How do I retrieve a page from the database and display it?

Ok, I’m probably being really stupid here, but I’m trying to migrate to CakePHP 3.0 and having trouble actually retrieving a page from the database and displaying it.

My pages database contains my site pages with fields id, name, content and a few other things. I want to find the page by name (name is unique).

So, in my Pages controller I have this:

        $pages = TableRegistry::get('Pages');
        $query = $pages->findByName('home');
        $this->set('page', $query->toArray());

Then, in my view, in version 2.x I would have used something like
echo $page['Page']['content'];

but in 3.0 this isn’t working. I looked through the documentation and tutorials, and they seem to be saying that I should have something like

echo $page->content;

but when I try that I get the error : Trying to get property of non-object

If I do a var_dump on $page, I get:

array (size=1)
  0 => 
      protected '_properties' => 
        array (size=4)
          'id' => int 1
          'name' => string 'home' (length=4)
          'title' => string 'Home' (length=4)
          'content' => string ' content...'... (length=681)
      protected '_original' => 
        array (size=0)
      protected '_hidden' => 
        array (size=0)
      protected '_virtual' => 
        array (size=0)
      protected '_className' => null
      protected '_dirty' => 
        array (size=0)
      protected '_new' => boolean false
      protected '_errors' => 
        array (size=0)
      protected '_invalid' => 
        array (size=0)
      protected '_accessible' => 
        array (size=1)
          '*' => boolean true
      protected '_registryAlias' => string 'Pages' (length=5)

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help. Apologies again that this is a very basic question; I’m just totally stuck on it!

as you can see from your var_dump you have converted query result to array, what you need is ->first() instead of ->toArray(), it will return first object from query results and then you can access its properties via ->

Thanks so much! That worked! Just couldn’t get my head around that at all, for some reason!
