Get URL parameters with Tools::getValue() method

Recommended Posts



I need to get URL parameter for an XML file, but Tools::getValue() removes backslash from URL ("D:\update_preturi\ral.xml" becomes "D:update_preturiral.xml"). The solution is to use $_POST or $_GET, but if i use them I don't pass the prestashop validation. What is the solution?


Thank you!

Actually Tools::getValue() isn't meant for any type of data in particular.

The docstring reads:

// Get a value from $_POST / $_GET
// if unavailable, take a default value

getValue() is being overly cautious, essential breaking perfectly valid (and properly encoded) url parameters and modifies them.

If you need slashes in your URL parameters just use:

$myVariable = ( isset($_GET['myVar']) ? $_GET['myVar'] : false);

It's a bit more work, but it solves your problem.
