Hi Friends, While developing cakePHP web application we get so many problems and difficulties. Some days ago i got one problem in which I wanted to call controller action or controller function from view file. We can’t directly call controller function in view file. So I have found one function in cakePHP by which we can call any controller method/action/function from any location in cakePHP or from view.
requestAction function calls a controller’s action from any location and returns data from the action. See below :
Above is code by which you can call controller method/action/function get_client_data from any location or view files. If you use above code it means you are calling client controller and calling get_client_data of client controller. Also you can see that I have passed $clientid with URL, $clientid is dynamic client id which we can passed automatically inside for loop to get client data evertime for loop runs.
When this function calls in view it execute get_client_data function and then return result from get_client_data function in $clientdata variable. In this way we can call controller function from any location or from view.
