wireClassName() function

Normalize a class name with or without namespace, or get namespace of class

Default behavior is to return class name without namespace.

Usage

// basic usage
$string = wireClassName($className);

// usage with all arguments
$string = wireClassName($className, $withNamespace = false, bool $verbose = false);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
classNamestring, object

Class name or object instance

withNamespace (optional)bool, int, string

Should return value include namespace? (default=false)

  • false (bool): Return only class name without namespace (default).
  • true (bool): Yes include namespace in returned value.
  • 1 (int): Return only namespace (i.e. “ProcessWire”, with no backslashes unless $verbose argument is true)
verbose (optional)bool

When namespace argument is true or 1, use verbose return value (added 3.0.143). This does the following:

  • If returning class name with namespace, this makes it include a leading backslash, i.e. \ProcessWire\Wire
  • If returning namespace only, adds leading backslash, plus trailing backslash if namespace is not root, i.e. \ProcessWire\

Return value

string null

Returns string or NULL if namespace-only requested and unable to determine

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
