The snippet i ran across is this:
$this->mOffset = $this->mRequest->getText( 'offset' );
mRequest is a global variable that has been populated with $_Request.
I have done the equivalent but cant understand the part about getText('offset'). i figure the 'offset' part is the key name and the getText() function is getting the value paired to the key. but as their is little documentation on this member function, web and site code, i need some clarification on this. I am not a hard-core PHP dev, so i missed the boat on this one.
Thanx for the help on this.
