    basic php5 oop question

    How do I call the methods of another object from inside another object?

    This doesn't seem right:

    Code:
          3 class errObj{
          4
          5   public function displayErr($msg){
          6
          7     echo $msg;
          8     exit;
          9
         10   }
         11
         12 }
         13
         14 class doSomething{
         15
         16   public function doingIt(){
         17
         18     $msg="An error happened";
         19     $err_obj=new errObj();
         20     $err_obj->displayErr($msg);
         21
         22   }
         23
         24 }
         25
         26 $obj=new doSomething();
         27 $obj->doingIt();

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    That syntax is alright. Is it throwing an error when you try that?

    No error, just seems bad.

    If everytime I want to use the errObj inside another object, I have to create it inside that other object, seems tedious.

    in your case, you may want to use a static function. Here would be the rewritten code:
    Code:
    class errObj{
    	public static function displayErr($msg){
    		echo $msg;
    		exit;
    	}
    }
    class doSomething{
    	public function doingIt(){
    		$msg="An error happened";
    		errObj::displayErr($msg);
    	}
    }
    
    $obj=new doSomething();
    $obj->doingIt();
