in thread CGI::Application design strategy

If you want to switch run modes in mid-stream your current run mode just has to call the runmode that you want.

There is never any need for a normal CGI::Application based app to use redirect headers to access another runmode unless the resource has actually moved (e.g. has a new URL)

Here is larsen's example modified updated to remove the redirect.

# Does nothing except printing the form. # Using sessions you can pass to it an error_message, # for example. # sub login + { my $self = shift; + my $tmpl = $self->load_tmpl( 'login' ); + return $tmpl->output(); + } sub login_update + { my $self = shift; + my $q = $self->query; # Fetch username and password from the form # if ( PASSWORD CORRECT ) { return $self->first_panel; } else { # It could store some useful info in a session, # for example the error message. # return $self->login; } # You have a problem if this return ever actually executed #return; }

    And can you tell me what happens when users hit reload on their browsers? If you redirect users, they will not be able to reissue a command by reloading the login_update run mode. Nice, isn't it? :)

    Ciao, Valerio

      I implement logins using returns and if you have properly factored your code so each run-mode doesn't do more than it absolutely needs to, there's no problem. Remember - until the user has successfully logged in, the user can only see one page - the login screen. So what if they hit reload?

      We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

      Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.
