Net::LDAP::Control::VLVprovides an interface for the creation and manipulation of objects that represent the Virtual List View as described by draft-ietf-ldapext-ldapv3-vlv-03.txt.
When using a Virtual List View control in a search, it must be accompanied by a sort control. See Net::LDAP::Control::Sort
In addition to the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control the following are provided.
Set the number of entries the server should return from the list after the target entry.
Set the assertion value user to locate the target entry. This value should be a legal value to compare with the first attribute in the sort control that is passed with the VLV control. The target entry is the first entry in the list which is greater than or equal the assert value.
Set the number of entries the server should return from the list before the target entry.
Set the number of entries in the list. On the first search this value should be set to zero. On subsequent searches it should be set to the length of the list, as returned by the server in the VLVResponse control.
Set the context identifier. On the first search this value should be set to zero. On subsequent searches it should be set to the context value returned by the server in the VLVResponse control.
Set the offset of the target entry.
As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is also avaliable as a method on the object which will return the current value for the attribute if called without an argument, and set a new value for the attribute if called with an argument.
assertattributes are mutually exclusive. Setting one or the other will cause previous values set by the other to be forgotten. The
contentattribute is also associated with the
offsetattribute, so setting
assertwill cause any
contentvalue to be forgotten.
Set the target entry to the end of the list. This method will change the
afterattributes so that the target entry is the last in the page.
- response VLV_RESPONSE
Set the attributes in the control as per VLV_RESPONSE. VLV_RESPONSE should be a control of type Net::LDAP::Control::VLVResponse returned from the server.
responsewill populate the
contentattibutes of the control with the values from VLV_RESPONSE. Because this sets the
offsetattribute, any previous setting of the
assertattribute will be forgotten.
- scroll NUM
Move the target entry by NUM entries. A positive NUM will move the target entry towards the end of the list and a negative NUM will move the target entry towards the start of the list. Returns the index of the new target entry, or
undefif the current target is identified by an assertion.
scrollmay change the
afterattributes if the scroll value would cause the page to go off either end of the list. But the page size will be maintained.
- scroll_page NUM
Scroll by NUM pages. This method simple calculates the current page size and calls
NUM * $page_size
Set the target entry to the start of the list. This method will change the
afterattributes to the the target entry is the first entry in the page.
