# Apr 18th, 14:16 slackebot App\Controller\ImagesController::loadHelper()```
# Apr 18th, 14:16 this.impetus morning all you helpful cake enthusiasts. I'm trying to install and use a cake thumbnail plugin, https://github.com/mirko-pagliai/cakephp-thumber. In the CookBook's instructions for using a helper (https://book.cakephp.org/3.0/en/views/helpers.html#configuring-helpers) is a snippet, ```$this->loadHelper('helpername')```, inserted after the ```parent::intitialize()``` line of any controller, but I'm getting ```Call to undefined method
# Apr 18th, 12:41 admad @mehov sure can
# Apr 18th, 12:41 neon1024 Yeah, you’re right
# Apr 18th, 12:40 admad in fact it would be a pain, you will need `return null` if you don't want to explicitly calls `render()`
# Apr 18th, 12:39 admad there's isnt much practical value
# Apr 18th, 12:38 neon1024 I should think about the value of it really, rather than the code aesthetic
# Apr 18th, 12:38 neon1024 @admad I’ve had to use `return $this->render()` and `): ?Response` but it does work :slightly_smiling_face:
# Apr 18th, 12:31 mehov Hey guys, quick question: can an Entity, that doesn't directly belong to any of the tables, go to src/Model/Entity?
# Apr 18th, 11:38 admad @neon1024 you can add return type hint to your method as required
# Apr 18th, 10:03 neon1024 Would be a nice thing to have imho
# Apr 18th, 10:02 neon1024 With 4.0.0-alpha1 out, how close are we to getting method return types on controller methods?
# Apr 18th, 09:59 dereuromark protected method with bail early
# Apr 18th, 09:58 dereuromark foreach loop from outside IMO
# Apr 18th, 09:54 birdy247 I thought I could pass an array to isDirty
# Apr 18th, 09:54 birdy247 Is there a consice way to see if one or more of a subset of properties are dirty

# Apr 18th, 09:40 challgren Well migration isn’t working so I guess its been decided
# Apr 18th, 09:39 challgren Im wondering if I should stay on 3.8.0 or switch to 4.0.0
# Apr 18th, 09:39 neon1024 So probably still incoming
# Apr 18th, 09:39 challgren Ohh ok!
# Apr 18th, 09:38 neon1024 @challgren https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp/releases/tag/3.8.0-beta1
# Apr 18th, 09:26 challgren Did 3.8.0 beta go out the window?
# Apr 18th, 09:21 neon1024 I’ll open an issue just in case as I’m in the 4.0.0-alpha1
# Apr 18th, 09:13 neon1024 I presume this is because the transliteration has failed
# Apr 18th, 09:12 slackebot <neon1024>
# Apr 18th, 09:12 neon1024 ..and am getting
# Apr 18th, 09:12 neon1024 I’ve used `'Title with accents' => ['Das Pferd fährt nicht', '/question-with-accents-[\d]+/'],`
# Apr 18th, 09:12 neon1024 I’m writing a test case for a simple method which creates a slug
# Apr 18th, 09:10 Letze Sadly, it seems like Slack is much more active than this IRC >_< nooooo.
# Apr 18th, 08:47 lubos aha, OK. thanks both :slightly_smiling_face:
# Apr 18th, 08:46 admad Then entity might not be the right place as the order in which the two properties are set would affect the prefixing
# Apr 18th, 08:45 lubos I just need to prefix `title` when another property is (bool) true
# Apr 18th, 08:45 admad @dereuromark true, though simple string manipulation is fine IMO
# Apr 18th, 08:44 admad @lubos yes
# Apr 18th, 08:42 dereuromark careful, too much logic in entities can become an antipattern.
# Apr 18th, 08:41 lubos is it same as getters? e.g. `_getTitle`
# Apr 18th, 08:41 lubos @admad cant find any doc how to use them? is there any?
# Apr 18th, 08:39 neon1024 Morning all :wave:
# Apr 18th, 07:12 admad @lubos entity setters are probably what you are looking for
# Apr 18th, 07:08 kanryu dereuromark: I want to use zero or more Tables and create a class that does not depend on Controller context in any place other than Model/Table.
