Jifty::Action::Record -- An action tied to a record in the database.
To actually use this class, you probably want to inherit from one of Jifty::Action::Record::Create, Jifty::Action::Record::Update, or Jifty::Action::Record::Delete. You may need to override the "record_class" method, if Jifty cannot determine the record class of this action.
Access to the underlying Jifty::Record object for this action is through the
This method can either be overridden to return a string specifying the name of the record class, or the name of the class can be passed to the constructor.
If the action returns true for
report the message returned by the model classes as the resulting message.
For Update actions,
Put the per-field message in
detailed_messages field of action result content.
The default is false.
Construct a new
Jifty::Action::Record (as mentioned in Jifty::Action,
this should only be called by
if provided in the PARAMHASH,
will be used to load the "record"; otherwise,
the parimary keys will be loaded from the action's argument values,
and the "record" loaded from those primary keys.
This also creates built-in validation and autocompletion methods (validate_$fieldname and autocomplete_$fieldname) for action fields that are defined "validate" or "autocomplete". These methods can be overridden in any Action which inherits from this class.
Additionally, if our model class defines canonicalize_, validate_, or autocomplete_ FIELD, generate appropriate an appropriate canonicalizer, validator, or autocompleter that will call that method with the value to be validated, canonicalized, or autocompleted.
validate_FIELD should return a (success boolean,
autocomplete_FIELD should return a the same kind of list as Jifty::Action::_autocomplete_argument
canonicalized_FIELD should return the canonicalized value.
Returns the list of columns objects on the object that the action can update.
This defaults to all of the
containers or the non-
virtual and non-
serial columns of the object.
Returns the list of the "possible_columns"' names.
Usually at the end names are required, however for subclassing column objects are better, or this method in a subclass turns out to be "map to column" - "filter" - "map to name" chain.
Throws an error unless it is overridden; use Jifty::Action::Record::Create, ::Update, or ::Delete
