If you check out array_filter without a callback, you’ll notice that it will basically check each array key to make sure it doesn’t equal false. If you have an object, you get call of the properties as an array using get_object_vars. This quick snippet will allow you to look at an object and verify each property is non-false (or non-empty).

if (array_filter(get_object_vars($object)) == get_object_vars($object)) {
  // each property is non-empty

Simple and sometimes useful.
