NAME

WWW::Challonge::Participant - A class representing a single participant within a Challonge tournament.

VERSION

Version 1.01

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

Takes a hashref representing the participant, the API key and the REST client and turns it into an object. This is mostly used by the module itself, to create a new participant within a tournament see "new_participant" in WWW::Challonge::Tournament.

        my $p = WWW::Challonge::Participant->new($participant, $key, $client);

update

Updates specific attributes of a participant. For a full list, see "new_participant" in WWW::Challonge::Tournament. Unlike that method, however, all arguments are optional.

        $p->update({
                name => "test2",
                seed => 1
        });

check_in

Checks in the participant to the tournament.

        $p->check_in;

destroy

If the tournament has not started, deletes the associated participant. If the tournament has started, the participant is marked inactive and their matches are automatically forfeited.

        $p->destroy;

        # $p still contains the participant, but any future operations will fail:
        $p->update({ name => "test2" }); # ERROR!

randomize

Randomises the seeds among participants. Only applicable before a tournament has started. Affects all participants in the tournament.

        $p->randomize;

attributes

Gets all the attributes of the participant in hashref and returns it. Contains the following fields.

        my $attr = $p->attributes;
        print $attr->{name}, "\n";

__is_kill

Returns an error explaining that the current tournament has been destroyed and returns undef, used so a function doesn't attempt to operate on a tournament that has been successfully destroyed.

__args_are_valid

Checks if the passed arguments and values are valid for creating or updating a tournament.
