How does one get the current bID from within the block controller?

Permalink
I'm working on a very simple block. I have 3 fields to fill in on the Add and edit views. This data is needed in my block controller and not for fields to display on the view. How can I programmatically get this data for the current block instance? Does anyone know of a way to get the current block instance's bID from within the block controller?

I'm pretty sure you can just get the current bID in the controller using:

$this->bID

The actual fields against your block should be accessible directly after the block has been initialised:

$this->yourFieldName

Thanks very much for your prompt reply. Late last night, I found in someone else's work, $this->record->bID and so forth. Is this the same thing or is this method deprecated?
