Helpers - donpwinston - 04-20-2017

I noticed that making my own helper functions does not work?  Angry

form validation and sessions appear to work!  Smile

More specifics are always helpful if you want the problem to get fixed. Smile

Are you seeing errors, the file not loading, etc?

helper('bnc'); //bnc.php is in Helper folder and contains the function states()
print "<pre>" . print_r(states(), TRUE) . "</pre>";

When I call the function I get 'Call to undefined function App\Controllers\states()'

Sounds like a possible bug. Could you post an issue over at GitHub so that I don't forget about it?

Also - have you done any checking of what's happening in the code yourself? If not, no biggy, but you're using Alpha-quality software at the moment, so that's probably a good practice to get into. Smile

The helper file needs to be named 'bnc_helper'.php

Thanks. Blush
