Is it possible to write a method that redirects to another page and for that method to also return a variable to the call.

In the attempt below I am attempting to pass the variable $status back to the page being redirected to.

I know this could be accomplished with session variables. But I wondering if there is better solution.

Thanks in advance.


	function doAddStudent($data,$form) {

		// create student data object
		$student = new student();

		// check for matches
		$dupe = DataObject::get('Student',
		//	&& `FirstName`='".Convert::raw2sql($student->FirstName)."'"

//		Debug::show($dupe);
		if (!$dupe) {
				$status='Record Saved';
				$status='Record not saved: Duplicate exists'

If you are using the built in form validation you can do $form->addErrorMessage('Message', 'This is an error', 'bad'); before your redirect back which will pass the error message via the Session class.

Or you can use the Session class directly to save the value, get the value
