Method Detail

__construct() public

__construct(?\Cake\Controller\Controller $controller)

Constructor.

Parameters

\Cake\Controller\Controller|null $controller optional

Controller instance.

__debugInfo() public

__debugInfo()

Debug friendly object properties.

Returns

array

__get() public

__get(string $name)

Provide public read access to the loaded objects

Parameters

string $name

Name of property to read

Returns

object|null

__isset() public

__isset(string $name)

Provide isset access to _loaded

Parameters

string $name

Name of object being checked.

Returns

bool

__set() public

__set(string $name, mixed $object)

Sets an object.

Parameters

string $name

Name of a property to set.

object $object

Object to set.

__unset() public

__unset(string $name)

Unsets an object.

Parameters

string $name

Name of a property to unset.

_checkDuplicate() protected

_checkDuplicate(string $name, array $config)

Check for duplicate object loading.

If a duplicate is being loaded and has different configuration, that is bad and an exception will be raised.

An exception is raised, as replacing the object will not update any references other objects may have. Additionally, simply updating the runtime configuration is not a good option as we may be missing important constructor logic dependent on the configuration.

Parameters

string $name

The name of the alias in the registry.

array $config

The config data for the new instance.

Throws

RuntimeException
When a duplicate is found.

_create() protected

_create(mixed $class, string $alias, array $config)

Create the component instance.

Part of the template method for Cake\Core\ObjectRegistry::load() Enabled components will be registered with the event manager.

Parameters

string $class

The classname to create.

string $alias

The alias of the component.

array $config

An array of config to use for the component.

Returns

\Cake\Controller\Component

The constructed component class.

_resolveClassName() protected

_resolveClassName(string $class)

Resolve a component classname.

Part of the template method for Cake\Core\ObjectRegistry::load()

Parameters

string $class

Partial classname to resolve.

Returns

string|null

Either the correct class name or null.

_throwMissingClassError() protected

_throwMissingClassError(string $class, ?string $plugin)

Throws an exception when a component is missing.

Part of the template method for Cake\Core\ObjectRegistry::load() and Cake\Core\ObjectRegistry::unload()

Parameters

string $class

The classname that is missing.

string|null $plugin

The plugin the component is missing in.

Throws

Cake\Controller\Exception\MissingComponentException

count() public

count()

Returns the number of loaded objects.

Returns

int

dispatchEvent() public

dispatchEvent(string $name, ?array $data, ?object $subject)

Wrapper for creating and dispatching events.

Returns a dispatched event.

Parameters

string $name

Name of the event.

array|null $data optional

Any value you wish to be transported with this event to it can be read by listeners.

object|null $subject optional

The object that this event applies to ($this by default).

Returns

\Cake\Event\EventInterface

get() public

get(string $name)

Get loaded object instance.

Parameters

string $name

Name of object.

Returns

object

Object instance.

Throws

RuntimeException
If not loaded or found.

getController() public

getController()

Get the controller associated with the collection.

Returns

\Cake\Controller\Controller

Controller instance or null if not set.

getEventManager() public

getEventManager()

Returns the Cake\Event\EventManager manager instance for this object.

You can use this instance to register any new listeners or callbacks to the object events, or create your own events and trigger them at will.

Returns

\Cake\Event\EventManagerInterface

getIterator() public

getIterator()

Returns an array iterator.

Returns

\Traversable

has() public

has(string $name)

Check whether or not a given object is loaded.

Parameters

string $name

The object name to check for.

Returns

bool

True is object is loaded else false.

load() public

load(string $objectName, array $config)

Loads/constructs an object instance.

Will return the instance in the registry if it already exists. If a subclass provides event support, you can use $config['enabled'] = false to exclude constructed objects from being registered for events.

Using Cake\Controller\Controller::$components as an example. You can alias an object by setting the 'className' key, i.e.,

public $components = [
  'Email' => [
    'className' => '\App\Controller\Component\AliasedEmailComponent'
  ];
];

All calls to the Email component would use AliasedEmail instead.

Parameters

string $objectName

The name/class of the object to load.

array $config optional

Additional settings to use when loading the object.

Returns

mixed

Throws

Exception
If the class cannot be found.

loaded() public

loaded()

Get the list of loaded objects.

Returns

string[]

List of object names.

normalizeArray() public

normalizeArray(array $objects)

Normalizes an object array, creates an array that makes lazy loading easier

Parameters

array $objects

Array of child objects to normalize.

Returns

array[]

Array of normalized objects.

reset() public

reset()

Clear loaded instances in the registry.

If the registry subclass has an event manager, the objects will be detached from events as well.

Returns

$this

set() public

set(string $objectName, object $object)

Set an object directly into the registry by name.

If this collection implements events, the passed object will be attached into the event manager

Parameters

string $objectName

The name of the object to set in the registry.

object $object

instance to store in the registry

Returns

$this

setController() public

setController(\Cake\Controller\Controller $controller)

Set the controller associated with the collection.

Parameters

\Cake\Controller\Controller $controller

Controller instance.

Returns

$this

setEventManager() public

setEventManager(\Cake\Event\EventManagerInterface $eventManager)

Returns the Cake\Event\EventManagerInterface instance for this object.

You can use this instance to register any new listeners or callbacks to the object events, or create your own events and trigger them at will.

Parameters

\Cake\Event\EventManagerInterface $eventManager

the eventManager to set

Returns

$this

unload() public

unload(string $objectName)

Remove an object from the registry.

If this registry has an event manager, the object will be detached from any events as well.
