Hello folks! welcome back to a new edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP get_class_vars() Function.

The get_class_vars() function in PHP gets the default properties of the given class. It returns an associative array of the default public properties of the class.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

Parameter Details

The class name.

Return Value

This PHP function returns an associative array of default public properties of the class. The resulting array elements are in the form of varname=>value.


Try out the below example -

   class helloworld {
      var $var1;
      var $var2 = "xyz";
      var $var3 = 100;
      private $var4; // PHP 5
      function helloworld() {
         $this->var1 = "foo";
         $this->var2 = "bar";
         return true;
   $hello_class = new helloworld();
   $class_vars = get_class_vars(get_class($hello_class));
   foreach ($class_vars as $name => $value) {
      echo "$name : $value \n";


When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -
