    Pass Request to another Controller Link to this post

    Is it possible to pass the whole Request to another Controller from within a Controller action?

    Lets say we have something like this:

    The First Controller:

    class Controller1 extends Page_Controller {
    public static $url_handlers = array(
    '$Action/$ID' => 'doStuff'

    function doStuff($request) {
    if($request->param['Action'] == 'special') {
    // Pass control to my SpecialController
    return $this;

    The Special Controller

    class SpecialController extends Page_Controller {
    public static $url_handlers = array('$ID' => 'display');

    public function display($request) {
    return $this;

    How can I do something like this? I've tried it with

    return new SpecialController();


    $controller = new SpecialController();
    return $controller->handleRequest($request);

    But all I get is:

    [User Warning] popCurrent called on ModelAsController controller, but it wasn't at the top of the stack

    Any solutions for this?
