A DAO factory can automatically generate events on methods call.

Native methods events

update, insert, delete and deleteby methods can generate events, either before or after execution, or both. To activate event dispatching, you have to declare which events your application want to catch in events attribute of main factory tag. event names are separated by a comma. complete event list includes: deletebefore, deleteafter, updatebefore, updateafter, insertbefore, insertafter, deletebybefore, deletebyafter.

Below is a detailed list of each event and its parameters. Every event has a dao corresponding to their dao selector.

  • daoDeleteBefore : key (key values of the to be deleted record)
  • daoDeleteAfter : key, result (1 if record is truely deleted)
  • daoDeleteByBefore : key, criterias (objet jDaoConditions)
  • daoDeleteByAfter : key, criterias, result (number of deleted records)
  • daoUpdateBefore : record (to be updated record object)
  • daoUpdateAfter : record
  • daoInsertBefore : record (to be inserted record object)
  • daoInsertAfter : record

Example :

  <factory events="deleteAfter, insertAfter"> ...

And the lsitenr:

class myListener extends jEventListener{
   function onDaoDeleteAfter ($event) {
        $dao = ;
        if ($event->getParam('dao') == 'mymodule~thedao') {
            $key = $event->getParam('key');

Customized method events

Customized update or delete methods (XML or PHP methods) can declare eventbefore and/or eventafter attributes and set them to true or false.

generated events will be: daoSpecificUpdateBefore, daoSpecificUpdateAfter, daoSpecificDeleteBefore and daoSpecificDeleteAfter. They will emitted with those parameters:

  • dao : dao selector
  • method: method name
  • params: parameters list
