Istoria schimbărilor

Versiunea Descriere
5.1.0 Added the option to pass the class parameter as a string. Added the autoload parameter.

Exemple

Example #1 class_implements() example

<?php

interface foo { }
class 
bar implements foo {}

print_r(class_implements(new bar));

// since PHP 5.1.0 you may also specify the parameter as a string
print_r(class_implements('bar'));


function 
__autoload($class_name) {
   require_once 
$class_name '.php';
}

// use __autoload to load the 'not_loaded' class
print_r(class_implements('not_loaded'true));

?>

Exemplul de mai sus va afișa ceva similar cu:

Array
(
    [foo] => foo
)

Array
(
    [interface_of_not_loaded] => interface_of_not_loaded
)

You can also check if a class implements an interface using instanceof.

E.g.
<?php
if($myObj instanceof MyInterface) {
    echo
"It is! It is!";
}
?>

Hint:
<?php
in_array
("your-interface", class_implements($object_or_class_name));
?>
would check if 'your-interface' is ONE of the implemented interfaces.
Note that you can use something similar to be sure the class only implements that, (whyever you would want that?)
<?php
array("your-interface") == class_implements($object_or_class_name);
?>

I use the first technique to check if a module has the correct interface implemented, or else it throws an exception.

Calling class_implements with a non-loadable class name or a non-object results in a warning:

<?php
// Warning: class_implements(): Class abc does not exist and could not be loaded in /home/a.panek/Projects/sauce/lib/Sauce/functions.php on line 196

$interfaces = class_implements('abc');
?>

This is not documented and should just return FALSE as the documentation above says.

Luckily, it prints out superinterfaces as well in reverse order so iterative searching works fine:

    <?php
   
   
interface InterfaceA { }
   
    interface
InterfaceB extends InterfaceA { }
   
    class
MyClass implements InterfaceB { }
   
   
print_r(class_implements(new MyClass()));
   
   
?>

prints out:

    Array
    (
        [InterfaceB] => InterfaceB
        [InterfaceA] => InterfaceA
    )
