[ColdBox-4.2.0]: Missing populateBean()..?

I found the comment below from FrameworkSupertype.populateModel()

@model.hint The name of the model to get and populate or the acutal model object. If you already have an instance of a model, then use the populateBean() method

However, I could not find populateBean() anywhere in ColdBox framework.

When it is implemented, would this be like this?

address = getInstance(“Address”);
address.populateBean(); // Automatically grab data from rc like in populateModel(); and populate the bean

That would be cool. :slight_smile:


That might be a type. Where did you see this
