Parameters

An object (class instance) or a string (class name).

autoload

Whether to allow this function to load the class automatically through the __autoload magic method. Defaults to TRUE.

ChangeLog

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

Examples

Example 1. class_implements() example

<?php

interface foo
{ }
class
bar implements foo {}

print_r(class_implements(new bar));

// since PHP 5.1 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));

?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Array
(
    [foo] => foo
)

Array
(
    [interface_of_not_loaded] => interface_of_not_loaded
)
