<div class="row">
<input type="text" name="test" id="test" >

Mvc - Difference Between A Library Class And A Model Class?

Apr 9, 2010

so i want to follow the mvc conventions but haven't really got the hang of it. i've got problem understanding the explicit difference between a model and a library class and how they relate to each other.

eg. i want to create classes to add/edit contacts and also adding them to a group. i thought it should be divided into 2 classes: Contact and Group. The first class would create a contact. The other one will add the contact to a group. I thought this dividing would be perfect cause their logic is isolated from each others. Contact doesn't care if Group exists or not. Group doesn't care about how a Contact looks like.

So Contact will have these methods:

$Contact->add($name, $email, $address, $phone) // create an entry in database
$Contact->delete($id) // delete the entry in database
$Contact->edit($id, $name, $email, $address, $phone) // edit the entry in database
And Group:
$Group->createGroup($name) // create a group in database
$Group->delete($id) // delete a group in database
$Group->addContact($groupId, $contactId) // add a contact to a group in database

So these classes apparently work with the database. Does this mean that these are models? Or are they library classes that eg. should be put in SYSTEM/LIBRARIES in CodeIgniter. If it's the latter one, how do a Model in this case looks like using the classes?

And how would a controller look like in this scenario? Would be great if someone could give me the big picture!

Collecting Form Data Without Knowing Textfield Names?

Sep 10, 2010

I have a giant form, an order pad for internal employees, that has hundreds of text fields. The names of the text fields are product codes, the values that are returned are quantities.

Example: <input type = 'text' name='ABC123 Product 1' size='3' maxlength='3'>

I need to collect the data from the order pad and generate an email to the office with the order. How do I parse the incoming form to collect the text field name and value?I am guessing this will be done via $HTTP_POST_VARS but do not know how to go out and get only the field names and values where something has been input by the user.

How To Model A Templating Class

Jan 17, 2010

I am writing a basic templating class for my own project. The basic usage is this:

$template = new Template('template_file.php');
$template->assignVariable('pageTitle', 'Home page');
Contents of 'template_file.php':
<?php print $pageTitle; ?>

This is what template class does step by step:

Stores variables in a private array when assignVariable method is called When render method is called, extracts stored variables, includes template file in a ob_start() and ob_end_clean() block. Stores output in a variable with ob_get_contents() and then prints stored output.

I know this is a very simple templating class but works as expected. The question is should I delegate the including the template file to another class? I had this question when I was writing the unit tests for this class. I thought that file system interaction should be encapsulated. What do you think? If you think that it should not, how can I mock including a file in my tests?

Maybe I just pass the contents of the template file to the class like this:

$templateContent = file_get_contents('template_file.php');
$template = new Template($templateContent);

Edit: I decided to encapsulate the input process of template class for the sake of writing better unit tests and encapsulation. But as johannes pointed out, I needed to use eval() for that purpose which seemed not right. Johannes pointed me to the direction of stream wrappers for mocking the including in unit tests. But that inspired a new idea on me. Here is what I am going to do; I will continue to use include() in my template class but this time with stream wrappers. I will pass protocol handler to my template class while initializing it. This way I can create my own stream wrappers for fetching template data from database or using a local variable. Here are the examples:

Use Of XML For Model Class And Structuring?

Dec 23, 2009

I am currently working on a little application: The structure follows in some way the MVC pattern. For short it has the basic things, Models, Controllers etc. Now I am sitting here and do not know whether :

The SQL database is only managed by a model through methods the programmer gives him like: "Hey we have name record so we need a getName() method".

The model dynamically creates the whole database and methods, using a XML file, with which even a non-programmer can design a database.

And should the model class check every/a single request whether it is a valid request e.g. getName() won't work on the houses_tbl, and if it is not valid it does not perform the query, and sends back an error message instead?

I have absolutely no idea how to handle my model class, which structure it should follow and how much the programmer should have to put into a new model so it works as he wants it to work.

Major points: perfomance (which way saves the most perfomance) KISS (which way is simple enough, so a second team mate can understand my logic) extendability (can I extend the structure)

Codeigniter How To Map A Class Sent To A Model

Jun 2, 2011

I have a SectorModel with this function:

public function update(Sector $sector) {
$this->db->where('sector_id', $sector->getScetor_id());
return $this->db->update(_SECTOR_, $sector);

There are times that I’ll change only the name of the Sector object:

$Sector = new Sector();
$Sector->setSector_name = 'test';
The generated select looks like:

UPDATE realestate_sector SET sector_name = 'teste', sector_description = NULL It will update but will set all other properties to NULL because it was not set on my object. Right now, I have to fill the whole object before sending it. Is there a way to map the Sector class and update only what was sent on the object?

Retrieving Data In Symfony Using The Model Class?

$ecosystem = new Ecosystem();

By the way, which is the preferred method to do this kind of things?I've been developing with CakePHP and making queries directly with Doctrine doesn't seem natural to me. What if I decide to change to Propel tomorrow?

Unable To Call Set Or Create From With In A Model Class?

Oct 8, 2010

I'm working in a CakePHP Model class, writing a function that is supposed to perform a whole bunch of manipulations on the model. I'm trying to follow the skinny controller, fat model idea. However, I don't seem to be able to call any of the model's functions from with in my model. Something hasn't been initialized yet, because I get an SQL error when I do:

Warning (512): SQL Error: 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1 [CORE/cake/libs/model/datasources/dbo_source.php, line 681]


It looks as if the table name hasn't been set internally somewhere. My model looks like this:

class Search extends AppModel {
var $name='Search';
var $hasMany = 'SearchResult';[code]....

I know everything the Model needs has already been created works find, because calling that exact same sequence of functions works fine from the Model controller. Like so:

function search($query) {
$this->Search->set('query', $query);

That works fine. So what gives? What's going on here?

