php variable function

Posted 1 year ago by Snapey

I have this ugly bit of code but can't seem to find the right syntax to simplify it


$request->response is a string corresponding to one of three buttons on a form. The buttons have values of 'approve', 'query' and 'refuse'

in the snippet I am trying to call a function that has the name specified in the request. So, if the user presses 'approve' then $this->approve() is called

I tried $this->$request->response($task); but the syntax is not right.

it works as I have it now but it's annoying me everytime I see that $r variable

and, yes, my form request validates that response can only be one of the three method names.
