I tried to build a singleton class, but it doesn't work. The function i used do not return anything.
Code on (Hope it works)

//-----------------singleton class------------------------
 final class SearchResult {

   private static $instance = NULL;
   private function __construct() {
   public static function getInstance() {
       if (self::$instance === NULL) {
           self::$instance = new self;
       return self::$instance;
   public function getResultTable(){

   	return 'Test- Result';

// try to use the class
// [...]
function Test(){
	$searchResult = SearchResult::getInstance();
	return 'Result: '.$searchResult->getResultTable;
// [...]

You forgot the brackets after your function call.
