AxKit::App::TABOO::Data::Plurals::Stories
Data objects to handle multiple Stories in TABOO

AxKit::App::TABOO::Data::Plurals::Stories - Data objects to handle multiple Stories in TABOO


NAME

AxKit::App::TABOO::Data::Plurals::Stories - Data objects to handle multiple Stories in TABOO


DESCRIPTION

Often, you want to retrieve many different stories from the data store, for example all belonging to a certain category or a certain section. This is a typical situation where this class shoule be used.

Methods

new(@dbconnectargs)
The constructor. Nothing special.

load(what => fields, limit => {key => value, [...]}, orderby => fields, entries => number)
This load method can be used to retrieve a number of entries from a data store. It uses named parameters, the first what is used to determine which fields to retrieve. It is a string consisting of a commaseparated list of fields, as specified in the data store. The limit argument is to be used to determine which records to retrieve, these will be combined by logical AND. You may also supply a orderby argument, which is an expression used to determine the order of entries returned. Usually, it would be a simple string with the field name to use, e.g. 'timestamp', but you might want to append the keyword ``DESC'' to it for descending order. Finally, you may supply a entries argument, which is the maximum number of entries to retrieve.

It will retrieve the data, and then call populate() for each of the records retrieved to ensure that the plural data objects actually consists of an array of the AxKit::App::TABOO::Data::Story manpages. But it calls the internal _load()-method to do the hard work (and that's in the parent class).

If there is no data that corresponds to the given arguments, this method will return undef.

addcatinfo
adduserinfo
These two methods are implemented in a plurals context, and can be called on a plurals object just like a singular object. Each entry will have their data structure extended with user and category information.

exists(key => value, [...])
This checks if there exists a story with the limits specified as a hash, by the template of the limit argument of the load method.

It will return the number of such stories.


BUGS/TODO

Not anything particular at the moment...
