NAME ^

DBIx::Class::Helper::ResultSet::Shortcut - Shortcuts to common searches (->order_by, etc)

VERSION ^

version 2.018004

SYNOPSIS ^

 package MyApp::Schema::ResultSet::Foo;

 __PACKAGE__->load_components(qw{Helper::ResultSet::Shortcut});

 ...

 1;

And then elsewhere:

 # let's say you grab a resultset from somewhere else
 my $foo_rs = get_common_rs()
 # but I'd like it sorted!
   ->order_by({ -desc => 'power_level' })
 # and without those other dumb columns
   ->columns([qw/cromulence_ratio has_jimmies_rustled/])
 # but get rid of those duplicates
   ->distinct
 # and put those straight into hashrefs, please
   ->hri
 # but only give me the first 3
   ->rows(3);

DESCRIPTION ^

This helper provides convenience methods for resultset modifications.

See "NOTE" in DBIx::Class::Helper::ResultSet for a nice way to apply it to your entire schema.

METHODS ^

distinct

 $foo_rs->distinct

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { distinct => 1 });

group_by

 $foo_rs->group_by([ qw/ some column names /])

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { group_by => [ qw/ some column names /] });

order_by

 $foo_rs->order_by({ -desc => 'col1' });

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { order_by => { -desc => 'col1' } });

You can also specify the order as a "magic string", e.g.:

 $foo_rs->order_by('!col1')       # ->order_by({ -desc => 'col1' })
 $foo_rs->order_by('col1,col2')   # ->order_by([qw(col1 col2)])
 $foo_rs->order_by('col1,!col2')  # ->order_by([{ -asc => 'col1' }, { -desc => 'col2' }])
 $foo_rs->order_by(qw(col1 col2)) # ->order_by([qw(col1 col2)])

Can mix it all up as well:

 $foo_rs->order_by(qw(col1 col2 col3), 'col4,!col5')

hri

 $foo_rs->hri;

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, {
    result_class => 'DBIx::Class::ResultClass::HashRefInflator'
 });

rows

 $foo_rs->rows(10);

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { rows => 10 })

limit

This is an alias for rows.

  $foo_rs->limit(10);

  # equivalent to...
  $foo_rs->rows(10);

has_rows

A lighter way to check the resultset contains any data rather than calling $rs->count.

columns

 $foo_rs->columns([qw/ some column names /]);

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { columns => [qw/ some column names /] });

add_columns

 $foo_rs->add_columns([qw/ some column names /]);

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { '+columns' => [qw/ some column names /] });

prefetch

 $foo_rs->prefetch('bar');

 # equivalent to...
 $foo_rs->search(undef, { prefetch => 'bar' });

SEE ALSO ^

This component is actually a number of other components put together. It will get more components added to it over time. If you are worried about all the extra methods you won't use or something, using the individual shortcuts is a simple solution. All the documentation will remain here, but the individual components are:
