In this new blog entry, Rob Allen has shared a simple View setup that he's been using in his Zend_View setup (on the Zend Framework).
It's in the manual, but I thought I'd blog about my simple View Helper setup that ensures that I can get at the view with minimal effort. [...] his class contains the code required by Zend_View to collect an instance of the view and assign it to a protected variable. All my view helpers extend this class and so I can access the view using $this->_view.
His code creates a simple object that all of his views extend and make a single object that refers back to the view itself.
