NAME

Jifty::Action::Record::Create - Automagic creation action

DESCRIPTION

This class is used as the base class for Jifty::Actions that are merely creating 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 creates.

METHODS

arguments

Set the default value in each of the fields to whatever the default of the column is in the model

take_action

Overrides the virtual take_action method on Jifty::Action to call the appropriate Jifty::Record's create method when the action is run, thus creating a new object in the database.

The id of the new row is returned in the id content of the Jifty::Result for the action. You can use this in conjunction with request mapping in order to give later parts of the request access to the id.

create_record

This method actually performs the call to record->create. It receives as arguments the parameter hash and should return the message for the user, indicating success or failure.

report_success

Sets the "message" in Jifty::Result to default success message, "Created". Override this if you want to report some other more user-friendly result.

possible_columns

Create actions do not provide fields for columns marked as private or protected.

_extra_validator_args

Passes for => 'create' to validators.

_extra_canonicalizer_args

Passes for => 'create' to canonicalizers.

_extra_autocompleter_args

Passes for => 'create' to autocompleters.
