class Foo {
    public static 
$staticProperty 'foobar';
    
    public 
$property 'barfoo';
    protected 
$privateProperty 'foofoo';
}

$reflectionClass = new ReflectionClass('Foo');

var_dump($reflectionClass->getProperty('staticProperty')->getValue());
var_dump($reflectionClass->getProperty('property')->getValue(new Foo));

$reflectionProperty $reflectionClass->getProperty('privateProperty');
$reflectionProperty->setAccessible(true);
