ReflectionClass::getMethods

(PHP 5, PHP 7)

ReflectionClass::getMethodsGets an array of methods

Description

public ReflectionClass::getMethods ([ int $filter ] ) : array

Gets an array of methods for the class.

Parameters

filter

Filter the results to include only methods with certain attributes. Defaults to no filtering.

Any bitwise disjunction of ReflectionMethod::IS_STATIC, ReflectionMethod::IS_PUBLIC, ReflectionMethod::IS_PROTECTED, ReflectionMethod::IS_PRIVATE, ReflectionMethod::IS_ABSTRACT, ReflectionMethod::IS_FINAL, so that all methods with any of the given attributes will be returned.

Note: Note that other bitwise operations, for instance ~ will not work as expected. In other words, it is not possible to retrieve all non-static methods, for example.

Return Values

An array of ReflectionMethod objects reflecting each method.

Examples

Example #1 Basic usage of ReflectionClass::getMethods()

<?php
class Apple {
    public function 
firstMethod() { }
    final protected function 
secondMethod() { }
    private static function 
thirdMethod() { }
}

$class = new ReflectionClass('Apple');
$methods $class->getMethods();
var_dump($methods);
?>

The above example will output:

array(3) {
  [0]=>
  &object(ReflectionMethod)#2 (2) {
    ["name"]=>
    string(11) "firstMethod"
    ["class"]=>
    string(5) "Apple"
  }
  [1]=>
  &object(ReflectionMethod)#3 (2) {
    ["name"]=>
    string(12) "secondMethod"
    ["class"]=>
    string(5) "Apple"
  }
  [2]=>
  &object(ReflectionMethod)#4 (2) {
    ["name"]=>
    string(11) "thirdMethod"
    ["class"]=>
    string(5) "Apple"
  }
}

Example #2 Filtering results from ReflectionClass::getMethods()

<?php
class Apple {
    public function 
firstMethod() { }
    final protected function 
secondMethod() { }
    private static function 
thirdMethod() { }
}

$class = new ReflectionClass('Apple');
$methods $class->getMethods(ReflectionMethod::IS_STATIC ReflectionMethod::IS_FINAL);
var_dump($methods);
?>

The above example will output:

array(2) {
  [0]=>
  &object(ReflectionMethod)#2 (2) {
    ["name"]=>
    string(12) "secondMethod"
    ["class"]=>
    string(5) "Apple"
  }
  [1]=>
  &object(ReflectionMethod)#3 (2) {
    ["name"]=>
    string(11) "thirdMethod"
    ["class"]=>
    string(5) "Apple"
  }
}
