CAttributeCollection

Package system.collections
Inheritance class CAttributeCollection » CMap » CComponent

CAttributeCollection implements a collection for storing attribute names and values.

Besides all functionalities provided by CMap, CAttributeCollection allows you to get and set attribute values like getting and setting properties. For example, the following usages are all valid for a CAttributeCollection object:
$collection->text='text'; // same as:  $collection->add('text','text');
echo $collection->text;   // same as:  echo $collection->itemAt('text');


The case sensitivity of attribute names can be toggled by setting the caseSensitive property of the collection.

Property Details

caseSensitive property
public boolean $caseSensitive;

whether the keys are case-sensitive. Defaults to false.

Method Details

__get() method
public mixed __get(string $name)
$name string the property name or the event name
{return} mixed the property value or the event handler list

Returns a property value or an event handler list by property or event name. This method overrides the parent implementation by returning a key value if the key exists in the collection.

__isset() method (available since v1.0.1)
public boolean __isset(string $name)
$name string the property name or the event name
{return} boolean whether the property value is null

Checks if a property value is null. This method overrides the parent implementation by checking if the key exists in the collection and contains a non-null value.

__set() method
public void __set(string $name, mixed $value)
$name string the property name or event name
$value mixed the property value or event handler

Sets value of a component property. This method overrides the parent implementation by adding a new key value to the collection.

__unset() method (available since v1.0.1)
public void __unset(string $name)
$name string the property name or the event name

Sets a component property to be null. This method overrides the parent implementation by clearing the specified key value.

add() method
public void add(mixed $key, mixed $value)
$key mixed key
$value mixed value

Adds an item into the map. This overrides the parent implementation by converting the key to lower case first if caseSensitive is false.

canGetProperty() method
public boolean canGetProperty(string $name)
$name string the property name
{return} boolean whether the property can be read

Determines whether a property can be read. This method overrides parent implementation by returning true if the collection contains the named key.

canSetProperty() method
public boolean canSetProperty(string $name)
$name string the property name
{return} boolean true

Determines whether a property can be set. This method overrides parent implementation by always returning true because you can always add a new value to the collection.

contains() method
public boolean contains(mixed $key)
$key mixed the key
{return} boolean whether the map contains an item with the specified key

Returns whether the specified is in the map. This overrides the parent implementation by converting the key to lower case first if caseSensitive is false.

hasProperty() method
public boolean hasProperty(string $name)
$name string the property name
{return} boolean whether the property is defined

Determines whether a property is defined. This method overrides parent implementation by returning true if the collection contains the named key.

itemAt() method
public mixed itemAt(mixed $key)
$key mixed the key
{return} mixed the element at the offset, null if no element is found at the offset

Returns the item with the specified key. This overrides the parent implementation by converting the key to lower case first if caseSensitive is false.

remove() method
public mixed remove(mixed $key)
$key mixed the key of the item to be removed
{return} mixed the removed value, null if no such key exists.

Removes an item from the map by its key. This overrides the parent implementation by converting the key to lower case first if caseSensitive is false.
