PHP Object-Oriented PHP Basics Building the Recipe Magic Methods

Can we use construct on an array?

It works great for setting the title, but how can we pass an array of multiple ingredients?

1 Answer

-Pass an array of associative ingredient arrays.

-Loop through the array, calling the setIngredient method for each associative ingredient array.

$ingredients = array(
  array('name'=>'firstname','measure'=>'cups'),
  array('name'=>'secondname','measure'=>'cups')
)

new Recipe($ingredients);

__construct($ings) {
  foreach($ings as $ing) { 
    $this->setIngredient($ing); 
  }
 }

Awesome, so cool. Thanks Stef Brands !!
