Hi - I hope it's okay to post this here, I know it's not about Catalyst 'core'.
I'm using CatalystX::I18N::* in order to be able to internationalise my site. I have that working nicely, and my site text is coming from $c->maketext(). However, I've been trying to access these codes from my database model (in order to generate, e.g., success or failure messages when checking input before creating / updating) and am struggling. According to the CatalystX::I18N docs, CatalystX::I18N::Maketext is a 'Helpful wrapper around Locale::Maketext. Can also be used outside of Catalyst'. I have MyApp::Maketext setup as directed: package MyApp::Maketext; use strict; use warnings; use parent qw(CatalystX::I18N::Maketext); 1; I have a little test script running, the setup for which is this: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use FindBin qw( $Bin ); use lib "$Bin/../lib"; use TopTable::Maketext; use Path::Class::Dir; my $dir = Path::Class::Dir->new( "$Bin/..", "root", "locale" ); TopTable::Maketext->load_lexicon( locales => ["en_GB"], # Required directories => [$dir], # Required gettext_style => 0, # Optional, Default 1 ); I am then trying two different ways to get a handle to the maketext() method: my $lang = TopTable::Maketext->get_handle; printf "%s\n", $lang->maketext( "menu.title.news" ); Gives the following result: Can't call method "maketext" on an undefined value at bin\maketext-demo.pl line 23. If I swap ->get_handle to ->new: my $lang = TopTable::Maketext->new; printf "%s\n", $lang->maketext( "menu.title.news" ); I get the following: maketext doesn't know how to say: menu.title.news as needed at bin\maketext-demo.pl line 23. I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to try next! Thank you so much in advance for any pointers anyone can give. Chris
