The ReflectionClass::isInstance() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to check whether the specified object is an instance of the class or not.

Syntax:

// Declaring a user-defined class
class  GFG { }
  
// Initialising the instance
$Instance = new GFG();
  
// Using ReflectionClass over the
// instance GFG
$obj = new ReflectionClass('GFG');
  
// Calling isInstance() function
$A = $obj->isInstance($Instance);
  
// Getting the value true or false
var_dump($A);
