Adding a custum controller to a page

Before CMS version 3.1 we used a the service() method in a specific entiry to write any custom controller logic. This was a poor sollution. We descided to refactor this.

Creating a full controller

Modify the entity

  • Add the SlugActionInterface to the entity.
  • Add the getControllerAction method
class HomePage implements SlugActionInterface
{
    ...

    public function getControllerAction()
    {
        return AppBundle:HomePageController:FooMethod;

        // or return a service.

        return appbundle.controller.home:fooAction;
    }
}

Create or modify the controller

namespace App\Bundle\Controller;

class HomePageController extends Controller
{
    ...

    /**
     * Return a new Response or just an array with the data for your pagetemplate.
     */
    public function fooAction(Request $request)
    {
        ...
    }
}
