Phalcon Views

View represents the front-end of the application. It consists of HTML files embedded inside PHP code which creates the view of the application. View provides the data to the web browser from your application.

Phalcon\Mvc\View and Phalcon\Mvc\View\Simple are responsible for the managing the view layer of MVC application.

Integrating Views with controller

Views are automatically integrated when controller completes its functionality. The entire view component looks inside the view folder of same file name whose last controller is executed.

Example: If a request made to url

Server Address
Phalcon Directory Javatpoint
Controller Phalcon
Action Intro
Parameter 911


Hierarchal Rendering

It is the default component for the view rendering and located under directory Phalcon\MVC\View. Its component automatically uses PHP itself as template engine. It has extension .phtml and view component will find following 3 files.

Name File Description
Action View app/views/posts/show.phtml This is the view related to the action. It only will be shown when the showaction is executed.
Controller Layout app/views/layouts/posts.phtml This is the view related to the controller. It only will be shown for every action executed within the controller "posts". All the code implemented in the layout will be reused for all the actions in this controller.
Main Layout app/views/index.phtml This is main action it will be shown for every controller or action executed within the application.

Simple Rendering

It is an alternate component to Phalcon\MVC\View and located under Phalcon\MVC\View\Simple. It is similar to the MVC\View but lacks hierarchy. It allows developer to control view when it is altered and its location.


Default component replacement

Now, to render we call the render() method
