NAME

DBIx::Class::Helper::Row::ProxyResultSetMethod - Efficiently reuse ResultSet methods from results with fallback

SYNOPSIS

ResultSet:

 package MyApp::Schema::ResultSet::Foo;

 use parent 'DBIx::Class::ResultSet';

 __PACKAGE__->load_components(qw(
    Helper::ResultSet::CorrelateRelationship
 ));

 ...;

 sub with_friend_count {
    shift->search(undef, {
       '+columns' => {
          'friend_count' => $self->correlate('friends')->count_rs->as_query,
       },
    })
 }

Result:

 package MyApp::Schema::Result::Foo;

 use parent 'DBIx::Class::Core';

 __PACKAGE__->load_components(qw( Helper::Row::ProxyResultSetMethod ));

 __PACKAGE__->proxy_resultset_method('friend_count');

or with DBIx::Class::Candy:

 package MyApp::Schema::Result::Foo;

 use DBIx::Class::Candy -components => ['Helper::Row::ProxyResultSetMethod'];

 proxy_resultset_method 'friend_count';

Elsewhere:

 my $row = $foo_rs->first;
 say $row->friend_count . ' friends';

DESCRIPTION

This module makes reusing resultset methods from a result trivially easy. You should be using it.

METHODS

proxy_resultset_method

 __PACKAGE__->proxy_resultset_method( $name => {
    slot             => $slot,
    resultset_method => $rs_method
 });

proxy_resultset_method's first argument is the name of the method to generate and is required. The other two arguments, $slot, and $resultset_method are optional. If unspecified $slot will default to $name and $resultset_method will default to "with_$name". $slot is the column that the data being retrieved is stored as in the ResultSet method being proxied to. $resultset_method is (duh) the ResultSet method being proxied to.

If you did not call the with_* method on your ResultSet, and call the proxy method, it will transparently fallback and do the call and fetch the needed data. E.g.:

 my $foo = $schema->resultset('Foo')->first; ## did not call with_friend_count
 print $foo->friend_count; ## will produce desired result magically

CANDY EXPORTS

If used in conjunction with DBIx::Class::Candy this component will export:

proxy_resultset_method
