PHP - Rewrite protected method in extended class

Hello
Is it possible to rewrite /replace a protected method in the extended class, in php?

Hello
Yes, you can change the protected attribute of the method in the extended class:

Code: Select all

class A {   protected function f1(){     return 'abc';   } } class B extends A {   public function f1(){     return 'xyz';   } } $ob =  new B; echo $ob->f1();  // xyz 
In the same way, you can rewrite the protected method, maintaining the same attribute:

Code: Select all

class A {   protected function f1(){     return 'abc';   } } class B extends A {   protected function f1(){     return 'xyz';   }   public function f2(){     return 123 . $this->f1();   } } $ob =  new B; echo $ob->f2();  // 123xyz
