< API16:JView

The "API16" namespace is an archived namespace. This page contains information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, it will not be improved and its content may be incomplete and/or contain broken links.

Description

Method to add a model to the view. We support a multiple model single view system by which models are referenced by classname. A caveat to the classname referencing is that any classname prepended by JModel will be referenced by the name without JModel, eg. JModelCategory is just Category.



Syntax

setModel(&$model, $default=false)
Parameter Name Default Value Description
&$model The model to add to the view.
$default false Is this the default model?

Returns

object The added model
