I have a callback that is running for a specific post request. I am returning a certain JSON response at the end of it.

What if I want to catch errors inside one of the functions that are ran in that callback ? How do I get the Response object, or is there another way of sending a response immediately in case errors are catched ?

  private function someCalculation()
{

  try {

  } catch ($e) {
    //how to send response in case of error inside this function
    return new JsonResponse([
      'data' => null,
      'error' => $error
    ]);
  }
}

public function getTemplate(Request $request)
{


  $this->someCalculation();

  return new JsonResponse([
    'data' => $result,
  ]);

}

How do I send a JSON from inside the someCalculation function in case some errors are found ?

You can do it by checking is $this->someCalculation() is instance of JsonResponse. It is is we return the response, otherwise we set $result to the calculation result.

private function someCalculation() {
  try {
    // Something.
  } catch ($e) {
    return new JsonResponse([
      'data' => NULL,
      'error' => $e->getMessage(),
    ]);
  }
}

public function getTemplate(Request $request) {
  // Alternatively you can return an array with a status code and check on that instead.
  if ($this->someCalculation() instanceof JsonResponse) {
    return $this->someCalculation();
  }
  // If it didn't fail set set $result to the calculation result.
  $result = $this->someCalculation();

  return new JsonResponse([
    'data' => $result,
  ]);
}
  • But I'd rather send the response from inside someCalculation and not from the getTemplate function. Is it possible ? – Yaron Nov 28 at 9:38
  • @Yaron I have updated my answer. – Jdrupal Nov 28 at 9:49
  • Thanks @Jdrupal but still this is not quite what I want. I want the calculation to return another value, but in case of an error then end and return a response to the user.. If I had the response object I would do something like $response->return($myresponse); but I don't think there's a way.. – Yaron Nov 28 at 10:33
