I have two functions which I want to use in both a controller (which is called in template), and a DataModule.

It's only two functions, instead of duplicating the code, whats/where is the best place to put these two functions?

Page.php Page_Controller

Not sure what DataModule is but if it extends the Page class then it should be accessible in your other two classes.

Thanks for the replies.
I don't feel like the functions belong in the main Page controller - as other controllers don't need these functions.

Maybe I could create a separate class with static functions (or normal).
