Example #1 ArrayObject::exchangeArray() example

<?php
// Array of available fruits
$fruits = array("lemons" => 1, "oranges" => 4, "bananas" => 5, "apples" => 10);
// Array of locations in Europe
$locations = array('Amsterdam', 'Paris', 'London');

It's worth notting that ArrayObject::exchangeArray() doesn't call ArrayObject::offsetSet() internally for each offset/property of the array/object provided in argument.

It's also worth noting the let's say "unexpected" behavior of get/set:

<?php
class MyArrayObject extends ArrayObject
{
public function
offsetSet($name, $value)
{
parent::offsetSet($name . '_control', $value);
parent::offsetSet($name, $value);
}
}

$test = new MyArrayObject();
$test->setFlags(\ArrayObject::ARRAY_AS_PROPS);
$test['my_value_1'] = 1;
$test['my_value_1'] = $test['my_value_1'] + 1;
$test['my_value_1'] += 1;
$test['my_value_1'] ++;
++
$test['my_value_1'];

$test->my_value_2 = 1;
$test->my_value_2 = $test->my_value_2 + 1;
$test->my_value_2 += 1;
$test->my_value_2 ++;
++
$test->my_value_2;

print_r($test);

// Prints out:
MyArrayObject Object
(
[
storage:ArrayObject:private] => Array
(
[
my_value_1_control] => 3
[my_value_1] => 5
[my_value_2_control] => 2
[my_value_2] => 5
)
)
?>
