Posted on September 22nd, 2019 in PhP by George


 Easy way to inspect the available methods of an object in PHP by using get_class and get_class_methods built-in functions.


get_class — Returns the name of the class of an object

get_class_methods — Gets the class methods' names



//Get the class nmae of the object
$class_name = get_class($object);

//$using the class name get the available methods on the object instance

$methods = get_class_methods($class_name);

//error log the methods
