This method aids in the eager-loading of elements when performing an element query. The returned array should contain the following keys:

  • elementType – the fully qualified class name of the element type that should be eager-loaded
  • map – an array of element ID mappings, where each element is a sub-array with source and target keys.
  • criteria (optional) – Any criteria parameters that should be applied to the element query when fetching the eager-loaded elements.
use craft\db\Query;
use craft\helpers\ArrayHelper;

public static function eagerLoadingMap(array $sourceElements, string $handle)
{
    switch ($handle) {
        case 'author':
            $bookIds = ArrayHelper::getColumn($sourceElements, 'id');
            $map = (new Query)
                ->select(['source' => 'id', 'target' => 'authorId'])
                ->from('{{%books}}')
                ->where(['id' => $bookIds)
                ->all();
            return [
                'elementType' => \my\plugin\Author::class,
                'map' => $map,
            ];
        case 'bookClubs':
            $bookIds = ArrayHelper::getColumn($sourceElements, 'id');
            $map = (new Query)
                ->select(['source' => 'bookId', 'target' => 'clubId'])
                ->from('{{%bookclub_books}}')
                ->where(['bookId' => $bookIds)
                ->all();
            return [
                'elementType' => \my\plugin\BookClub::class,
                'map' => $map,
            ];
        default:
            return parent::eagerLoadMap($sourceElements, $handle);
    }
}

# extraFields()

Returns the list of fields that can be expanded further and returned by toArray() (opens new window).

This method is similar to fields() (opens new window) except that the list of fields returned by this method are not returned by default by toArray() (opens new window). Only when field names to be expanded are explicitly specified when calling toArray() (opens new window), will their values be exported.

The default implementation returns an empty array.

You may override this method to return a list of expandable fields based on some context information (e.g. the current application user).

View source (opens new window)

Returns

array (opens new window) – The list of expandable field names or field definitions. Please refer to fields() (opens new window) on the format of the return value.

# 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(): ElementQueryInterface
    {
        // 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(): ElementQueryInterface
    {
        return parent::find()->limit(50);
    }
}

# tableAttributeHtml()

Returns the HTML that should be shown for a given attribute in Table View.

This method can be used to completely customize what actually shows up within the table’s body for a given attribute, rather than simply showing the attribute’s raw value.

For example, if your elements have an email attribute that you want to wrap in a mailto: link, your getTableAttributesHtml() method could do this:

switch ($attribute) {
    case 'email':
        return $this->email ? Html::mailto(Html::encode($this->email)) : '';
    // ...
}
return parent::tableAttributeHtml($attribute);

WARNING

All untrusted text should be passed through craft\helpers\Html::encode() (opens new window) to prevent XSS attacks.

By default the following will be returned:

  • If the attribute name is link or uri, it will be linked to the front-end URL.
  • If the attribute is a custom field handle, it will pass the responsibility off to the field type.
  • If the attribute value is a DateTime (opens new window) object, the date will be formatted with a localized date format.
  • For anything else, it will output the attribute value as a string.

View source (opens new window)

string (opens new window) – The HTML that should be shown for a given attribute in Table View.
