Language Helper

The Language Helper file contains functions that assist in working with language files. This helper is loaded using the following code:


Available Functions

lang($line[, $for = ''[, $attributes = array()]])

Parameter Type Description
$line String Language line key
$for String HTML “for” attribute (ID of the element we’re creating a label for)
$attributes Array Any additional HTML attributes
Returns String HTML-formatted language line label

This function returns a line of text from a loaded language file with simplified syntax that may be more desirable for view files than Lang::line().


echo lang('language_key', 'form_item_id', array('class' => 'myClass'));
// Outputs: <label for="form_item_id" class="myClass">Language line</label>
