The DefaultScope plugin seeks to add the functionality of Rails' ActiveRecord::Base#default_scope to Wheels. While you can use
set() right now in Wheels to alter the global defaults of the
findAll() method, you can't set a scope for individual models. With this plugin, you can specify default values for the
findAll() method on a specific model.
This plugin overrides the
findAll() method and adds a new method called
- defaultScope([ where, order, select, distinct, include, maxRows, page, perPage, count, handle, cache, reload, parameterize, returnAs, returnIncluded ])
This method is mixed in to your Models and is meant to be invoked from the
init() method. It takes all of the same optional arguments as the
findAll() method, and will set them as defaults for future calls to that method.
<!--- in any model ---> <cffunction name="init"> <!--- assume we have a model containing user information, and you want to sort by the last name then first for most of your findAll() requests. ---> <cfset defaultScope(order="lastName, firstName") /> </cffunction>
While this method has been overridden in order to accommodate the new defaultScope settings, it still behaves the same as it did before. Use it the way you normally would. Just remember that you might have set some values in the
defaultScope(). If you set new values for the same parameters here, those values will override the values set in
How to Use
Install it! Then the new method is automatically available to you.
All you need to do is delete the /plugins/DefaultScope-x.x.zip file.

- If for some reason you decide to use ordered arguments rather than named arguments, then it won't work. The new
findAll()expects named arguments only.
- The plugin could do with some testing and better documentation. Also, it would probably be good to steer away from my ... unorthodox method of defining arguments for methods.
- There's no consideration for environment at this time. It might be a good idea to cache the values from
defaultScope()if you're in production mode. I need to learn how to do that.
findAll()is used by the calculations methods (count, sum, average, etc.), which due to the SQL methods they use can't take an 'order' parameter. These methods are not making sure this parameter isn't being passed to
findAll(), so this plugin now strips out the 'order' parameter before the calculations methods run. (Thanks, andybellenie, and you can see his path request for CFWheels to fix this at http://code.google.com/p/cfwheels/issues/detail?id=366)
