     Notes

BootPHP has a robust key based lookup system so you can define system messages.

Getting a message

Use the BootPHP::message() method to get a message key:

BootPHP::message('forms', 'foobar');

This will look in the `messages/forms.php` file for the `foobar` key:

<?php

return array(
    'foobar' => 'Hello, world!',
);

You can also look in subfolders and sub-keys:

BootPHP::message('forms/contact', 'foobar.bar');

This will look in the `messages/forms/contact.php` for the `foobarbar` key:

<?php

return array(
    'foobar' => array(
        'bar' => 'Hello, world!',
    ),
);

Notes

  • Don't use __() in your messages files, as these files can be cached and will not work properly.
  • Messages are merged by the cascading file system, not overwritten like classes and views.
