The method $this->getDispatcher() retrieves the event dispatcher. This is helpful when you want to dispatch a new event, or if you want to dispatch an existing event to make resources available that depend on this event.

  • @return: (\Symfony\Component\EventDispatcher\EventDispatcher) Returns the event dispatcher.

Example Usage

private function sendConfirmationEmail()
   # we have to dispatch onTwigLoaded to get the mail-function from the email plugin into the container

   $dispatcher = $this->container->get('dispatcher');
   $dispatcher->dispatch(new OnTwigLoaded(false), 'onTwigLoaded');
      # send mails here
