The WebRequest class which encapsulates getting at data passed in the URL or via a POSTed form, handling remove of "magic quotes" slashes, stripping illegal input characters and normalizing Unicode sequences.
You can access the standard WebRequest through RequestContext.php.
You should not create additional instances of this class.
Instead create a DerivativeRequest or use FauxRequest if there is no user request context.
getVal: get a scalar or null if the parameter was not passed
getInt: same as before, but the value returned is an integer
getBool: same as getVal, but returns a boolean value
getArray: get an array or null if the parameter was not passed. If the parameter is a scalar, it will return an array with a single element.
getCheck: return a boolean whether the parameter was passed, this is useful for checkboxes.
getCookie: get a cookie from the $_COOKIE jar
wasPosted: returns a bool whether the request was posted
... many more, this is a partial list.
WebRequestUpload is an object to access the $_FILES array. It should only be called by WebRequest. A WebRequestUpload object is generated by WebRequest::getUpload().
__construct( $request, $key )
FauxRequest is a class extending WebRequest. Its purpose is to emulate a request for testing or prototyping. FauxRequest should be avoided in production code.
Also see API:Calling internally for an example.
