Hello:

class A{
}

class B{
}

function MyFunction(){
     $mArray=array();
     $mArray[]=new A();
     $mArray[]=new B();
     return $mArray;
}

Open in new window


I know how many elements the array returned from MyFunction has, but is there a way I can check if an element is of type A or B?

Thanks,
Uni

<?php

class A{
}

class B{
}

function MyFunction(){
     $mArray=array();
     $mArray[]=new A();
     $mArray[]=new B();
     return $mArray;
}

$obj = MyFunction();
foreach( $obj as $o )
     if ( is_object($o ) )
          echo get_class( $o ) . "<br/>";

produces

A
B
