[Discussion] Another way to stop action in controller

Hi guys,

I have tried to found how to stop action in controller. Many people suggested to use beforeExcecuteRoute() but i use another way like this:

if (!$this->authentication->isLoggedin()) {
    /* Redir to login */
    $this->response->redirect( $this->url->get('authentication/login') )->send();
    //return false;

but i dont know about sideEffect of that code. maybe we can discus about that here.. :D

Always return something from controller action, even if it is response object.

return $this->response->redirect( $this->url->get('authentication/login') ); //you don't need send() method here

You can disable output after you trigger HTTP redirect with:

 // Disable the view to avoid rendering

@Cecep your code will be working, but it's very brutal method to stop action.

this code stops the action, because it's forwarding flow to another action

           return  $this->dispatcher->forward(array(
                        "namespace" => "Project\Frontend\Controllers",
                        "controller" => "index",
                        "action" => "index",