MVC Authentication - Create A Separate Auth Class (model)?

Create a separate Auth class (model?) that simply searches for a record of a user and returns a new User object if found.Add "login" functionality to the User class that will allow me to log my user in as any User object that I'd like.

One View For Two Models: Use A Base Model Class To Make It Easier?

May 9, 2011

A website for managing hotels.Another kind of Hotel model has been added over the course of the project, so now they are two.Now the boss wants the list of Hotels to include both kinds of Hotels. was thinking of the following possible solutions:Invent a superclass containing the common properties needed to display in the list of Hotels, and override appropriately.Hack my way in the view. It has one loop now, producing HTML code on the way (obviously). If this works, there will be two loops.The problem I see with approach #1 is this: "Hotel1 extends BaseHotel1", "Hotel2 extends BaseHotel2". So OK, I will create a superclass, then what?The problem with approach #2 is this: I am still far from a "pro" Symfony developer and I am not sure the view in question will have access to more than one model methods at all. Maybe render-partials from another module would workSo, how do I do this? Do you think the problems I listed are easy to solve? Do you see another approachesI

Web Form Processing By Means Of A Form Model Description?

Apr 22, 2011

often, I get asked to write a small mini application which basically presents a form and verifies certain values and conditions once submitted to the server. Thus, I started to generalize the process.

Now, the app loads a YAML specification of the form and a generalized controller manages its processing: Presents an instructional welcome page, presents the form, receives and validates values. Finally, it hands over the verified result to the persistence layer and informs the user, that his data/request has been saved.

The YAML based approach could eventual lead to a solution, in which the client writes himself a form model - without knowing a programming language. I wonder, if I reinvent the wheel. Does someone know of a standard solution?

CakePHP - Access He Form Helper's "current" Model As Supplied To $form->create()

Jan 7, 2011

In my CakePHP 1.3 application, I need a form control that is: Comprised of multiple form elements, and Reusable in more than one form. I'd like to avoid code duplication if I can. So, I'm creating an element that outputs my form control, and have hit a roadblock when it comes to populating the control with values on an edit action. Now, when you're using the default field types, CakePHP does this for you, but I need to get information out of $this->data and do it myself in this case. The problem is that $this->data looks like this:

'Model' => array( /* fields from Model */ ),
'AnotherModel' => array( /* fields from AnotherModel */ )

Within my reusable element, I don't know what model my field belongs to. However, I told this information to the Form Helper when I called $form->create() (in the view that includes the element I'm writing), so it seems like it should be able to tell me. And indeed, the API documentation for the FormHelper class tells of a defaultModel property, but sadly, this property is empty. Now, the simple solution is to pass the model in as a parameter. I can do that. But, I'd like to avoid parameter bloat where I can, and it seems like this ought to be possible, but I can't figure out how. Is there a way?

ZF - Doctrine 2 - Model Classes Or Lightweight Model - Service Layer ?

I am integrating Zend Framework and Doctrine 2, and I am discovering the Service layer. Now I understand (am I wrong ?) that I have 2 architectures possible : A model, where classes contain domain logic, i.e. properties + getters/setters + complex methods A lightweight model, where classes contain properties + getters/setters and a Service layer, containing domain logic, and modifying the model classes

What are the pros/cons of each ? It seems weird to me to loose OOP by putting domain logic as external to the model, so I don't understand why use a Service layer.

CakePHP: Access Model In Other Model / In App_model.php For Validation Of Banknumber

May 7, 2011

I am wondering how I could use data from a Model B while I am validating Model A, here to check if an entered Banknumber is a correct one: My Users specify their bankaccount during the registration. E.g. the "banknumber". I am validating this the normal way in my user.php model

var $validate = array(
'banknumber' => array(
'minLength' => array(
'rule' => array('minLength', 8),
'message' => '...',
'required' => true,

Now I want to know if the entered Banknumber is a real one, so I got a table "Banks" in my DB with all real Banknumbers, and I am using some own validation functions which I specify in app_model.php.


But this is never working, because while I am validating the User-Model, I can only use this one in an app_model - function, accessing it with $this->name or so... a $this->Bank is NOT possible, I get:


Is there ANY way to import/access other models in a function in app_model.php?

Codeigniter Form Validation To Model Logic?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm working on my first codeigniter application and have encountered some confusion around handling post data.

More specifically, I understand the role of $this->form_validation->set_rules(), and how set_value() works to repopulate input values when the validation failed, but what I can't figure out is if $this->input->post is the same value as the set_value equivalent.

I understand that the majority of validation rules would have a boolean result, however what about ones like trim|htmlspecialchars - these also have the benefit of preparing the data for db queries.

So in my model, can I access the inputs after being processed by the form_validation library, or should I do the additional preparation inside the model directly onto $this->input->post('variable')?

My gut tells me that I should add final processing like htmlspecialchars right before the sql in the model, as it is really a db specific operation (I would not want & instead of & in my form inputs, but I would want & in the database).

Incidentally in my reading I did come across $this->validation->variable which would appear to have been the answer to my question in previous CI versions.

Put Form Validation Rules In The Controller Or Model?

Apr 13, 2011

On one hand form validation could be seen as part of the application logic and therefore belonging in the model.On the other hand, it deals directly with the input coming from view and handles displaying errors, etc. From that angle it makes more sense to put it into controllers.Which one is the right approach from the MVC point of view?P.S my form validation actually consists only of writing a list of fields, their rules, and passing it on to a form validation library, which returns true/false on whether it passed validation or not.Example:

$this->form_validation->set_rules('name', 'Name', 'required');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('email', 'Email', 'required|valid_email');
