How can I show what all the objects’ methods and properties are?

That is, including the property’s values?


To discover what the properties and the methods of an object are you can use ReflectionClass.


See get_class_methods() and get_class_vars().

Also worth nothing that PHP’s documentation is pretty good and generally a good place to ask first.

Edit: Of course, asking here seems to have its benefits as well. I never knew about the ReflectionClass Davide brought up 🙂
