Hello,

I have this function that returns an object, which i would like to turn into a string. Casting it returns an error. Please help?

$hehe =(string) (function() {
			echo '[';
			for ($j = 0; $j < 1; $j++) {
				echo '{';
				echo '"title":"All Day Event",';
				echo '"start":"2014-11-01",';
				echo '"end":"2014-11-01"';
				if ($j == 1-1){
			             echo '}';
			        }
               			else {
		        		echo '},';
			       	}

			}
			echo ']';
		});

Well, apparently when i do gettype($hehe)
$hehe is an object.

I kind of expected it to be a string.
By the way, my casting it as a (string) at the beginning returns an error

Ah i am trying to produce this :

$hehe =  '[
  {
    "title": "All Day Event",
    "start": "2014-11-01"
  },
  {
    "title": "Long Event",
    "start": "2014-11-07",
    "end": "2014-11-10"
  }]'

I just realized i may have used the wrong thing when i used echo...i should have used concatenate instead, maybe? I am new to php..

Do you mean something like this?
$f = function($t,$s,$e){
            $str=      '[
';
            for ($j = 0; $j < 2; $j++) {
                  $str .= '  {
';
                  if ($j == 2-1){
                          $str .= '    "title":"'.$t.',
    "start": "'.$s.'",
    "end": "'.$e.'
  }';
                    }
                             else {
                        $str .= '    "title":"All Day Event",
';
                               $str .= '    "start":"2014-11-01",
';
                          $str .= '  },
';
                               }

                  }
                  $str .= ']';
             return $str;
};
$hehe=$f("Long Event","2014-11-07","2014-11-10");
echo $hehe;
