Can't access model class in sub-controller


I'm faced with what seems to be an unusual problem. I'm working on a BSP appl. with MVC.

The flow is -> main.view -> & I have a model class which is instantiated in the do_request of

My need is to pass the instance of the model from the sub-controller to detail.htm. The code i'm using is

data: event type ref to cl_htmlb_event .

event = cl_htmlb_manager=>get_event( request ).

  • get reference to search_controller

main_controller ?= m_parent.

if main_controller is bound.

search_controller ?= main_controller->get_controller(

controller_id = 'Detail' ).

if search_controller is bound and event is bound and

event->id = 'search' .

data: detail_view type ref to if_bsp_page.

detail_view = create_view( view_name = 'detail.bsp' ).

  • Send model class to sub-controller 'Detail'


name = 'model_phbk'

value = <b>main_controller->m_model</b> ).

call_view( detail_view ).


When i do a syntax check, it says that main_controller->m_model does not exist. But i have defined the same as an attribute of that controller. The interesting part is I commented the set_attribute code and debugged this portion. What i found is when i gave main_controller->m_model in the field, it showed me the instance of the model.

So <b>main_controller->m_model</b> is not recognised when I code and check, but is recognised in debug. Why is this happening?

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Sumith,

    why don't you use

    main_controller->get_model( 'the_model_id' )

    to get a reference to the main controller's model.

      are you sure your main controller's attribute <i>m_model</i> is <i>public</i>. If it is not the compiler complains of course whereas in the debugger there is a setting that lets you look into private members of a class. Just a quick thought..
