Detailed Description

This class represents a Cutelyst Action.

It encapsulates a Controller method that was defined with C_ATTR macro, it's usually automatically created by Cutelyst::Controller using it's introspections information, this class allows Cutelyst to call a Controller method.

You can access the object for the currently dispatched action via c->action(). See the Cutelyst::Dispatcher for more information on how actions are dispatched.

Definition at line 49 of file action.h.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Cutelyst::Action::Action ( QObject *  parent = nullptr)

Constructs a Action object with the given parent.

Member Function Documentation

QString Cutelyst::Action::attribute ( const QString &  name,
const QString &  defaultValue = QString() 
) const

Returns the value attribute by it's name, if not found dafault value is returned.

Attributes can be defined using the C_ATTR macro on Controller's method declaration.

QMap<QString, QString> Cutelyst::Action::attributes ( ) const

Returns the attributes that are set for this action, like Local, Path, Private and so on. This determines how the action is dispatched to.

QString Cutelyst::Action::className ( ) const

Returns the name of the component where this action is defined

Controller* Cutelyst::Action::controller ( ) const

Returns the controller where this action is defined

bool Cutelyst::Action::dispatch ( Context c)

Dispatch this action against a context

Definition at line 96 of file action.h.

References Cutelyst::Context::execute().

virtual bool Cutelyst::Action::doExecute ( Context c)

Execute this action against

Reimplemented from Cutelyst::Component.

Reimplemented in Cutelyst::RenderView, Cutelyst::ActionChain, and Cutelyst::ActionREST.

virtual bool Cutelyst::Action::match ( int  numberOfArgs) const

Check Args attribute, and makes sure number of args matches the setting. Always returns true if Args is omitted.

virtual bool Cutelyst::Action::matchCaptures ( int  numberOfCaptures) const

Can be implemented by action class and action role authors. If the method exists, then it will be called with the request context and an array reference of the captures for this action.

Returning true from this method causes the chain match to continue, returning false makes the chain not match (and alternate, less preferred chains will be attempted).
virtual Modifiers Cutelyst::Action::modifiers ( ) const

Reimplement to return custom Modifiers, default is None

Reimplemented from Cutelyst::Component.

QString Cutelyst::Action::ns ( ) const

Returns the private namespace this action lives in.

virtual qint8 Cutelyst::Action::numberOfArgs ( ) const

Returns the number of args this action expects. This is 0 if the action doesn't take any arguments and undef if it will take any number of arguments.

virtual qint8 Cutelyst::Action::numberOfCaptures ( ) const

Returns the number of captures this action expects for Chained actions.

Reimplemented in Cutelyst::ActionChain.

void Cutelyst::Action::setAttributes ( const QMap< QString, QString > &  attributes)

Defines the Actions attibutes that were defined using the C_ATTR macro on Controller's method declaration.

void Cutelyst::Action::setController ( Controller controller)

The controller which this action belongs to

void Cutelyst::Action::setMethod ( const QMetaMethod &  method)

The method to be invoked by this Action

void Cutelyst::Action::setupAction ( const QVariantHash &  args,
Application app 

Called by dispatcher to setup the Action
