Using classes in a logic hook

Hi Guys

I am new programming in SuiteCRM and I need to know how I can call classes in a logic hook; for example:

for this example, the file that contains the class “example_class” is in the path: /custom/new_class/example_class.php and my custom logic hook is in the path: /custom/new_logic/my_logic_after_save.php

These are sample data, what interests me is knowing how it is handled

class example_class
    public $variable = "something value";
   public function print_log()


include '../custom/new_class/example_class.php';

class my_logic_after_save_class
   function my_logic_after_save_method(&$bean, $event, $arguments)
         $example = new example_class();

I’m trying to do it this way but it doesn’t work, thanks for your help.


What are you putting in the hook definition file under custom/Extension?

Are you sure your hook is being called?


Thanks for you reply, i’m sure that my hook is being called; the file logic_hook in custom/extension contains:

// Do not store anything in this file that is not part of the array or the hook version.  This file will	
// be automatically rebuilt in the future. 
 $hook_version = 1; 
$hook_array = Array(); 
// position, file, function 
$hook_array['after_save'] = Array(); 
$hook_array['after_save'][] = Array(1, 'after_save', 'custom/new_logic/my_logic_after_save.php','my_logic_after_save_class', 'my_logic_after_save_method'); 

what I need is to know how I invoke class methods within a logic hook, because the way I am doing it does not work

Ok, thanks.

But please be more precise in the description of “is does not work”…

Does it run your hook? Can you log something from inside the hook?

Any errors in php_errors.log?

Does the include find your class file correctly?


Hi I’m sorry for answer something late.

So my logic hook is executed properly, what I have not managed to do is find the class that I call in the include, because when I create the object of this class does not recognize it.


You didn’t answer all my questions…

Basically - if you have a PHP error, you have a message in the PHP log. If you don’t, I don’t see why your code doesn’t work, sorry. It looks correct to me on a first glance.

Ok thanks, I will review my php errors and tell you.
