defined checks if a variable is defined in the current context. This is very useful if you use the strict_variables option:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
{# defined works with variable names #}
{% if foo is defined %}
    ...
{% endif %}

{# and attributes on variables names #}
{% if foo.bar is defined %}
    ...
{% endif %}

{% if foo['bar'] is defined %}
    ...
{% endif %}

When using the defined test on an expression that uses variables in some method calls, be sure that they are all defined first:

1
2
3
{% if var is defined and foo.method(var) is defined %}
    ...
{% endif %}
