I am trying to accomplish something which I think is getting beyond my current PHP skills!
I have working code in a Magento .phtml template file that calls an external PHP class e.g.
$ExternalLibPath=Mage::getModuleDir('', 'My_Module') . DS . 'lib' . DS .'class.authentication.php'; require_once ($ExternalLibPath); $myauth = new Authentication(); $credentials = $myauth->get("account_credentials"); echo "Connecting as " . $credentials->user_name ;
(In the .phtml file the classes are called from an include). I’m trying to move the code from the frontend template files to a Magento module/extension with a class triggered on an event. My module works fine up until the external classes are accessed where trying to access *$credentials->user_name* causes an Undefined property: stdClass: error.
I don’t understand why the code works in a .phtml template and not in the module, or what I am doing wrong!
Any help would be appreciated.
