$modules->get() method

Get the requested Module

  • If the module is not installed, but is installable, it will be installed, instantiated, and initialized. If you don't want that behavior, call $modules->isInstalled('ModuleName') as a conditional first.
  • You can also get/load a module by accessing it directly, like $modules->ModuleName.
  • To get a module with additional options, use $modules->getModule($name, $options) instead.

Example

// Get the MarkupAdminDataTable module
$table = $modules->get('MarkupAdminDataTable');

// You can also do this
$table = $modules->MarkupAdminDataTable;

Usage

$module = $modules->get($key);
