Template::getRoles() method

Get the role pages that are part of this template

  • This method returns a blank PageArray if roles haven’t yet been loaded into the template.
  • If the roles have previously been loaded as an array, then this method converts that array to a PageArray and returns it.
  • If you make changes to returned roles, make sure to set it back to the template again with setRoles(). It’s preferable to make changes with addRole() and removeRole() methods instead.

Usage

$items = $template->getRoles();

// usage with all arguments
$items = $template->getRoles(string $type = 'view');

Arguments
