Dispatching is the process of taking the request object, extracting the module name, controller name, action name, and optional parameters contained in it, and then instantiating a controller and calling an action of that controller.

<?php

$di = new \Phalcon\Di();

$dispatcher = new \Phalcon\Mvc\Dispatcher();

  $dispatcher->setDI($di);

$dispatcher->setControllerName('posts');
$dispatcher->setActionName('index');
$dispatcher->setParams(array());

$controller = $dispatcher->dispatch();

Constants

integer EXCEPTION_NO_DI

integer EXCEPTION_CYCLIC_ROUTING

integer EXCEPTION_HANDLER_NOT_FOUND

integer EXCEPTION_INVALID_HANDLER

integer EXCEPTION_INVALID_PARAMS

integer EXCEPTION_ACTION_NOT_FOUND
