Using ObjectUtil.toString() to trace properties of an Object

If you need to get a quick view into an Object or class instance, you can use the mx.utils.ObjectUtil.toString() API included in the Flex 2 Framework.


[code]package{import flash.display.Sprite;public class ViewType extends Sprite{import mx.utils.ObjectUtil;import flash.util.trace;public function ViewType(){var o:Object = new Object();o.foo = “bar”;o.arr = [{name:”Homer”}, {name:”Bart”}];trace(ObjectUtil.toString(o));}}}[/code]This will output the object in a more human readable format like so:[code](Object)#0arr = (Array)#1[0] (Object)#2name = “Homer”[1] (Object)#3name = “Bart”foo = “bar”[/code]You can view the docs for the api here.You can download the Flex 2 beta from labs.
