CMap implements a collection that takes key-value pairs.

You can access, add or remove an item with a key by using itemAt, add, and remove. To get the number of the items in the map, use getCount. CMap can also be used like a regular array as follows,
$map[$key]=$value; // add a key-value pair
unset($map[$key]); // remove the value with the specified key
if(isset($map[$key])) // if the map contains the key
foreach($map as $key=>$value) // traverse the items in the map
$n=count($map);  // returns the number of items in the map

Property Details

count property read-only
public integer getCount()

the number of items in the map

iterator property read-only

Returns an iterator for traversing the items in the list. This method is required by the interface IteratorAggregate.

keys property read-only
public array getKeys()

the key list

readOnly property
public boolean getReadOnly()
protected void setReadOnly(boolean $value)

whether this map is read-only or not. Defaults to false.

Method Details

__construct() method
public void __construct(array $data=NULL, boolean $readOnly=false)
$data array the intial data. Default is null, meaning no initialization.
$readOnly boolean whether the list is read-only

Constructor. Initializes the list with an array or an iterable object.

add() method
public void add(mixed $key, mixed $value)
$key mixed key
$value mixed value

Adds an item into the map. Note, if the specified key already exists, the old value will be overwritten.

clear() method
public void clear()

Removes all items in the map.

contains() method
public boolean contains(mixed $key)
$key mixed the key
{return} boolean whether the map contains an item with the specified key

copyFrom() method
public void copyFrom(mixed $data)
$data mixed the data to be copied from, must be an array or object implementing Traversable

Copies iterable data into the map. Note, existing data in the map will be cleared first.

count() method
public integer count()
{return} integer number of items in the map.

Returns the number of items in the map. This method is required by Countable interface.

getCount() method
public integer getCount()
{return} integer the number of items in the map

getIterator() method
public CMapIterator getIterator()
{return} CMapIterator an iterator for traversing the items in the list.

Returns an iterator for traversing the items in the list. This method is required by the interface IteratorAggregate.

getKeys() method
public array getKeys()
{return} array the key list

getReadOnly() method
public boolean getReadOnly()
{return} boolean whether this map is read-only or not. Defaults to false.

itemAt() method
public mixed itemAt(mixed $key)
$key mixed the key
{return} mixed the element at the offset, null if no element is found at the offset

Returns the item with the specified key. This method is exactly the same as offsetGet.

mergeArray() method
public static array mergeArray(array $a, array $b)
$a array array to be merged to
$b array array to be merged from
{return} array the merged array (the original arrays are not changed.)

Merges two arrays into one recursively.

See Also

mergeWith() method
public void mergeWith(mixed $data, boolean $recursive=true)
$data mixed the data to be merged with, must be an array or object implementing Traversable
$recursive boolean whether the merging should be recursive.

Merges iterable data into the map.

Existing elements in the map will be overwritten if their keys are the same as those in the source. If the merge is recursive, the following algorithm is performed:

  • the map data is saved as $a, and the source data is saved as $b;
  • if $a and $b both have an array indxed at the same string key, the arrays will be merged using this algorithm;
  • any integer-indexed elements in $b will be appended to $a and reindxed accordingly;
  • any string-indexed elements in $b will overwrite elements in $a with the same index;

offsetExists() method
public boolean offsetExists(mixed $offset)
$offset mixed the offset to check on
{return} boolean

Returns whether there is an element at the specified offset. This method is required by the interface ArrayAccess.

offsetGet() method
public mixed offsetGet(integer $offset)
$offset integer the offset to retrieve element.
{return} mixed the element at the offset, null if no element is found at the offset

Returns the element at the specified offset. This method is required by the interface ArrayAccess.

offsetSet() method
public void offsetSet(integer $offset, mixed $item)
$offset integer the offset to set element
$item mixed the element value

Sets the element at the specified offset. This method is required by the interface ArrayAccess.

offsetUnset() method
public void offsetUnset(mixed $offset)
$offset mixed the offset to unset element

Unsets the element at the specified offset. This method is required by the interface ArrayAccess.

remove() method
public mixed remove(mixed $key)
$key mixed the key of the item to be removed
{return} mixed the removed value, null if no such key exists.

Removes an item from the map by its key.

setReadOnly() method
protected void setReadOnly(boolean $value)
$value boolean whether this list is read-only or not

toArray() method
public array toArray()
{return} array the list of items in array
