Accessing A Document's Properties/metadata

Sep 6, 2006

Is it possible (and if it is how?) to have php display the details of a
word/excel/pdf document's properties/metadata?

I can go into MS Word...File...Properties and assign things like Title,
Subject, Author, Comments, etc... What I need to do now is put thse
files on a server and have php display some of those properties for me.

(Is that the same as metadata?)

Is that possible and if it is how do I go about getting started?

Accessing SOAP Object Properties?

I have .NET web service that I'm accessing through PHP. This web service is passed an ID and returns four properties from my DB2 server to the PHP object - code is as follows.

PHP Code:
$client = new soapclient(SOAP_ADDRESS);
$objectresult = $client->GetDataByID(array('PeopleVendorsID'=> 'N21248'));

GetDataByID is my .NET web service function. PeopleVendorsID is the parameter that I passed it, a person's unique ID at our organization. SOAP_ADDRESS is a constant with my WSDL address - all of this is fine. PHP is hitting the database and returning data to $objectresult because when I do a var_dump I get this in the browser:


$objectresult obviously has all of the data inside of it but for some reason I'm blocked from calling the results out of the object? I also tried assigning $objectresult to a new property and that didn't work either.

Accessing A Child's Private Properties In Parent?

I have a parent object that I use for general CRUD in my applications - it has basic save & retrieve methods so I can don't have to reinclude them them in all my objects. Most of my child objects extend this base object. This has worked fine, but I'm finding a problem with retrieving a serialized child object. I use a "retrieve" method in the parent object that creates an instance of the child, then populates itself from the properties of the unserialized child - this means is can "self unserialize" the object.

Only problem is - if the child object has a protected or private property, the parent object can't read it, so it doesn't get picked up during retrieval. So I'm looking either for a better way to "self unserialize" or a way to allow a parent object to "see" the protected properties - but only during the retrieval process.

Example of the code:

BaseObject {
protected $someparentProperty;
public function retrieve() {
$serialized = file_get_contents(SOME_FILENAME);
$temp = unserialize($serialized);
foreach($temp as $propertyName => $propertyValue) {
$this->$propertyName = $propertyValue;


EDITED: Should have said "Private" not protected child properties.

Oop - Accessing Parent Properties And Overridden Methods?

I have parent and child classes as follows:

abstract class ParentObj {
private $data;
public function __construct(){
$this->data = array(1,2,3);


The problem is, the child object cannot access the data property and the parent refuses to call the overridden method in the child.

EDIT: I should clarify that I am instantiating a ChildObj as $child = new ChildObj()

Storing And Accessing $_GET And $_POST Properties?

Is this an effective way of accessing the $_GET and $_POST properties?

I can see that the native $_GET function has been looped through so that $varName would be for example "username" and $value would be "Jeremy". Then they are both stored into an array called $getVars?

foreach($_GET as $varName=>$value)
$getVars[$varName]=trim(clean($value, 100));
foreach($_POST as $varName=>$value)
$postVars[$varName]=trim(clean($value, 100));[/php]

Accessing Object Properties Of Type Array Dynamically?

I am building a Language class for internationalization, and I would like to access the properties dynamically (giving the string name), but I don't know how to do it when dealing with arrays (this is just an example):

class Language {

public static $languages_cache = array();
public $index_header_title;
public $index = array(
"header" => array(


So, outputting members:

echo _('index_header_title', "en"); //works
echo _('index["header"]["title"]', "en"); //does not work

I would need a way for accessing arrays dynamically.. for public and private via __set() function.

Oop - Accessing Private/protected Properties Of An Object In Anonymous Function?

I'm trying to dump elements of an object's private property through an anonymous function - of course I could achieve this in any number of other ways, but this highlights a PHP conundrum I can't solve off the top of my head, short of $foo = $this and using $foo - but THAT won't give me the private stuff, so...

Sample code:

class MyClass
private $payload = Array( 'a' => 'A element', 'b' => 'B element');
static $csvOrder = Array('b','a');

Parent Class Accessing Properties Of A Child Class?

What's the proper way for a parent class to access properties of a child class? Should I pass the object in as a function argument? Then access it that way? I can't really think of any better way that? This method wouldn't break encapsulation, would it?

Example of what I'm asking:

class A
function testIt($class)
if ( $class->getTest() == 1 )

Modifying MP3 ID3 MetaData

I run a php web site that allows administrators to upload MP3 files. The form asks for the artist, title, and date as input along with the file to upload. I would like to modify the metadata attributes of the mp3 file that is uploaded. (I want to change the song title, artist name, year, genre of the mp3 file.) I am wondering how I could do this using php?

I do not want to install pear modules or anything like that, I would like to do it using just straight php code. Can't I load the file into a binary stream and then some how modify the metadata in the binary stream and save it to a new file?
