NAME

Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup - A group of Mail::Message::Field::Address objects  

INHERITANCE

 Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup
   is an User::Identity::Collection::Emails
   is an User::Identity::Collection
   is an User::Identity::Item

 

SYNOPSIS

 my $g = Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->new(name => 'name');

 my $a = Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(...);
 $g->addAddress($a);
 
 my $f = Mail::Message::Field::Addresses->new;
 $f->addGroup($g);

 

DESCRIPTION

An address group collects a set of e-mail addresses (in this case they are Mail::Message::Field::Address objects).

Extends ``DESCRIPTION'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.  

OVERLOADED

Extends ``OVERLOADED'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.
overload: @{}
Inherited, see ``OVERLOADED'' in User::Identity::Collection
overload: stringification
Returns the string() value.

METHODS

Extends ``METHODS'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.
$obj->string()
Returns the address group as string. When no name is specified, it will only be a comma separated list of addresses. With a name, the groups name will be prepended and a semi-colon appended. When no addresses where included and there is no name, then "undef" is returned.
 

Constructors

Extends ``Constructors'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.
$obj->coerce($object)
Coerce an $object into a Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup. Currently, you can only coerce User::Identity::Collection::Emails (which is the base class for this one) into this one.
Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->new( [$name], %options )
Inherited, see ``Constructors'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails
 

Attributes

Collections

Extends ``Collections'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.
$obj->add($collection, $role)
Inherited, see ``Collections'' in User::Identity::Item
$obj->addCollection( $object | <[$type], %options> )
Inherited, see ``Collections'' in User::Identity::Item
$obj->collection($name)
Inherited, see ``Collections'' in User::Identity::Item
$obj->parent( [$parent] )
Inherited, see ``Collections'' in User::Identity::Item
$obj->removeCollection($object|$name)
Inherited, see ``Collections'' in User::Identity::Item
$obj->type()

$obj->user()

Maintaining roles

Extends ``Maintaining roles'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.
$obj->addRole($role| <[$name],%options> | ARRAY)
Inherited, see ``Maintaining roles'' in User::Identity::Collection
$obj->removeRole($role|$name)
Inherited, see ``Maintaining roles'' in User::Identity::Collection
$obj->renameRole( <$role|$oldname>, $newname )
Inherited, see ``Maintaining roles'' in User::Identity::Collection
$obj->sorted()
Inherited, see ``Maintaining roles'' in User::Identity::Collection
 

Searching

Extends ``Searching'' in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.
$obj->find($name|CODE|undef)
Inherited, see ``Searching'' in User::Identity::Collection
 

Addresses

$obj->addAddress(STRING|$address|%options)
Add one e-mail address to the list which is maintained in the group. This is a wrapper around addRole() adding flexibility on how addresses are specified. An $address can be anything which is acceptable for Mail::Message::Field::Address::coerce() or a list of options which will create such an object.

example: of adding an address to an address group

 my @data = (full_name => "Myself", address => 'me@tux.org');
 $group->addAddress(@data);

 my $addr = Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(@data);
 $group->addAddress(@data);

 my $ma = Mail::Address->new(...);
 $group->addAddress($ma);

$obj->addresses()
Returns all addresses defined in this group. The addresses will be ordered alphabetically to make automated testing possible: roles are stored in a hash, so have an unpredictable order by default.

example: getting all addresses from a group

 my @addrs = $group->addresses;
 my @addrs = map { $_->address } $self->roles; #same

 

Error handling

 

DIAGNOSTICS

Error: $object is not a collection.
The first argument is an object, but not of a class which extends User::Identity::Collection.
Error: Cannot coerce a $type into a Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup
Error: Cannot create a $type to add this to my collection.
Some options are specified to create a $type object, which is native to this collection. However, for some reason this failed.
Error: Cannot load collection module for $type ($class).
Either the specified $type does not exist, or that module named $class returns compilation errors. If the type as specified in the warning is not the name of a package, you specified a nickname which was not defined. Maybe you forgot the 'require' the package which defines the nickname.
Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: already exists
Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: doesn't exist
Error: Creation of a collection via $class failed.
The $class did compile, but it was not possible to create an object of that class using the options you specified.
Error: Don't know what type of collection you want to add.
If you add a collection, it must either by a collection object or a list of options which can be used to create a collection object. In the latter case, the type of collection must be specified.
Warning: No collection $name
The collection with $name does not exist and can not be created.
Error: Wrong type of role for $collection: requires a $expect but got a $type
Each $collection groups sets of roles of one specific type ($expect). You cannot add objects of a different $type.
