NAME ^

Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup - A group of Mail::Message::Field::Address objects

INHERITANCE ^

 Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup
   is a User::Identity::Collection::Emails
   is a User::Identity::Collection
   is a User::Identity::Item

SYNOPSIS ^

 my $g = Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->new(name => 'name');

 my $a = Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(...);
 $g->addAddress($a);
 
 my $f = Mail::Message::Field::Addresses->new;
 $f->addGroup($g);

DESCRIPTION ^

An address group collects a set of e-mail addresses (in this case they are Mail::Message::Field::Address objects).

Extends "DESCRIPTION" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

OVERLOADED ^

Extends "OVERLOADED" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

overload: @{}

Inherited, see "OVERLOADED" in User::Identity::Collection

overload: stringification

Returns the string() value.

METHODS ^

Extends "METHODS" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

$obj->string()

Returns the address group as string. When no name is specified, it will only be a comma separated list of addresses. With a name, the groups name will be prepended and a semi-colon appended. When no addresses where included and there is no name, then undef is returned.

Constructors

Extends "Constructors" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

$obj->coerce($object)

Coerce an $object into a Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup. Currently, you can only coerce User::Identity::Collection::Emails (which is the base class for this one) into this one.

Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->new( [NAME], OPTIONS )

Inherited, see "Constructors" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails

Attributes

Extends "Attributes" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

$obj->description()

Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->itemType()

Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Collection

$obj->name( [NEWNAME] )

Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->roles()

Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Collection

Collections

Extends "Collections" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

$obj->add(COLLECTION, ROLE)

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->addCollection(OBJECT | ([TYPE], OPTIONS))

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->collection(NAME)

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->parent( [PARENT] )

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->removeCollection(OBJECT|NAME)

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->type()
Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->type()

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

$obj->user()

Inherited, see "Collections" in User::Identity::Item

Maintaining roles

Extends "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

$obj->addRole(ROLE| ([NAME],OPTIONS) | ARRAY)

Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

$obj->removeRole(ROLE|NAME)

Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

$obj->renameRole( <ROLE|OLDNAME>, NEWNAME )

Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

$obj->sorted()

Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

Searching

Extends "Searching" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

$obj->find(NAME|CODE|undef)

Inherited, see "Searching" in User::Identity::Collection

Addresses

$obj->addAddress(STRING|$address|%options)

Add one e-mail address to the list which is maintained in the group. This is a wrapper around addRole() adding flexibility on how addresses are specified. An $address can be anything which is acceptable for Mail::Message::Field::Address::coerce() or a list of options which will create such an object.

example: of adding an address to an address group

 my @data = (full_name => "Myself", address => 'me@tux.org');
 $group->addAddress(@data);

 my $addr = Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(@data);
 $group->addAddress(@data);

 my $ma = Mail::Address->new(...);
 $group->addAddress($ma);
$obj->addresses()

Returns all addresses defined in this group. The addresses will be ordered alphabetically to make automated testing possible: roles are stored in a hash, so have an unpredictable order by default.

example: getting all addresses from a group

 my @addrs = $group->addresses;
 my @addrs = map { $_->address } $self->roles; #same

Error handling

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Error: $object is not a collection.

The first argument is an object, but not of a class which extends User::Identity::Collection.

Error: Cannot coerce a $type into a Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup
Error: Cannot create a $type to add this to my collection.

Some options are specified to create a $type object, which is native to this collection. However, for some reason this failed.

Error: Cannot load collection module for $type ($class).

Either the specified $type does not exist, or that module named $class returns compilation errors. If the type as specified in the warning is not the name of a package, you specified a nickname which was not defined. Maybe you forgot the 'require' the package which defines the nickname.

Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: already exists
Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: doesn't exist
Error: Creation of a collection via $class failed.

The $class did compile, but it was not possible to create an object of that class using the options you specified.

Error: Don't know what type of collection you want to add.

If you add a collection, it must either by a collection object or a list of options which can be used to create a collection object. In the latter case, the type of collection must be specified.

Warning: No collection $name

The collection with $name does not exist and can not be created.

Error: Wrong type of role for $collection: requires a $expect but got a $type

Each $collection groups sets of roles of one specific type ($expect). You cannot add objects of a different $type.
