NAME ^

DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager - a lazy cache system for storing Lookup tables.

VERSION ^

Version 0.09

SYNOPSIS ^

 use DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager;
 DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager->FETCH_ID_BY_NAME(  $schema, 'PermissionType', 'name', 'Administrator' );
 DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager->FETCH_NAME_BY_ID(  $schema, 'PermissionType', 'name', 1 );

DESCRIPTION ^

This class is not intended to be used directly. It is the backbone of the DBIx::Class::LookupColumn module.

It stores Lookup tables ( (id, name) ) in a structure and indexes ids and names both ways, so that it is fast to test if a given name is defined by a Lookup table.

This module only supports tables having only one single primary key.

STATIC METHODS ^

FETCH_ID_BY_NAME

 $id = DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager->FETCH_ID_BY_NAME($schema, $lookup_table, $field_name, $name)

Returns the id associated with the value $name in the column $field_name of the Lookup table named $lookup_table.

As a side-effect, it will lazy-load the table $lookup_table in the cache.

Arguments:

$schema

The DBIx::Class::Schema schema instance.

$lookup_table

The name of the Lookup table.

$field_name

The name of the column of the Lookup table that contains the value of the terms/definitions (e.g. 'name').

$name

The value in the column $field_name we want to fetch the primary key for.

Example:

 my $admin_id = DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager->FETCH_ID_BY_NAME( $schema, 'UserType', 'name', 'Administrator' ).

FETCH_NAME_BY_ID

 $name = DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager->FETCH_ID_BY_NAME($schema, $lookup_table, $field_name, $id)

Returns the name associated with the id $id in the column $field_name of the Lookup table named $lookup_table.

As a side-effect, it will lazy-load the table $lookup_table in the cache.

Arguments:

$schema

The DBIx::Class::Schema schema instance.

$lookup_table

The name of the Lookup table.

$field_name

The name of the column of the Lookup table that contains the value of the terms/definitions (e.g. 'name').

$id

The id $id in the column $field_name we want to fetch the value for.

Example:

 my $type_name = DBIx::Class::LookupColumn::Manager->FETCH_NAME_BY_ID( $schema, 'UserType', 'name', 1 ).
