Find all fields held in a variable??

Ok new to php so read between the lines of what I'm asking as I may have all the terminology wrong..

I have a string/variable '$mitem' which seems to hold things such as name, id etc which I can get by using $mitem->name and $mitem->id

How can I get a list of everything that this $mitem holds?

if you hold all the values in a single variable like $mitem="name1#id1#name2#id2";
and seprated by # then you can split it using the delimiter and use the values...
You can try to use a foreach loop


foreach($mitem as $key=>$value){
    echo $key."-".$value."<br>";

$mitem is an object, and name and id are it members.

mitem is a class..

you could issue:

echo "<pre>". print_r($mitem) . "</pre>";
