Symfony\Component\Serializer\Normalizer\NormalizableInterface

interface NormalizableInterface

Defines the most basic interface a class must implement to be normalizable.

If a normalizer is registered for the class and it doesn't implement the Normalizable interfaces, the normalizer will be used instead.

Methods

array|scalar normalize(NormalizerInterface $normalizer, string|null $format = null, array $context = array())

Normalizes the object into an array of scalars|arrays.

Details

at line 38
public array|scalar normalize(NormalizerInterface $normalizer, string|null $format = null, array $context = array())

Normalizes the object into an array of scalars|arrays.

It is important to understand that the normalize() call should normalize recursively all child objects of the implementor.

Parameters

NormalizerInterface $normalizer The normalizer is given so that you can use it to normalize objects contained within this object.
string|null $format The format is optionally given to be able to normalize differently based on different output formats.
array $context Options for normalizing this object

Return Value

array|scalar
