Copies the object fields and corresponding values to an associative array.
array toArray( [string $keyPrefix = ''], [boolean $rawValues = false], [boolean $excludeLazy = false], [boolean|integer|string|array $inludeRelated = false]) )
keyPrefix: an optional prefix to prepend to each fields' keys.
rawValues: optional flag to get the raw value (true) or to use xPDOObject->get(). Typically will want to use ->get().
excludeLazy: An option flag indicating if you want to exclude lazy fields from the resulting array; the default behavior is to include them which means the object will query the database for the lazy fields before providing the value.
includeRelated: Describes if and how to include loaded related object fields. * As an integer all loaded related objects in the graph up to that level of depth will be included. * As a string, only loaded related objects matching the JSON graph representation will be included. * As an array, only loaded related objects matching the graph array will be included. * As boolean true, all currently loaded related objects will be included.
Get the values of the object in array format:
$object->set('name','John Lo'); $object->set('email','email@example.com'); $a = $object->toArray(); print_r($a); // prints "Array ( [name] => John Lo [email] => firstname.lastname@example.org )"
Get the values of the object, but with their keys prefixed with 'dev_'
$object->set('name','Mark'); $object->set('version','1.0'); $a = $object->toArray('dev_'); print_r($a); // prints "Array ( [dev_name] => Mark [dev_version] => 1.0 )"
