included code inside class, code needed outside

In Router, in a method, in an included file is the controller code. In the model and in the view, I need access to the Controller's properties and methods. In Router, in an other method, I want to return a controller object to the model and the view. What now???

FYI

class ModelClass {
	private = $parent;
	
	...
	public function ModelClass($_parent) {
		$this->parent = $_parent;
		
		echo $this->parent->hello();
	}
	
	...
}
 
 
class ControllerClass{
 
	...
	
	public function ControllerClass() {
		$page = new ModelClass($this);
		return $page;
	}	
	
	public function hello() {
		return "Hello";
	}
	
	...
}

I'm not really sure I understand your question, but from looking at the code there is a syntax error in the first class that might stop it from working as you want. Where you have

class ModelClass {
        private = $parent;


change it to

class ModelClass {
        private $parent;

I'm with Brian - I'm not really sure I understand your question either and if you want to rephrase it maybe we can help better.

Here is a simplified teaching example of how to use public and private properties and methods.  You can install it and run it to see how it works.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Best, ~Ray

I'm mystified.  Can you please tell us a little more about the question and why you accepted that answer?  Thanks, ~Ray

I didn't want to delete the question and I thought the answer was probably right.
