Rob Allen's Blog: Zend Framework's Flash Messenger action helper

Rob Allen has a new post to his blog today about a handy helper that comes with the Zend Framework to help you store messages between requests.

I've talked about Zend Framework's action helpers before, but haven't covered any of the action helpers that are supplied with Zend Framework. FlashMessenger is a helper that allows you to store messages between requests. The most common use I have for it is for a "saved" message after doing an edit of an item that then redirects back to a list.

He includes an example of this helper in action in storing a sample message and pulling it back out on the other side. The message insert also includes a redirect() call and the output has a code snippet to check the messages property to see if there's any to show.
