Parse: Check if object exists before fetch

I have a column of type array. It stores pointers to other objects. So in my loop I have something like this:

foreach ($artworkArr as $a) { $a->fetch(); $artworkName[] = $a->get('title'); }

Problem here is, fetch immediately throws an exception if the pointer points to an invalid object.

How can I check if the object exists before calling the fetch method?

-------------Problems Reply------------

Just try with:

foreach ($artworkArr as $a) {
if ($a instanceof ExpectedClass) {
$artworkName[] = $a->get('title');

Or if you don't know the ExpectedClass, you can use method_exists on the $a object:

method_exists($a, 'fetch')
