This isn't in the constructor, is it?

You would need to do something like:

class GPicFile {
var $implementor = NULL;

function implementor($filename){
if (fileextension == 'jpg')
$this->implementor = new GPicFilePicture();
$this->implementor = new GPicFileMovie();

function getFileDate(){
return $this->implementor->getFileDate();

You can't have a wrapper class that returns one class or another.

You could have a FUNCTION that would return one or the other, and then
you'd have to make sure you handled either kind of object, but not a
class that pretends to be two different kinds of objects.

You can't make really make GPicFile object sometimes be a
GPicFilePicture and sometimes be a GPicFileMovie...

You could sort of do this if PHP had multiple inheritence, but it

There might be something in the fancy new PHP5 stuff about interface
and whatnot that would be more elegant than the hack above.

But you're on your own for that.

Like Music?
