Bug #36308 ReflectionProperty::getDocComment() does not reflect extended class commentary
Submitted: 2006-02-07 00:33 UTC Modified: 2006-02-08 01:39 UTC
From: Assigned: helly
Status: Closed Package: Unknown/Other Function
PHP Version: 5.1.2 OS: Irrelevant
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2006-02-07 00:33 UTC]
When using ReflectionProperty::getDocComment() to get the comments for a property in an extended class, it returns the comments for the base class, not the extended one.

Reproduce code:
class Base {
    /** Base comment block */
    public $foo = 'bar';

class Extended extends Base {
    /** Extended commentary */
    public $foo = 'zim';

$reflect = new ReflectionClass('Extended');
$props = $reflect->getProperties();
$docs = $props[0]->getDocComment();
print $docs;
// should output "Extended commentary"
// but is in fact "Base comment block"

Expected result:
/** Extended commentary */

Actual result:
/** Base comment block */
