Class: ListDef

olympe.dc. ListDef

A ListDef represents the result of database query. It provides a way to retrieve all the object in the database matching a specific request. A query is defined by a tag and a set of Transformers to applied from the object referenced by that tag. The result of the query is a list of Syncs.

Example:

const ld = new olympe.dc.ListDef(tag, [olympe.dc.Sync.containsRel], olympe.dc.Sync);
ld.transform(new olympe.dc.transformers.Sort(
     new olympe.dc.comparators.Number(new olympe.dc.valuedefs.NumberProperty(prop)));
const n = ld.getFirst();

new ListDef(baseTag [, transformers] [, valueType])

Creates an instance of ListDef.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
baseTag olympe.dc.InstanceTag

Starting instance tag.

transformers !Array.<!olympe.dc.Transformer> | olympe.dc.Transformer <optional>

Initial set of transformers.

valueType function <optional>
<nullable>
olympe.dc.Sync

Type of the expected results.

forEach(onAdd [, onRemove])

Registers callbacks to be called every time an entry is added or removed from this collection.

Note: If the collection is not empty, the 'onAdd' callback will be invoked for each existing entry.

Inherited From:
Overrides:
Implements:

forEachCurrentValue(callback)

Executes the specified callback on each current item. If the callbacks returns false then it will break out of the loop.

Note: This method does not create a node for each callback call. It is just simple iteration on all values present in the enumerable at the time of the method call.

Parameters:

Inherited From:
Overrides:
Implements:

forEachLimited(start, count, onAdd [, onRemove])

Registers callbacks to be called every time an entry whose rank is greater than or equal to start and smaller than start plus count is added or removed from this collection.

Note: If the collection is not empty, the 'onAdd' callback will be immediately invoked for each existing entry.

Parameters:
