Calling join(",",$array_of_objects) will return "object,object,object..." even if all of those objects have toString functions defined.

"It is worth noting that the __toString method will only be called when it is directly combined with echo() or print()."

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

Atm (5.0, 5.1) __toString() is only being support by echo and print (see above). We decided to look into this issue after 5.1 is out.
