# __construct()

Constructor.

The default implementation does two things:

If this method is overridden in a child class, it is recommended that

  • the last parameter of the constructor is a configuration array, like $config here.
  • call the parent implementation at the end of the constructor.

Arguments

# attribute()

Returns the element attribute this field is for.

View source (opens new window)

Returns

string (opens new window)

# fields()

Returns the list of fields that should be returned by default by toArray() (opens new window) when no specific fields are specified.

A field is a named element in the returned array by toArray() (opens new window).

This method should return an array of field names or field definitions. If the former, the field name will be treated as an object property name whose value will be used as the field value. If the latter, the array key should be the field name while the array value should be the corresponding field definition which can be either an object property name or a PHP callable returning the corresponding field value. The signature of the callable should be:

function ($model, $field) {
    // return field value
}

For example, the following code declares four fields:

  • email: the field name is the same as the property name email;
  • firstName and lastName: the field names are firstName and lastName, and their values are obtained from the first_name and last_name properties;
  • fullName: the field name is fullName. Its value is obtained by concatenating first_name and last_name.
return [
    'email',
    'firstName' => 'first_name',
    'lastName' => 'last_name',
    'fullName' => function () {
        return $this->first_name . ' ' . $this->last_name;
    },
];

In this method, you may also want to return different lists of fields based on some context information. For example, depending on the privilege of the current application user, you may return different sets of visible fields or filter out some fields.

The default implementation of this method returns the public object member variables indexed by themselves.
