PHP provides super-global variables to facilitate access to the values extracted from the current HTTP request.

Nowadays, many applications use router components that can parse the HTTP request to configure which controller class handles the HTTP request.

This package combines the features of PHP to extract HTTP request values with the quality of the Mezon router class to retrieve HTTP request values and route parameter values using the same code.

How to start

The firs steps are quite simple

var_dump(Request::getParam('some-param', 'default'));// will be outputted 'default'

$_GET['some-param'] = 'some-value';
var_dump(Request::getParam('some-param'));// will be outputted 'some-value'

Fields priorities

In case you have the same parameters in $_GET, $_POST and other global arrays, then they will be prioritized in this way:

  • security tokens in HTTP headers
  • Router parameters
  • HTTP request headers
  • $_POST
  • $_GET

For example:

$_GET['some-param'] = 'get-value';
$_POST['some-param'] = 'post-value';

var_dump(Request::getParam('some-param'));// will be outputted 'post value'

Router parameters

You can pass your Router object to this class and fetch parameters for non-static routes:

Request::registerRouter(<your Mezon\Router object>);

Security tokens in HTTP headers

There are a way to fetch security token from headers:

  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Cgi-Authorization

For example if you will pass in headers something like that:

Authorization: Basic <some token>

And then call:

Request::getParam('session_id')

Then this call will return <some token>.

Wrappers

There are some convenient wrappers were implemented:

// will return true if the parameter exists
// will return false otherwise
Request::wasSubmitted('param-name')

Or wrapper for check-boxes:

Request::getChecked('param-name', ['switched on', 'switched off'])
Request::getChecked('param-name', [1, 0])
Request::getChecked('param-name', [true, false])

In this call the method getChecked will return the first element of the array which is passed as the second parameter. And the second element otherwise.
