Parse BBcode in Model instead of View?

    I know I can parse bbcode in a text field in the view public using this:
    $bbCodeParser = new XenForo_BbCode_Parser(XenForo_BbCode_Formatter_Base::create('Base', array('view' => $this)));
    $field['html'] = new XenForo_BbCode_TextWrapper($field['text'], $bbCodeParser);
    Is it possible to parse the bbcode for a string in the model instead of the view?

    Here may be working :)
    $request = new Zend_Controller_Request_Http();
    $response = new Zend_Controller_Response_Http();

    $dependencies = new XenForo_Dependencies_Public();

    $viewRenderer = new XenForo_ViewRenderer_Abstract($dependencies$response$request);
    $view = new XenForo_View($viewRendererresponse);

    $bbCodeParser = new XenForo_BbCode_Parser(XenForo_BbCode_Formatter_Base::create('Base', array('view' => $view)));
    $field['html'] = new XenForo_BbCode_TextWrapper($field['text'], $bbCodeParser);

    Seems like a lot of "new" in there. I wonder how that affects performance.

    You only need to pass in a View, when dealing with bbcode which uses templates. You can also reuse the View object and formatter object between XenForo_BbCode_Parser instances.

    This is done a bunch of time in the XenForo codebase.

    public function sendNotificationToWatchUsersOnReply(array $reply, array $thread = null, array $noAlerts = array())
                    if (!isset($reply['messageText']) && $parseBbCode)
                        $bbCodeParserText = XenForo_BbCode_Parser::create(XenForo_BbCode_Formatter_Base::create('Text'));
                        $reply['messageText'] = new XenForo_BbCode_TextWrapper($reply['message'], $bbCodeParserText);
                        $bbCodeParserHtml = XenForo_BbCode_Parser::create(XenForo_BbCode_Formatter_Base::create('HtmlEmail'));
                        $reply['messageHtml'] = new XenForo_BbCode_TextWrapper($reply['message'], $bbCodeParserHtml);

    Yep! Maybe it not good but if you simply to render so using post #3 :)

    Some bbcodes only parse if they have a $view. So when you parse the bbcode in a model, it doesnt parse specific codes.

    Parse the Bb Codes in the view, that will be the cleanest and safest solution. There are some workarounds, but I don't see why you would have to use it if you code something yourself and not try to extend a XenForo feature that parse the Bb Codes without the view (as Xon said, it happens sometimes).

    If you do need a workaround, play with the controller using the controller pre view listener, generate the view (before XenForo generates it just after ; which means this task would be done twice instead of once)
    protected static $_view;

    public static function 
    controllerPreView(XenForo_FrontController $fc,
    XenForo_ControllerResponse_Abstract &$controllerResponse,
    XenForo_ViewRenderer_Abstract &$viewRenderer,
       array &
    $viewRenderer instanceof XenForo_ViewRenderer_Json)
    $response $fc->getResponse();
    self::$_view = new XenForo_ViewPublic_Base($viewRenderer$response$containerParams);
    Once you get the view, just save it somewhere. You can't set a session variable [XenForo_Application::getSession()->set('myVariable', $data);] ; this pre view listener occurs too late ; it can only be done during the controller pre dispatch. But you should be able to set this variable using a XenForo application [XenForo_Application::set('myVariable', $data);]. Again, this workaround should be avoided.
    Insy and Nobita.Kun like this.
