Magento Set, Retrieve and Unset Session Variables

To set a Magento session variable:

$myValue = 'Hello World';
Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->setMyValue($myValue);

To Retrieve:

$myValue = '';
$myValue=Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->getMyValue();

To Unset:

Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->unsMyValue();

Note that ‘MyValue’ can be any text you want but ‘set’, ‘get’ and ‘uns’ prefixes are required.

  1. This wasn’t actually that helpful. At this point in the game I have a good handle on magic methods. But how do I mess with a session that’s not the one I’m currently in? I’m working with a swf and that doesn’t count as the same session apparently.

  2. Mage::getSingleton(‘core/session’)->setMyValue(123);

    calling the line above in a class extending Mage_Core_Block_Messages.

    Result:
    __clone method called on non-object in

    Why?!
