Sessions

Version: 5.5

To work with the session, the standard symfony mechanism is used:

https://symfony.com/doc/current/session.html

Since the session service is private, you cannot get it from the container; you need to use a special service locator.

$session = \XCart\Container::getServiceLocator()->getSession()

In symfony-compatible code (services, event handlers, etc.), you need to use the session handling method described in the symfony documentation.

For backward compatibility in X-Cart 5.5, you can use the class \XLite\Core\Session.

To access session data, the magic methods set and get are used; that is, you can work with session fields as with fields of an object returned by calling \XLite\Core\Session::getInstance()

$session = \XLite\Core\Session::getInstance();

$session->some_filed = 'some_value';
$someVar = $session->some_other_field;
