Set package tool url with parameter

Permalink
Hi everyone
I've been looking around for an answer (maybe wrong keywords...)for a while.....
Problem:
Package Development/Block-Controller
Pass parameters to a tool file.
the tool-script 'check_url' is working, so please, dont tell me about....
public function add(){
        $this->set_package_tool('check_url');
    }
    // which calls
       private function set_package_tool($tool_name)
    {
        $tool_helper = Loader::helper('concrete/urls');
        $this->set($tool_name, $tool_helper->getToolsURL($tool_name, $this->getPkgHandle()));
    }

I'd like tho pass the package handle, which is a getter in the block-controller
public function getPkgHandle() {
        return BlockType::getByHandle($this->btHandle)->getPackageHandle();
    }

My best approach was...
// In th add()/edit() method    
    $this->set('pkgHandle',$this->getPkgHandle());
    // In the check_url.php I called it like in a view or so
    echo $pkgHandle;
but nope!
Please Help! ;-)

Another approach which isn't really beautifull nor MVC-style but it works; Pass the param as GET
$this->set($tool_name, $tool_helper->getToolsURL($tool_name . '?test=xxx', $this->getPkgHandle()));

But isn't there a clean way to resolve this ???

Solution:
1. A getter in the controller
public function getPkgHandle() {
    return $this->pkgHandle;
}


2. in the tools file
$bc = new MyBlockController();
$pkg = $bc->getPkgHandle();


This is definitely a solo-thread, but if ev. someone is interested in this.....

I found a post from Jordan Lev(http://www.concrete5.org/profile/-/view/9756/) this morning.
For me that's the best (and only) answer!
