(PHP 4, PHP 5)

get_class_methods -- Returns an array of class methods' names

Description

array get_class_methods ( mixed class_name )

This function returns an array of method names defined for the class specified by class_name. In case of an error, it returns NULL

Note: As of PHP 4.0.6, you can specify the object itself instead of class_name. For example:

<?php
$class_methods
= get_class_methods($my_object); // see below the full example
?>

Example 1. get_class_methods() example

<?php

class myclass {
    
// constructor
    
function myclass()
    {
        return(
true);
    }

    
// method 1
    
function myfunc1()
    {
        return(
true);
    }

    
// method 2
    
function myfunc2()
    {
        return(
true);
    }
}

$class_methods = get_class_methods('myclass');
// or
$class_methods = get_class_methods(new myclass());

foreach (
$class_methods as $method_name) {
    echo
"$method_name\n";
}

?>

The above example will output:

myclass
myfunc1
myfunc2

Warning

As of PHP 5, this function returns the name of the methods as they were declared (case-sensitive). In PHP 4 they were lowercased.
