    I am having problems extending a class correctly, or maby it is not possible?

    Norsk går forsåvidt fint, er bare vant til engelsk :D



    class extDOMDocument extends DOMDocument {
    public function innerHTML($element){
    $innerHTML = "";
    $children = $element->childNodes;
    foreach ($children as $child) {
    $innerHTML .= $element->ownerDocument->saveHTML($child);
    return $innerHTML;

    $dom = new extDOMDocument('1.0');
    $dom->loadHTML('<div id="first">First div</div><div id="second">Second div</div><div id="Third">Third div</div>');

    // This works
    echo $dom->innerHTML($dom->getElementById('second'));

    // This would be better - but doesnt work.
    echo $dom->getElementById('second')->innerHTML();

    UPDATE: More thoughts around my OOP question

    I understand the reason now, however do not know how to solve it. getElementById() creates a new DOMElement which is not extended from extDOMDocument or DOMDocument it seems - which I assumed. That explains the reason for the method not being found in my wanted functionality.

    From what I read of this I could rewrite the function DOMDocument::getElementById() to use an extended version of DOMElement. Then again - I do not know what the code for the function DOMDocument::getElementById() is...

    a) Is there a way to find the code for DOMDocument::getElementById so I could override it from my extDOMDocument

    b) Can I extend a class - then override the original class with the extended one? This way I could extend the DOMElement with my innerHTML() function.

    Interesting links that could have sollution, I tried however didnt succeed
