setCallbackFunction() -- Sets a callback function.


Sets a callback function. Sigma templates can contain simple function calls. This means that the author of the template can add a special placeholder to it: func_h1("embedded in h1") Sigma will parse the template for these placeholders and will allow you to define a callback function for them. Callback will be called automatically when the block containing such function call is parse()'d.

Please note that arguments to these template functions can contain variable placeholders: func_translate('Hello, {username}'), but not blocks or other function calls.

This should NOT be used to add logic (except some presentation one) to the template. If you use a lot of such callbacks and implement business logic through them, then you're reinventing the wheel. Consider using XML/XSLT, native PHP or some other template engine.

function h_one($arg)
    return '<h1>' . $arg . '</h1>';
// ...  
$tpl = new HTML_Template_Sigma(' ... ');
// ...  
$tpl->setCallbackFunction('h1', 'h_one');
// ...
func_h1('H1 Headline')
