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,
or Jifty::Action::Record::Delete and override the
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.
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 fields on the object that the action can update. This defaults to all of the fields of the object.
Throws an error unless it is overridden; use Jifty::Action::Record::Create, ::Update, or ::Delete
