Gday Experts,

I have created a simple contact module, when the user submits the form, it either says 'mail sent' or 'failed', I wish to display this information in system message/jdoc object <jdoc:include type="message" />

What code would I use to add messages to this area?

Sincerely,
-- Zemond

in a component you just set the message as the second option in the redirect

$this->setRedirect('?option=com_invoice', 'test');

test being the message..

Gday gxp071,

Thanks for the reply, can it be done without performing a redirect?

I'm not sure,

ive tracked the function back and its part of the jController class,  it also has a setMessage() method but it just sets it internally and passes it into a redirect.  the setRedirect method calls the _gobal $mainframe->redirect() which is a JApplication instance.

internally redirect() stacks the message using the enqueueMessage() function.  So in theory if you want to add a message to the stack you could try

_gobal $mainframe;
$mainframe->enqueueMessage('Your Message');

But I've never tried it so no idea if it will do what you want.  Sorry I cant be anymore help,  Ive limited experience of creating modules, and I've never try to do this.  Creating components i've always just used a redirect.

Hope this helps though, good luck

PS. have you tired posting on the developer section of the joomla forum?
