Use shortcut functions to reduce typing

Created 7 years ago by qiangTutorials8 comments – viewed 48,625 times – ( +58 ) – version 1.1

For example, to access the current user, we need to use Yii::app()->user; to access application parameters, we need Yii::app()->params['name']; and so on. While editors like textmate can help alleviate the problem of these lengthy typings, it is worthwhile to define global shortcut functions to some commonly used method calls. They will make the application code look cleaner.
