Hi to all,

I published a com_hello for Joomla!1.6 at http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/helloworld_1_6/

It uses
-JForms
-compound controllers
-categories (it seems to be still buggy)
-autopopulated models
-JModelItem and JModelList

Actually it can only be used with the experimental branches.

I updated this component. It works with the J!1.6 alpha version

Hi,

Where the function "_populateState" (it is in front end model file)
is called from?

thanks,

It's called by the J!1.6 models (look at code in librairies/joomla/
application/component/model*.php

I noticed in reviewing the com_content of the current branch that it
is using:

jimport('joomla.database.query');

and

$this->_db->setQuery($query);
$data = $this->_db->loadObject();

whereas in the com_hello it still uses

$db = & $this->getDBO();
$db->setQuery($query->toString(), 0, 1);
$msg = & $db->loadObject();

is there an advantage to one or the other? In the com_content they
don't use $query->toString in the setQuery method. Just curious why it
is used in com_hello?

I have a ton of other questions after reading through the source of
the new com_content... where does all of that get discussed? I don't
see a large amount of discussion on this mailing list (or maybe I
haven't looked far enough back), especially on ACL development. Is
there an IRC channel or somewhere else where this stuff gets
discussed?

Thanks!

...before you answer the 'where else is this discussed' I'm also on
the joomla-dev-cms list, and there still seems to be some
communication that has to be taking place on development that goes on
elsewhere (assuming). I'm just anxious to understand all the workings
and obviously it's not to a documentation stage.

Hi Zachariah

The JQuery class now has a __toString magic method and setQuery casts
the incoming query to a string. It might not have been in when
com_hello was first created. My preference is to now use:

$this->_db->setQuery($query);

Hope this helps.

@Zachariah,

I will change the code of com_hello to be like com_content when my
summer holidays will be finished (com_hello was written before J!1.6
alpha was released)
