Dynamic object property help

Hi,

This works perfectly for me :

<?php echo $json_decoded->attributes->cust->org_name ?> 

Open in new window


However, if I try to make it dynamic.....

<?php echo $json_decoded->attributes->$_GET['type']->org_name ?> 

Open in new window


It fails with an "Trying to get property of non-object" error.

From what I've read in order to pass an object through a GET you need to serialize it on the way in, and then unserialize it on the way out.

Here's the 2 php functions that can do that:
http://www.php.net/serialize
http://www.php.net/unserialize

here's a similar forum posting:

DanDauchy,

I'm not exactly sure you've understood what I'm after ?  Either that, or your solution seems overly complex ?

I have a page that displays some data based on some decoded JSON.....

So :
<?php echo $json_decoded->attributes->cust->org_name ?>

Would display the organisation name ("org_name") for the customer ("cust").

The problem is, there are alternative objects on the same JSON, for example "owner"
<?php echo $json_decoded->attributes->owner->org_name ?>


So all I want to do is some code reuse, and be able to call one page with a different get....

http://example.com?mypage.php?type=cust
or
http://example.com?mypage.php?type=owner

etc etc.

I made a test.php page and used the following code:
$test = new stdClass();
$test->foo = new stdClass();
$test->foo->bar = "hello";

echo $test->foo->bar;
echo "<br/>";
echo $test->$_GET['type']->bar; 

Open in new window


When browsing to temp?type=foo, the output was:
hello
hello

So it seems like accessing an object by using a name sent through $_GET['type'] should work just fine.  So perhaps the problem is with the specific object or your querystring.  I'd var_dump them before the line of code that generates the error to make sure they are what you expect them to be.
