* @return array    Unserialized array
*/
function unserialize2array($data) {
   
$obj = unserialize($data);
    if(
is_array($obj)) return $obj;
   
$arr = array();
    foreach(
$obj as $k=>$v) {
       
$arr[$k] = $v;
    }
    unset(
$arr['__PHP_Incomplete_Class_Name']);
    return
$arr;
}
?>

I'm not even sure how to articulate this, so I'm going to just include test code. Maybe someone else will someday wonder the same thing.

<?
    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    class testParent
    {
        var $child;

        function testParent()
        {
            $this->child = new testChild();
        }
    }

    class testChild
    {
        function testChild()
        {
        }
    }

    $parent = new testParent();
    $parent2 = 'foobar';

    print join(',', Array(
        is_object($parent) ? 'yes' : 'no',
        is_object($parent->child) ? 'yes' : 'no',
        is_object($parent2) ? 'yes' : 'no',
        is_object($parent2->child) ? 'yes' : 'no'
    ));

?>

This prints "yes,yes,no,no". Basically this shows that you can use is_object to test if the child object is an object without worrying about an error if the parent object isn't an object either.

Thank you victor AT fourstones DOT net.

I have written a function to do what victor has suggested, with the ease of use of is_object. It can be used to replace is_object(), but has an extra field [$check], to compare to a certain name. If $check is left empty, it will just check if &$object is an object.

<?php

function is_obj( &$object, $check=null, $strict=true )
{
    if(
$check == null && is_object($object) )
    {
        return
true;
    }
    if(
is_object($object) )
    {
       
$object_name = get_class($object);
        if(
$strict === true )
        {
            if(
$object_name == $check )
            {
                return
true;
            }
        }
        else
        {
            if(
strtolower($object_name) == strtolower($check) )
            {
                return
true;
            }
        }
    }
}

?>

This could probably be cleaned up, but it's spaced out to be easy to read.

You can use is_object($this) to detect if the function is being called via instance or procedure.

Example:

<?php

class mrClass {

    function
test( )
    {
        if(
is_object($this) )
        {
        
// do something for instance method
           
echo 'this is an instance call <br />' . "\n";
        }
        else
        {
        
// do something different for procedural method
           
echo 'this is a procedure call <br />' . "\n";
        }
    }

}

$inst = new mrClass();
$inst->test();

mrClass::test();

?>

This would output:
this is an instance call <br />
this is a procedure call <br />

:-) Happy coding!

cleaned up peter's code... use only one return statement

function is_obj( &$object, $check=null, $strict=true )
{
$result = false;
  if (is_object($object)) {
      if ($check == null) {
          $result =  true;
      } else {
           $object_name = get_class($object);
           $result =  ($strict === true)?
               ( $object_name == $check ):
               ( strtolower($object_name) == strtolower($check) );
      }  
  }
return $result;
}

Use instanceof() to check for a specific type.

here i created one function that i wanted to find but i had never found :X

    function compare_two_object_recursive($object_1, $object_2, $object_1_Identifier = false, $object_2_Identifier = false){
        $object1 = (array)$object_1;
        $object2 = (array)$object_2;
        $object3 = array();
       
        $o1i = $object_1_Identifier ? $object_1_Identifier : 1;
        $o2i = $object_2_Identifier ? $object_2_Identifier : 2;
       
        foreach($object1 as $key => $value){
            if(is_object($object1[$key])){
                $object1[$key] = (array)$object1[$key];
                $object2[$key] = (array)$object2[$key];
                $object3[$key] = (object)compare_two_object_recursive($object1[$key], $object2[$key], $o1i, $o2i);
            }elseif(is_array($object1[$key])){
                $object3[$key] = compare_two_object_recursive($object1[$key], $object2[$key], $o1i, $o2i);
            }else{
                if($object1[$key] == $object2[$key]){
                    $object3[$key]['comparison_status'] = "SAME";
                }else{
                    $object3[$key]['comparison_status'] = "NOT THE SAME";
                    $object3[$key][$o1i] = $object1[$key];
                    $object3[$key][$o2i] = $object2[$key];
                }
            }
        }
        return $object3;
    }

Just discovered:
is_a  (  object $object  ,  string $class_name  )
Which checks if the object is of this class or has this class as one of its parents

Which seems to do what a lot here are trying to replicate

er, I don't think that's right, especially if calling from another object instance:

<?

function test_this()
{
    $c2 = new C2();
    $c2->func();
    $c1 = new C1();
    $c1->func();
    C1::func();
}

class C2
{
    function func()
    {
        C1::func();
    }
}

class C1
{
    function func()
    {
        if( isset($this) )
        {
            if( strtolower(get_class($this)) != 'c1' )
                print("oops\n");
            else
                print("this is ok\n" );
        }
        else
        {
            print("static call\n");
        }
    }
}

test_this();
?>

yields:
---------- run-php ----------

oops
this is ok
static call

Cleaning it up even more:

<?php
function is_obj(&$object, $className = null, $caseSensitive = true) {
    return
is_object($object) && (!is_string($className) || preg_match('/^'.$className.'$/D'.($caseSensitive ? '' : 'i'), get_class($object)));
}
?>
