could not determine type of argument "section" of the render-method in ViewHelper "Tx_Fluid_ViewHelpers_RenderViewHelper"¶
The information on this page is outdated and no longer applies to TYPO3
>= 10.0 (and was deprecated in earlier versions). Arguments to a
ViewHelper are registered with
registerArgument() and no longer
passed as arguments to the render function. See Changelog
Deprecation: #81213 - Render method arguments on ViewHelpers deprecated
This exception is thrown if the PHPDoc
@param entry in a Fluid ViewHelper
is incorrect or if you are using a PHP optimizer with opcode caching
like the builtin Opcache
and have disabled the storing of PHPDoc blocks. Fluid ViewHelpers needed the
PHPDoc entries to determine the data type (in older TYPO3 versions).
#1242292003: could not determine type of argument "section" of the render-method in ViewHelper "Tx_Fluid_ViewHelpers_RenderViewHelper". Either the methods docComment is invalid or some PHP optimizer strips off comments.
check PHPDoc block, it must start with ** (two stars).
attribute must be mentioned as
@param type $variableName.
If using eAccelerator: compile eAccelerator with option "--with-eaccelerator-doc-comment-inclusion": "If you want eAccelerator to retain doc-comments in internal php structures" (eAccelerator help)
Use another PHP optimizer. I use xCache on Debian Squeeze which seems to work fine.
using the opcode cache of modern PHP versions, you can set opcache.save_comments=1 (and opcache.load_comments=1 in PHP < 7.0).
