in t3lib_div there should be a helper function for TYPOScript values.

The patch merges the following function into the core

  • Helper function: slices a key from TYPOScript setup through different levels in an easy way
  • Example call: t3lib_div::getTSValue('key1.key2.key3', $this->conf); => return value of key1.key2.key3
  • @param string The path to find
  • @param array a TYPOScript setup array
  • @return mixed array if given path is TO node, string if given path is TO leave, empty string if the given path is empty, false if the given path is not set

  • */
    public function getTSValue($path, $conf) {
    $subkeys = explode('.',$path);
    $arr = $conf;
    $max = count($subkeys);
    for($i = 0; $i < $max; $i++) {
    $key = $subkeys[$i];
    if ($i < ($max - 1)) {
    $key .= '.';
if (array_key_exists($key, $arr)) {
$arr = $arr[$key];
} else {
if (array_key_exists($key.'.', $arr)) {
$arr = $arr[$key.'.'];
} else {
return false;
return $arr;

don't blow up t3lib_div any further. it's a god class already. we need to think about breaking it up instead. I agree with the helper thing in general though, but there should be a better place to add this.

#3 Updated by Ernesto Baschny about 9 years ago

This won't make it in 4.5.0 anymore, but have you done some thought on where we could add this function? We could have this starting in 4.6 then. Thanks for your help and contribution!

As this report is very old, is the handling in newer TYPO3 CMS Versions (like 6.0/6.1) more like you expect it?
