DevShed has posted part three in their "Simulating the Model-View-Controller Schema in PHP" series today, this time focusing on the last of the three, the View.
All right, after refreshing the topics covered previously, as well as clarifying some key concepts with reference to the concrete subject of this series, this journey will continue by constructing yet another practical example to expand your overall knowledge of object-based programming with PHP. In particular, it's designed to show you to use a MVC-driven relationship in another real-world situation.
If you're wondering to what other cases this relationship can be specifically applied, then I have good news for you. In this final article, I'll show you how to implement the MVC schema, in order to generate different outputs (or views) from a given MySQL data set.
They start over with their code, generating a new schema based around a MySQL processing class. The controller pulls its information from the database (our model) as to how the results should be displayed. Next they describe the model to help interface with the actual table and finishing it off with the output class, resulting in either XML or plain-text output of the user information.
