Jifty::Collection - Collection of Jifty::Record objects
package Foo::Model::BarCollection use base qw/Jifty::Collection/;
Alternatively, an 'anonymous' collection can be made by creating a new
Jifty::Collection object, and calling
record_class('Application::Model::Foo') or similar on it.
In addition, each Jifty::Collection includes a Data::Page object to help with calculations related to paged data. You should not call the
rows_per_page methods from Jifty::DBI::Collection on a Jifty::Collection. Instead, if you'd like to use paging, you should use the
set_page_info method to set the number of records per page and first record on the current page, and you should use the Data::Page object returned by the
pager method to get information related to paging.
Returns a Data::Page object associated with this collection. This object defaults to 10 entries per page. You should use only use Data::Page methods on this object to get information about paging, not to set it; use
set_page_info to set paging information.
If your results from the query is guaranteed to be readable by current_user, you can create the collection with
results_are_readable = 1>. This is cause check_read_rights to bypass normal current_user_can checks.
Defaults to ordering by the
Overrides Jifty::DBI::Collection's new_item to pass in the current user.
