  2. Resources

Class ModActiveRecord is the base class for classes representing relational data. It provides methods to check if attributes were modified and clearing of relations than depends on modified attributes

/**
 * This is the model class for table "book".
 *
 * The followings are the available columns in table 'book':
 * @property string $book_id
 * @property string $title
 * @property string $author_id
 *
 * The followings are the available model relations:
 * @property Author $author
 */
class Book extends ModActiveRecord {

	// ...
 
	/**
	 * Define relation with Author class by author_id attribute
	 */
	public function relations()
	{
		return array(
			'author' => array(self::BELONGS_TO, 'Author', 'author_id'),
		);
	}
 
 	/**
	 * Do something before save() when author_id attribute is modified
	 */
	public function beforeSave()
	{
		$authorModified = $this->getModified('author_id');
		if ($authorModified)
		{
			$booksCollection = new BooksCollectionCache;
			if ($authorModified['old'])
				echo "Say 'Goodbye!' to author #", $authorModified['old'], "\n";

// 1. get old and new attribute values
$book = new Book;
$book->author_id = 1;
var_export($book->getIsModified('author_id')); // --> true
var_export($book->getModified('author_id')); // --> array('old'=>null, 'new'=>1);

// 2. clear dependencies
$book = new Book;
$book->author_id = 1;
echo $book->author->name; // --> Jack London
$book->author_id = 5;
echo $book->author->name; // --> Mark Twain 

// 3. do something before save if attributes were modified
$book->save(); // @see Book::beforeSave()
// --> Say "Hello" to author #5
// note: all isModified marks will be cleared after save()
var_export($book->getIsModified('author_id')); // --> false
var_export($book->getModified('author_id')); // --> null

// 4. reset modified marks
$book = new Book;
$book->author_id = 1;
$book->title = 'Tom Soyer';
var_export($book->getIsModified('author_id')); // --> true
var_export($book->getIsModified('title')); // --> true
$book->resetModified('author_id'); // forget about modified author_id
var_export($book->getIsModified('author_id')); // --> false
var_export($book->getModified('author_id')); // --> null

$book->resetModified(); // forget about any modified attribute
var_export($book->getIsModified()); // --> false
var_export($book->getModified('author_id')); // --> null
var_export($book->getModified('title')); // --> null
