Lack of Interest New ControllerHelper Request

    'addOnOptions' => $this->_getAddOnModel()->getAddOnOptionsListIfAvailable(),
    'addOnSelected' => (isset($entry['addon_id']) ? $entry['addon_id'] : $addOnModel->getDefaultAddOnId())
    is being used very often in admin controllers

    I would request to move this to a own controllerhelper. Then it would become reusable and we would need less code if we would want to use it in our own controllers:cool:

    e.g. something like following code would be enough

    class Dev_ControllerHelper_AddOn extends XenForo_ControllerHelper_Abstract{

      * @param null $selectedAddonId
      * @param bool $includeCustomOptions
      * @param bool $includeXenForoOptions
      * @return array
    public function getDefaultViewParams($selectedAddonId null$includeCustomOptions true$includeXenForoOptions true){
    /** @var XenForo_Model_AddOn $addOnModel */
    $addOnModel $this->_controller->getModelFromCache('XenForo_Model_AddOn');
    $viewParams = array(
    'addOnOptions' => $addOnModel->getAddOnOptionsListIfAvailable($includeCustomOptions,$includeXenForoOptions),
    'addOnSelected' => (isset($selectedAddonId) ? $selectedAddonId $addOnModel->getDefaultAddOnId())


    // usage in controller:
    $viewParams += $this->getHelper('Dev_ControllerHelper_AddOn')->getDefaultViewParams();

    $viewParams += $this->getHelper('Dev_ControllerHelper_AddOn')->getDefaultViewParams($template['addon_id']);
