protected method

Render a string template after applying context filters Use examples in the Html::link() method: return $this->_render(__METHOD__, 'link', compact('title', 'url', 'options'), $scope);


  • string $method

    name of method that is calling the render (for context filters)

  • string $string

    template key (in Helper::_strings) to render

  • array $params

    associated array of template inserts {:key} will be replaced by value

  • array $options

    Available options:

    • 'handlers' array: Before inserting $params inside the string template, $this->_context's handlers are applied to each value of $params according to the key (e.g $params['url'], which is processed by the 'url' handler via $this->_context->applyHandler()). The 'handlers' option allow to set custom mapping beetween $params's key and $this->_context's handlers. e.g. the following handler: 'handlers' => array('url' => 'path') will make $params['url'] to be processed by the 'path' handler instead of the 'url' one.
