First, let me thank you for your great Framework.

Easy to use and really great to code mini-sites.

I'm starting using PHP and i was wondering if it's possible to use the urlFor in a route middleware. I can't figure it out.

Sorry for the beginner's question and excuse my rusty english.

Thx for your help.

    Yes you can. My guess is you are not including the "use($app)" statement as part of the middleware.

    $routeMiddleware = function() use ($app) {
       var_dump($app->urlFor('testingurlfor', array('id' => 'setinroutemiddleware')));
    $app->get('/testingurlfor/:id', $routeMiddleware, function ($id) {
       echo "Got Id=".$id;

    You can also access the router via the route itself so you could do something like this as well for the middleware:

    $routeMiddleware = function($req, $res, $route) {
       var_dump($route->getRouter()->urlFor('testingurlfor', array('id' => 'setinroutemiddleware')));

    Both give you:

    string(35) "/testingurlfor/setinroutemiddleware"
    Got Id=id
