Convert String To An Array Or Object If It Represents One?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a function that prints information to the page, it does this because it checks if that value exists every time and outputs an error if it doesn't. Due to the unknown nature of what is being sent to this function it always arrives as a string, I can't change this.Is it possible for this function to interpret strings such as "array[0]" and "object.something" and return that value instead of looking for the value as an index in $this


private array = array("stuff");


How Many Bits Each Character Of A String Represents

Aug 4, 2009

I remember there was a function in PHP where you can choose how many bits each character of a string represents (I dont remember if it was for converting string or for generating them). For example if you chose 4 bits per caracter then the output string would be formed by hexadecimal characters only (0-9 A-F).

If you chose 5 bits per caracter then the output string will include more characters (not just hexadecimal ones) since the alphabet needs to have 32 characters (2^5); and if you chose 6 bits per charaters then an alphabet of 2^6=64 characters was used. Of course, the more bits per character you choose, the shorter the output string will be. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?? I'm quite sure there was a built-in function for this in PHP, but I cant find it.

Convert Object To String?

Feb 15, 2010

I'm having problems using an object in a comparison; every type of comparison generates an error: Code: [error] PHP Catchable fatal error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string in I'm building a theme in WordPress, and I'm trying to use the $post->post_name variable. I've tried if and ternary, I've tried converting the object with strval() and settype(), I've tried passing its value into an array and then imploding the array to get at the string ... nothing! I can echo the object out, but I cannot use it any comparison inside the Loop. But, bizarrely, even if I perform the conversion outside of the Loop — which works — the moment I use the new string variable — no matter what its name is — back inside the Loop, I get the same error.

Convert An Object To A String?

Jul 9, 2009

Is it possible to convert an object to a string? I'm using the imap functions for php and I'd like to get the subject out of what I have and use a preg_match to get the url that's in the subject. But it seems I can't use an object in the preg_match. Any easy way to convert the object to a string? It seems a string (when I manually enter one in) works

Oh I'm sing php 4, but we hope to upgrade to 5.3 in a month or so. So a solution that works for both would be great if possible.

Convert String Into Object Property?

Apr 30, 2009

I am working on the back end php for a JQuery inline field editing feature for a web app.

I am passing the field name (id) and value (val) to the mysql/update method of my class.

Since this update can be for literally any field in the table (and therefore any property of the object), I need to be able to do this:

PHP Code:
function update($id, $val) {
$this->$id = $val;

But I get "cannot access empty property" with this approach. Using $id, which corresponds to one of the existing object properties, how can I assign $val to the correct property?

Equivalent Of Delphi - Convert The Object To An Array And Then Refer To The Associative Elements In The Array?

Dec 6, 2009

Is there a PHP way to do the equivalent of the following Delphi snippet

with someObject do
   x:=objPropA;//some stuff with objPropA

Apart from reducing the verbosity of code it also reduces the possibility of typo errors.  The best I have managed is to convert the object to an array and then refer to the associative elements in the array. This works for me because I ensure that I am only handling simple PHP objects - i.e. ones which do not have objects as properties in turn. However, given just how neat PHP is I am sure that there is a better way.

Convert XML Object To HTML Friendly Text String?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm using PHP5 and it's inbuilt SOAP functionality. I'm catching the SOAP Fault errors, and email myself when one is triggered. What I really need to do is include the __getLastRequest() and __getLastResponse(), however as these are XML objects, when I try to include them by echoing them into the body of my HTML email, for obvious reasons they don't appear in full.

Is there a function or class I can use to convert these objects into a HTML friendly string? I've googled this but without any joy. If possible i'd like to avoid using a class external to PHPs own functionality but if needs must i'll have to. EDITED: How can I format the following XML so that it gives me an indented browser friendly version?

Is there a simple way to convert a mysql query result object into an array (rather than an object?)

ie. say I run a query against a mysql database in order to show the results in a table:

PHP Code:

$result= mysqli_query($link,$sql);
//...then run the result through the code that displays the table...that all works fine

BUT when I try to print_r($result) at the end of the process, all I see is the statement "mysqli_result Object ( ) " is there a way to simply convert the object into something (ie an array) that can be used again for other purposes without re-running the query?

Convert Indexed Array Into Object?

Aug 31, 2009

I find it peculiar converting an indexed array to an object. Consider the following:

PHP Code:
$arr = array('John', 'Jenny');
$obj = (object) $arr;
echo $obj->{0}; // Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$0

The goal here is to be able to simply tap into and echo out the value 'John' via $obj while making use of stdClass. Since arrays being converted to objects assign array keys to object properties while the array values become those properties' values, this means that the property 0 will have the value 'John' while the property 1 will have 'Jenny'. Simply using print_r in place of that last line in the snippet demonstrates this:

Convert Values Stored In An Object To An Array?

Jul 14, 2011

Here is my code:

class Sub extends DatabaseObject {
protected static $table_name="subs";
protected static $db_fields=array('id', 'product_id', 'col1', 'col2', 'col3', 'col4', 'col5', 'col6', 'col7', 'col8', 'col9', 'col10', 'col11', 'col12');
public $id;
public $product_id;

My find_subs_on($product_id) function calls another function that passes values into the public variables above.

My problem is that I want to display the values above in a table, with each col inside a <td>

Do I create a function inside the class that takes those values and returns an array, and then i foreach the array?

Do I create an array in the view, and pass in $sub->col1, $sub->col2 etc.?

I would love if someone could point to an example of the correct way to do this.

Comma Separated String Into Array - Convert It To Array To Get A Link For Every Tag

Apr 30, 2011

I have a comma separated string, which consists of a list of tags and want to convert it to array to get a link for every tag. Example:

$string = 'html,css,php,mysql,javascript';

I want to make it like this:

<a href="tag/html">html</a>, <a href="tag/css">css</a>, <a href="tag/php">php</a>, <a href="tag/mysql">mysql</a>, <a href="tag/javascript">javascript</a>

So the result will be a string containing comma separated links with a space after each link and with no comma after the last link. I have this function where $arg = 'html,css,php,mysql,javascript':


This script works for me but without commas and spaces and if we add a comma and a space here:

$tags = '<a href="' . $u . 'tag/' . $tag . '/">' . $tag . '</a>, ';

we get commas and spaces but there will be a trailing comma after the last link.
