getting a urlTo another controller's method should be much more concise, like so...

Reported by Joshua Paine | February 13th, 2009 @ 11:00 PM | in 0.11.1

Already can call $this->urlTo('methodName'), but to get the path for a method of another class requires instantiating it and using urlTo on the new instance. It's verbose, it takes at least to lines, and it obscures what you're actually trying to do. This would be so much nicer:


And it can be implemented something like this (Added at the beginning of urlTo):

if(strpos('::',$methodName)!==false) { list($controllerName,$methodName) = explode('::',$methodName,2); $controller = new $controllerName($this->application); return $controller->urlTo($methodName); }

You still have to Library::import the relevant class beforehand, but I'm ok with that, personally.

    ick--just noticed what lighthouse did to my code. But more importantly, the args of strpos are reversed. Let's try this again:

    if(strpos($methodName,'::')!==false) {
        list($controllerName,$methodName) = explode('::',$methodName,2);
        $controller = new $controllerName($this->application);
        return $controller->urlTo($methodName);

    In order for this to work with arguments I needed to replace this line:

    return $controller->urlTo($methodName);

    With this below:

    return call_user_func_array(array($controller, 'urlTo'), array_merge(array($methodName), $args));
