navbar getChild, check if exists


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to change the destinations for the network status links using hooks. I look trough the documentation (http://docs.whmcs.com/Client_Area_Navigation_Menus_Cheatsheet#Changing_where_a_Menu_Item_Points_To)


I can change the link using this:


    $primaryNavbar->getChild('Network Status')       


However, when the client is logged in, Network Status is no longer a top item, but a child of Support, so I should use:


      ->getChild('Network Status')


But if I use one of the 2, the other one gives a blank page. So if I use the first piece of code, I get a blank page when the client logs in (because $primaryNavbar->getChild('Network Status') is invalid). I could catch this of with an if statement to check if the client is logged in. But, if I want to also change the secondary navbar link, I have to use:


      ->getChild('Network Status')


I could also work around this with double if statement (logged in + page is a page where the secondary navbar is shown), but this seems a bit inefficient. Is there a way to check if check if the child exists? Something like:


if ($secondaryNavbar->getChild('Network Status') = true) {
 $secondaryNavbar->getChild('Network Status')       



Or is there a way that the statement is just ignored if the specified child does not exist?
