Using variables inside an included file, OOP related.


Recommended Posts

Hello. Trying to learn MVC better by creating my own little framework to understand how it works.


Things were going OK til now.


I have a base class:


* Base class most classes will extend from.
* Simply put, this class just has methods that
* most, if not all, classes will need.

class Application {

public function includer($path) {

	if (is_readable($path) == true) {
	} else {
		die("404 not found =[");




So the above method 'includer' just sees if a file exists/is readable and if so, include it.


Here's where I am using said method.


class Index extends Application {

function __construct($method = 'view') {
	// load the index model
	include(ROOT . '/app/models/model.index.php');

	// Invoke requested method.

public function view() {

	$name = 'Smith';
	$this->includer(ROOT . '/app/views/view.index.php');	# Problem here, i think



view.index.php just contains

<?php echo $name; ?>



All that is called from the index page, with this line of code




Now, in line

$this->includer(ROOT . '/app/views/view.index.php');	# Problem here, i think


If i get rid of $this->includer, the script will work and say 'Smith'.


If i have $this->includer(...) or parent::includer(...), it doesn't work.

$name is local to the view function and you are including the view file in a separate function.  There are multiple ways to do this, but what comes to mind are the following:  You either need to pass the vars to the includer function (maybe as an array) and then extract() them there.  Or better, at some point set a class var $this->data or something and use that when you need it.


I'll give this some more thought after lunch :)
