__toString()

Use the global set's name as its string representation.

View source

Returns

string

Signature

public string __toString ( )

beforeDelete()

Performs actions before an element is deleted.

View source

Returns

boolean – Whether the element should be deleted

Signature

public boolean beforeDelete ( )

behaviors()

Returns a list of behaviors that this component should behave as.

Child classes may override this method to specify the behaviors they want to behave as.

The return value of this method should be an array of behavior objects or configurations indexed by behavior names. A behavior configuration can be either a string specifying the behavior class or an array of the following structure:

'behaviorName' => [
    'class' => 'BehaviorClass',
    'property1' => 'value1',
    'property2' => 'value2',
]

Note that a behavior class must extend from \craft\elements\Behavior. Behaviors can be attached using a name or anonymously. When a name is used as the array key, using this name, the behavior can later be retrieved using getBehavior() or be detached using detachBehavior(). Anonymous behaviors can not be retrieved or detached.

Behaviors declared in this method will be attached to the component automatically (on demand).

View source

Returns

array – The behavior configurations.

Signature

public array behaviors ( )

displayName()

Returns the display name of this class.

View source

Returns

string – The display name of this class.

Signature

public static string displayName ( )

find()

Creates an craft\elements\db\ElementQueryInterface instance for query purpose.

The returned craft\elements\db\ElementQueryInterface instance can be further customized by calling methods defined in craft\elements\db\ElementQueryInterface before one() or all() is called to return populated \craft\elements\ElementInterface instances. For example,

// Find the entry whose ID is 5
$entry = Entry::find()->id(5)->one();
// Find all assets and order them by their filename:
$assets = Asset::find()
    ->orderBy('filename')
    ->all();

If you want to define custom criteria parameters for your elements, you can do so by overriding this method and returning a custom query class. For example,

class Product extends Element
{
    public static function find()
    {
        // use ProductQuery instead of the default ElementQuery
        return new ProductQuery(get_called_class());
    }
}

You can also set default criteria parameters on the ElementQuery if you don’t have a need for a custom query class. For example,

class Customer extends ActiveRecord
{
    public static function find()
    {
        return parent::find()->limit(50);
    }
}

View source

Returns

craft\elements\db\GlobalSetQuery – The newly created craft\elements\db\GlobalSetQuery instance.

Signature

public static craft\elements\db\GlobalSetQuery find ( )

getCpEditUrl()

Returns the element’s CP edit URL.

View source

Returns

string, null

Signature

public string, null getCpEditUrl ( )

getFieldLayout()

Returns the field layout used by this element.

View source

Returns

craft\models\FieldLayout, null

Signature

public craft\models\FieldLayout, null getFieldLayout ( )

hasContent()

Returns whether elements of this type will be storing any data in the content table (tiles or custom fields).

View source

Returns

boolean – Whether elements of this type will be storing any data in the content table.

Signature

public static boolean hasContent ( )

isLocalized()

Returns whether elements of this type store content on a per-site basis.

If this returns true, the element’s getSupportedSites() method will be responsible for defining which sites its content should be stored in.

View source

Returns

boolean – Whether elements of this type store data on a per-site basis.

Signature

public static boolean isLocalized ( )

refHandle()

Returns the handle that should be used to refer to this element type from reference tags.

View source

Returns

string, null – The reference handle, or null if the elemnet type doesn’t support reference tags

Signature

public static string, null refHandle ( )

rules()

Returns the validation rules for attributes.

Validation rules are used by validate() to check if attribute values are valid. Child classes may override this method to declare different validation rules.

Each rule is an array with the following structure:

[
    ['attribute1', 'attribute2'],
    'validator type',
    'on' => ['scenario1', 'scenario2'],
    //...other parameters...
]

where

  • attribute list: required, specifies the attributes array to be validated, for single attribute you can pass a string;
  • validator type: required, specifies the validator to be used. It can be a built-in validator name, a method name of the model class, an anonymous function, or a validator class name.
  • on: optional, specifies the scenarios array in which the validation rule can be applied. If this option is not set, the rule will apply to all scenarios.
  • additional name-value pairs can be specified to initialize the corresponding validator properties. Please refer to individual validator class API for possible properties.

A validator can be either an object of a class extending \craft\elements\Validator, or a model class method (called inline validator) that has the following signature:

// $params refers to validation parameters given in the rule
function validatorName($attribute, $params)

In the above $attribute refers to the attribute currently being validated while $params contains an array of validator configuration options such as max in case of string validator. The value of the attribute currently being validated can be accessed as $this->$attribute. Note the $ before attribute; this is taking the value of the variable $attribute and using it as the name of the property to access.

Yii also provides a set of \craft\elements\Validator::builtInValidators. Each one has an alias name which can be used when specifying a validation rule.

Below are some examples:

[
    // built-in "required" validator
    [['username', 'password'], 'required'],
    // built-in "string" validator customized with "min" and "max" properties
    ['username', 'string', 'min' => 3, 'max' => 12],
    // built-in "compare" validator that is used in "register" scenario only
    ['password', 'compare', 'compareAttribute' => 'password2', 'on' => 'register'],
    // an inline validator defined via the "authenticate()" method in the model class
    ['password', 'authenticate', 'on' => 'login'],
    // a validator of class "DateRangeValidator"
    ['dateRange', 'DateRangeValidator'],
];

Note, in order to inherit rules defined in the parent class, a child class needs to merge the parent rules with child rules using functions such as array_merge().

View source

Returns

array – Validation rules

Signature

public array rules ( )
