$input->queryString() method

Return the unsanitized query string that was part of this request, or blank if none

Note that the returned query string is not sanitized, so if you use it in any output be sure to run it through $sanitizer->entities() first. An optional assoc array param can be used to add new GET params or override existing ones.


// basic usage
$string = $input->queryString();

// usage with all arguments
$string = $input->queryString(array $overrides = []);


overrides (optional)array
