Wire::error() method

Record an non-fatal error message in the system-wide notices.

  • This method automatically identifies the error as coming from this class.
  • You should still make fatal errors throw a WireException (or class derived from it).

Example

$this->error("This is the notice text"); 
$this->error("This notice is also logged", true);
$this->error("This notice is only shown in debug mode", Notice::debug);
$this->error("This notice allows <em>markup</em>", Notice::allowMarkup);
$this->error("Notice using multiple flags", Notice::debug | Notice::logOnly);

Usage

// basic usage
$wire->error($text);

// usage with all arguments
$wire->error($text, $flags = 0);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
textstring, array, Wire

  • Notice::allowMarkup (constant): Indicates notice should allow the use of HTML markup tags.

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
