Access the non-direct View Helper methods in Zend Framework

Something that was temporarily puzzling me so I thought I would post about it. As in most examples to access the direct() method of a View Helper, you simply call the class name on the View Object:


But if you want to access any of the methods other than direct() you’ve got to get the Helper first, as unlike most Action Helpers they don’t implement a fluent interface because they return bits of the view instead (usually HTML)
