MEOW_Field :: __get()

Returns:

  • Mixed The result of the delegated property access.

An implementation of PHP 5’s __get magic method, to allow field objects to access unknown properties directly. This is the precise mechanism that allows MasterPress’ field API to be so dynamic, since this method delegates the property access to a type delegate object representing the type of the field in MasterPress, i.e. MEOW_Field can adaptively provide an appropriate API based on the field type. This concept harder to explain than to make use of, so please see the example.

This is similar to __call, but is overloaded to prioritise field type property access, which allows for intuitive access to field properties (see example). Furthermore, the base class WOOF_Wrap provides __get handling that allows methods to be accessed like they are properties, essentially allowing the empty brackets to be dropped in a lot of cases.   

Note: this method is not intended to be called directly.
