Retrieve a context by name without initializing it.

Within a request, contexts retrieved using this function will cache the context data into the modX::$contexts array to avoid loading the same context multiple times.

If you merely want to check the current context, you can return the context key:



API Doc: http://api.modx.com/revolution/2.2/db_core_model_modx_modx.class.html#%5CmodX::getContext()

&$modContext getContext (string $contextKey)


Get the 'sports' Context.

$ctx = $modx->getContext('sports');
