  • Last Updated : 30 Dec, 2019

The ReflectionParameter::canBePassedByValue() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to return TRUE if the parameter can be passed by value, otherwise returns FALSE.

Syntax:

bool ReflectionParameter::canBePassedByValue( void )

Parameters: This function does not accept any parameter.

Return Value: This function returns TRUE if the parameter can be passed by value, otherwise returns FALSE.

Below programs illustrate the ReflectionParameter::canBePassedByValue() function in PHP:

Program 1:




<?php
  
// Initializing a user-defined class Company1
class Company1
{
    public function GFG( $Parameter){}
}
   
// Initializing a subclass Company2
class Company2 extends Company1
{
}
   
// Using the ReflectionParameter over the above class
$A = new ReflectionParameter(['Company2', 'GFG'], 0); 
   
// Calling the canBePassedByValue() function
$B = $A->canBePassedByValue();
   
// Getting the boolean value TRUE if the 
// parameter can be passed by value, 
// otherwise returns FALSE. 
var_dump($B);
?>

Output:

bool(true)

Program 2:




<?php
   
// Initializing some user-defined classes
class Department1
{
    protected function HR($Parameter1){}
}
class Department2
{
    final function Coding( Exception $Parameter2, Exception $Parameter3){}
}
class Department3
{
    function Marketing($Parameter4, $Parameter5, $Parameter6){}
}
   
// Using the ReflectionParameter over the above classes
$A = new ReflectionParameter(['Department1', 'HR'], 0);
$B = new ReflectionParameter(['Department2', 'Coding'], 1);
$C = new ReflectionParameter(['Department3', 'Marketing'], 2);
   
// Calling the canBePassedByValue() function and
// getting the boolean value TRUE if the 
// parameter can be passed by value, 
// otherwise returns FALSE. 
var_dump($A->canBePassedByValue());
var_dump($B->canBePassedByValue());
var_dump($C->canBePassedByValue());
