Smarty template via string variable?

Hello,

I am trying to work out how to have smarty use a string's contents as the
display-> template..
ie:
$smarty->display($buffer);

obviously $buffer isn't a filename, but a smarty template inside a string
variable. Take this example:

<snip>
<?php
ob_start('ob_callback');
$smarty = new smartyLocal();
$smarty->assign('var1', 'test');
ob_callback($buffer) {
$smarty->display($buffer);
}
?>

<html><head><title>page</title></head>
<body>
{$var1}
</body>
</html>

EOF

What do you guys think? Anyway to do this?

I know, that should have been "function ob_callback($buffer)", I just meant
it as an example.

Looks like a RTFM to me:

Templates from other sources

You can retrieve templates using whatever possible source you can access
with PHP: databases, sockets, LDAP, and so on. You do this by writing
resource plugin functions and registering them with Smarty.

Hi Brian,

You can use eval to parse your template code before outputting.
For example if you have a variable $buffer in php file

$buffer =
'<html><head><title>page</title></head>
<body>
{$var1}
</body>
</html>';

$smarty->assign('var1', 'test');
$smarty->assign('buffer', $buffer);

You can code your smarty template file as follows

{eval var=$buffer assign="parsedBuffer"}
{$parsedBuffer}
