How can I loop through all the properties of object?. Right now I have to write a new code line to print each property of object

echo $obj->name;
echo $obj->age;

Can I loop through all the properties of an object using foreach loop or any loop?

Something like this

foreach ($obj as $property => $value)  



If this is just for debugging output, you can use the following to see all the types and values as well.


If you want more control over the output you can use this:

foreach ($obj as $key => $value) {
    echo "$key => $valuen";

Here's what worked best for me when trying to script this (in case anyone else comes across this like I did):

$ pecl -d php_suffix=5.6 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

$ pecl -d php_suffix=7.0 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

$ pecl -d php_suffix=7.1 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

The -d php_suffix=<version> piece allows you to set config values at run time vs pre-setting them with pecl config-set. The uninstall -r bit does not actually uninstall it (from the docs):

vagrant@homestead:~$ pecl help uninstall
pecl uninstall [options] [channel/]<package> ...
Uninstalls one or more PEAR packages.  More than one package may be
specified at once.  Prefix with channel name to uninstall from a
channel not in your default channel (

  -r, --register-only
        do not remove files, only register the packages as not installed

The uninstall line is necessary otherwise installing it will remove any previously installed version, even if it was for a different PHP version (ex: Installing an extension for PHP 7.0 would remove the 5.6 version if the package was still registered as installed).

Use Reflection:

Type type = obj.GetType();
PropertyInfo[] properties = type.GetProperties();

foreach (PropertyInfo property in properties)
    Console.WriteLine("Name: " + property.Name + ", Value: " + property.GetValue(obj, null));

for Excel - what tools/reference item must be added to gain access to BindingFlags, as there is no "System.Reflection" entry in the list

Edit: You can also specify a BindingFlags value to type.GetProperties():

BindingFlags flags = BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.Instance;
PropertyInfo[] properties = type.GetProperties(flags);

That will restrict the returned properties to public instance properties (excluding static properties, protected properties, etc).

You don't need to specify BindingFlags.GetProperty, you use that when calling type.InvokeMember() to get the value of a property.

Actually if you need only to read properties from a file and not to use these properties in Spring's property placeholders, then the solution is simple

public class Test1 {
    Properties props;

    public void printProps() {
        for(Entry<Object, Object> e : props.entrySet()) {


<util:properties id="props" location="/" />

Never used any of those, but they look interesting..

Take a look at Gearman as well.. more overhead in systems like these but you get other cool stuff :) Guess it depends on your needs ..
