Event_Dispatcher::getInstance() – Create a new Event_Dispatcher object


require_once 'Event/Dispatcher.php';

object Event_Dispatcher Event_Dispatcher::getInstance ( string $name = '__default' )


Create a new Event_Dispatcher object.

As Event_Dispatcher uses the singleton pattern, you must not use the new operator to create a new instance of Event_Dispatcher, but use getInstance() instead.

If you need more than one instance of Event_Dispatcher, pass different names to the method.


  • string $name = '__default'

Return value
