Introduction

Interface to provide accessing objects as arrays.


Interface synopsis


ArrayAccess {

/* Methods */

abstract public offsetExists ( mixed $offset ) : bool

abstract public offsetGet ( mixed $offset ) : mixed

abstract public offsetSet ( mixed $offset , mixed $value ) : void

abstract public offsetUnset ( mixed $offset ) : void

}

Example #1 Basic usage

<?phpclass Obj implements ArrayAccess {    private $container = array();    public function __construct() {        $this->container = array(            "one"   => 1,            "two"   => 2,            "three" => 3,        );    }    public function offsetSet($offset, $value) {        if (is_null($offset)) {            $this->container[] = $value;        } else {            $this->container[$offset] = $value;        }    }    public function offsetExists($offset) {        return isset($this->container[$offset]);    }    public function offsetUnset($offset) {        unset($this->container[$offset]);    }    public function offsetGet($offset) {        return isset($this->container[$offset]) ? $this->container[$offset] : null;    }}$obj = new Obj;var_dump(isset($obj["two"]));var_dump($obj["two"]);unset($obj["two"]);var_dump(isset($obj["two"]));$obj["two"] = "A value";var_dump($obj["two"]);$obj[] = 'Append 1';$obj[] = 'Append 2';$obj[] = 'Append 3';print_r($obj);?>

The above example will output something similar to:


bool(true)
int(2)
bool(false)
string(7) "A value"
obj Object
(
    [container:obj:private] => Array
        (
            [one] => 1
            [three] => 3
            [two] => A value
            [0] => Append 1
            [1] => Append 2
            [2] => Append 3
        )

)
