How to get current application

edited April 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
How can you get the current application name via a plugin? I can't seem to find it anywhere directly via the $Sender argument

    This is just an untested idea: have you tried looking into the $Sender Array using print_r($Sender)?
  • yeah, went over it several times. The only way to get the ApplicationName is via a custom index object which is set by the application itself, so it's non-deterministic

    Sender->Application, Sender->ApplicationFolder
    Also check this discussion
  • null ... both null ... even in Base_Render_Before it is still, null.
    And in that discussion you mention nothing regarding to how to see the current application name/folder :)

    Not 'ApplicationName', but 'Application'.
    class Gdn_Controller extends Gdn_Pluggable {

    * The name of the application that this controller can be found in
    * (ie. Vanilla, Garden, etc).
    * @var string
    public $Application;

    * The name of the application folder that this controller can be found in
    * (ie. vanilla, dashboard, etc).
    * @var string
    public $ApplicationFolder;
