PHP program to call a base class constructor from the derived class

Here, we are going to learn how to call a base class constructor from the derived class in PHP?
Submitted by Nidhi, on November 20, 2020

Here, we will call the constructor of the parent class from the constructor of the child class, here we need to use the parent keyword with :: (scope resolution operator).

Program/Source Code:

The source code to call the base class constructor from the derived class is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

//PHP program to call a base class constructor 
//from the derived class.
class Base
    function __construct()
        echo "Base:constructor  called<br>";

class Derived extends Base
    function __construct()
        echo "Derived:constructor  called<br>";

$dObj = new Derived();


Base:constructor called
Derived:constructor called


In the above program, we created two classes Base and Derived. Here, we inherited the Base class into the derived class using the extends keyword.

Both Base and Derived classes contain constructors. Here, we called the parent class constructor from the child class constructor using the parent keyword.

At last, we created the object $dObj of Derived class then the constructor of the derived class gets called that will call the constructor of Base class using parent keyword that will print the appropriate message on the webpage.
