Lesson 21 - Practicing PHP exceptions - Finishing the contact form

In the previous lesson, Custom exceptions in PHP, propagation and the finally block, we finished going over the theoretical aspects of exceptions and started working on a contact form using exceptions, which we're going to finish today.

Contact form

The contact form itself will be represented by a class with the same name. Aside from the render() and send() methods, it will consist mostly of private methods. The aforementioned methods include sendEmail(), which will handle email sending. Then, we'll also need a redirect() method, which will redirect a user once an email is successfully sent (easy way of preventing "doubleposts"). Last of all, we'll need both the setNotice() and getNotice() methods, which will allow us to transport the validation notice that the user receives, i.e. the validation error/confirmation message.

Enough dilly dallying! Here's what the class looks like:
