BackendController is the master controller for all back-end pages. All requests that are prefixed with the backend URI pattern are sent here, then the next URI segments are analyzed and the request is routed to the relevant back-end controller.

For example, a request with the URL /backend/acme/blog/posts will look for the Posts controller inside the Acme.Blog plugin.

public getClassMethodAsReflector()

public implementClassWith()

public implementClassWith($extensionName): void

implementClassWith will implement an extension using non-interference and should be used with the static extend() method.

public isClassExtendedWith()

public isClassExtendedWith(string $name): boolean 

isClassExtendedWith checks if extendable class is extended with a behavior object

public isClassInstanceOf()

public isClassInstanceOf($interface): bool 

isClassInstanceOf checks if the class implements the supplied interface methods.

propertyExists checks if a property exists, extension equivalent of property_exists()

public run()

public run(string $url = null): string 

run finds and serves the requested backend controller If the controller cannot be found, returns the Cms page with the URL /404. If the /404 page doesn't exist, returns the system 404 page.
