PEAR::getStaticProperty()

PEAR::getStaticProperty() – handle static properties (package developer related)

Synopsis

require_once 'PEAR.php';

mixed &PEAR::getStaticProperty ( string $class , string $var )

Description

If you have a class that's mostly/entirely static, and you need static properties, you can use this method to simulate them. Eg. in your method(s) do this:

<?php
$myVar 
= &PEAR::getStaticProperty('myVar');
?>

You must use a reference, or they will not persist!

Parameter

  • string $class - the name of your class, where you call getStaticProperty()

  • string $var the variable to retrieve.

Return value

mixed - A reference to the variable. If not set, it will be auto initialised to NULL.

Example

Using getStaticProperty()

<?php

require_once 'PEAR.php';

class 
myClass {

function 
setValue$set
{
 
$foo = &PEAR::getStaticProperty('myClass'"foo");
 
$foo $set;
}

function 
view()
{
 print 
PEAR::getStaticProperty('myClass'"foo");
}

}

myClass::setValue('value = foo');
myClass::view();
?>

This would print

value = foo
