Jifty::Action::Record::Update - Automagic update action
This class is used as the base class for Jifty::Actions that are merely updating Jifty::Record objects.
To use it,
subclass it and override the
record_class method to return the name of the Jifty::Record subclass that this action should update.
We only need to validate arguments that got submitted -- thus, a mandatory argument that isn't submitted isn't invalid, as it's not going to change the record. This is opposed to the behavior inherited from Jifty::Action, where mandatory arguments must be present for the action to run.
However, constructor arguments are still required.
Overrides the virtual
take_action method on Jifty::Action to call the appropriate
set_ methods when the action is run,
thus updating the object in the database.
Sets the "message" in Jifty::Result to default success message, "Updated". Override this if you want to report some other more user-friendly result.
Update actions do not provide fields for columns marked as
for => 'update' to validators.
for => 'update' to canonicalizers.
for => 'update' to autocompleters.
