Smarty allows access to PHP objects through the templates. There are two ways to access them. One way is to register objects to the template, then use access them via syntax similar to custom functions. The other way is to assign objects to the templates and access them much like any other assigned variable. The first method has a much nicer template syntax. It is also more secure, as a registered object can be restricted to certain methods or properties. However, a registered object cannot be looped over or assigned in arrays of objects, etc. The method you choose will be determined by your needs, but use the first method whenever possible to keep template syntax to a minimum.


If security is enabled, no private methods or functions can be accessed (begininning with "_"). If a method and property of the same name exist, the method will be used.


You can restrict the methods and properties that can be accessed by listing them in an array as the third registration parameter.


By default, parameters passed to objects through the templates are passed the same way custom functions get them. An associative array is passed as the first parameter, and the smarty object as the second. If you want the parameters passed one at a time for each argument like traditional object parameter passing, set the fourth registration parameter to false.

一般情况下,参数通过模板传递给对象的方法和自定义函数获得参数的方法是一样的。一个混合数组作为第一个参数传递,而SMARTY对象作为第二个。如果你想像传统的对象参数一样一次传递一个参数,设置第四个参数为 FALSE即可。

Example 15-1. using a registered or assigned object

// the object

class My_Object() {
	function meth1($params, &$smarty_obj) {
		return "this is my meth1";

$myobj = new My_Object;
// registering the object (will be by reference)
// if we want to restrict access to certain methods or properties, list them
// if you want to use the traditional object parameter format, pass a boolean of false

// We can also assign objects. Assign by ref when possible.
$smarty->assign_by_ref("myobj", $myobj);



{* access our registered object *}
{foobar->meth1 p1="foo" p2=$bar}

{* you can also assign the output *}
{foobar->meth1 p1="foo" p2=$bar assign="output"}
the output was {$output)

{* access our assigned object *}
