Zend\View

The ViewEvent

The view layer of Zend Framework 2 incorporates and utilizes a custom Zend\EventManager\Event implementation - Zend\View\ViewEvent. This event is created during Zend\View\View::getEvent() and is passed directly to all the events that method triggers.

The ViewEvent adds accessors and mutators for the following:

  • Model object, typically representing the layout view model.
  • Renderer object.
  • Request object.
  • Response object.
  • Result object.

The methods it defines are:

  • setModel(Model $model)
  • getModel()
  • setRequest($request)
  • getRequest()
  • setResponse($response)
  • getResponse()
  • setRenderer($renderer)
  • getRenderer()
  • setResult($result)
  • getResult()

Order of events

The following events are triggered, in the following order:

ViewEvent Events
Name Constant Description
renderer ViewEvent::EVENT_RENDERER Render the view, with the help of renderers.
renderer.post ViewEvent::EVENT_RENDERER_POST Triggers after the view is rendered.
response ViewEvent::EVENT_RESPONSE Populate the response from the view.
