Hi everybody,
i'm trying to apply a method to an object getting its name from a variable, that i obtain parsing an XML file.

For example:

$object = new Class;
$method = "row()"; #I'm getting this from the XML parser
$object->$method; #I've an error here...

Obviously the method inside the class exists.
How can i do it?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Your problem is the inclusion of parameters in the $method. You can do the following:


    $object = new Class;
    $method = 'row';
    $ret = $object->$method();


Or if you insist on embedded parameters (but this is a security risk):


    $object = new Class;
    $method = 'row()';
    $ret = eval( "return \$object->$method;" );
