Loader::helper('concrete/interface');

Permalink
In older blocks we could use the interface helper, like the Add Image button in the old slideshow block did.

$ah = Loader::helper('concrete/interface');
$ah->button_js(t('Add Image'), 'SlideshowBlock.chooseImg()', 'left')


This doesn't work anymore in 5.7. You get an error with the Loader::helper('concrete/interface') it says "Class helper/concrete/interface does not exist". Then with just the button_js line the form does not load at all.

Is that interface helper gone in 5.7 or what needs to be done to make it work?

thanks

I believe what you are looking for now is:

$ah = Loader::helper('concrete/ui');

Or if you want to avoid calls to the [now deprecated] Loader class...

$ah = Core::make('helper/concrete/ui');

That said, the Loader class is still used in various places throughout the core, so I guess there's no big rush to adopt the new approach, but it should make your code a bit more future-proof.
