Getting the filter values from an grid within the Magento admin can be a tricky task and is not very straight forward. In my case I required these values for a custom order export type to build a proper file name. After digging around in the code I found a way.
Recently I’ve finished a project called PHP-Minesweeper. It’s an object-oriented PHP implementation of the game Minesweeper I’ve created to practice test-driven development. It was a success as it’s my first hobby project I actually bothered completing due to the fun with this way of developing.
