Detailed Description

encapsulates operations on a database form.

This instance allows for operations on a user interface form, by saving its clients from various tedious and error-prone operations.

As an example, imagine you have a database form, displayed in some user interface, which you want to move to the next record.
It is as easy as calling com::sun::star::sdbc::XResultSet::next() on this form, right? Wrong. First, you need to care for saving the current record, so the user doesn't lose her input. So you need to call com::sun::star::sdbc::XResultSetUpdate::updateRow() or com::sun::star::sdbc::XResultSetUpdate::insertRow(), depending on the form's com::sun::star::sdb::RowSet::IsNew property.
But then you're done, right? Wrong, again.
When the user just entered some data into one of the form fields, but did not yet leave this field, then the data is not yet committed to the form, not to talk about being committed to the underlying database. So, before everything else, you would need to obtain the active control of the form, and commit it.
Now you're done ...

As another example, consider that you want to delete the current record from the form. You have to take into account any com::sun::star::form::XConfirmDeleteListeners registered at the com::sun::star::form::FormController or the com::sun::star::form::component::DataForm.

If you agree that this is ugly to do and maintain, then XFormOperations is for you. It provides a execute() method, which will do all of the above for you; plus some similar convenient wrappers for similar functionality.

Member Function Documentation

boolean commitCurrentControl ( )
raises (::com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLException
)

commits the current control of our controller

Exceptions
com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLExceptionif a database access error occurs
boolean commitCurrentRecord ( [out] boolean  RecordInserted)
raises (::com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLException
)

commits the current record of the form

Parameters
RecordInsertedwill be TRUE if a record has been inserted, i.e. the form was positioned on the insertion row.
Returns
TRUE if and only if the current record needed being committed. That's the case if the record or the active control of the form were modified.
Exceptions
com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLExceptionif a database access error occurs

executes the operation associated with the given feature

Parameters
Featurethe feature which is to be executed. Must be one of the FormFeature constants.
Exceptions
com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentExceptionif the given Feature is unknown, not executable, or strictly requires arguments to be executed.
com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLExceptionif a database access error occurs
com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetExceptionif an exception is caught which is no com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException and no com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLException.

executeWithArguments
void executeWithArguments ( [in] short  Feature,
[in] sequence< ::com::sun::star::beans::NamedValue Arguments 
)
raises ( ::com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentException ,
::com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLException ,
::com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetException
)

executes the operation associated with the given feature, with passing arguments for execution

Parameters
Featurethe feature which is to be executed. Must be one of the FormFeature constants.
Argumentsthe named arguments for the feature to execute. See the FormFeature list for features which require arguments.
Exceptions
com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentExceptionif the given feature is unknown, or not executable
com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentExceptionif the given arguments are not sufficient to execute the feature
com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLExceptionif a database access error occurs
com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetExceptionif an exception is caught which is no com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException and no com::sun::star::sdbc::SQLException.
FeatureState getState ( [in] short  Feature)

retrieves the current state of the given feature

You would usually use this to update some user interface to reflect this state. For instance, you could imagine a toolbar button which is associated with a given feature. This button would be enabled if and only if the respective feature is currently available, and be checked if and only if the feature state is a boolean evaluating to TRUE.

Parameters
Featurethe feature whose state is to be determined. Must be one of the FormFeature constants.
An invalid value here will be silently ignored, and simply return a FeatureState indicating disabled with a NULL state.
boolean isEnabled ( [in] short  Feature)

determines whether a feature is currently enabled.

Calling this is equivalent to calling getState(), and evaluating the FeatureState::Enabled member.

Parameters
Featurethe feature whose state is to be determined. Must be one of the FormFeature constants.
An invalid value here will be silently ignored, and simply return FALSE.
boolean isInsertionRow ( )
raises (::com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetException
)

determines whether the form is currently positioned on the insertion row

This is a convenience method only. Calling it is equivalent to examining the com::sun::star::sdb::RowSet::IsNew property of the form.

Exceptions
com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetExceptionif an error occurs obtaining the form property
boolean isModifiedRow ( )
raises (::com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetException
)

determines whether the current row of the form is modified

This is a convenience method only. Calling it is equivalent to examining the com::sun::star::sdb::RowSet::IsModified property of the form.

Exceptions
com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetExceptionif an error occurs obtaining the form property

Member Data Documentation

::com::sun::star::form::runtime::XFormController Controller
attributereadonly

provides access to the form controller which the instance is operating on.

Note that it is possible to operate on a user interface form without actually having access to the form controller instance. However, in this case some functionality will not be available. In particular, every feature which relies on the active control of the controller might be of limited use.

::com::sun::star::sdbc::XRowSet Cursor
attributereadonly

provides access to the cursor of the form the instance is operating on.

XFeatureInvalidation FeatureInvalidation
attribute

denotes the instance which should be notified about features whose state might have changed.

If this attribute is not NULL, the instance which it denotes will be notified whenever the state of any supported feature might have changed.

For instance, imagine a form whose current row has just been moved to another record, using the execute() method. This means that potentially, the state of all movement-related features might have changed.

Note that the instance does not actually notify changes in the feature states, but only potential changes: It's up to the callee to react on this appropriately. This is since OpenOffice.org's application framework features own mechanisms to cache and invalidate feature states, so we do not burden this implementation here with such mechanisms.
