class Row

Library: Data
Package: DataCore
Header: Poco/Data/Row.h

Description

Row class provides a data type for RecordSet iteration purposes. Dereferencing a RowIterator returns Row. Rows are sortable. The sortability is maintained at all times (i.e. there is always at least one column specified as a sorting criteria) . The default and minimal sorting criteria is the first field (position 0). The default sorting criteria can be replaced with any other field by calling replaceSortField() member function. Additional fields can be added to sorting criteria, in which case the field precedence corresponds to addition order (i.e. later added fields have lower sorting precedence). These features make Row suitable for use with standard sorted containers and algorithms. The main constraint is that all the rows from a set that is being sorted must have the same sorting criteria (i.e., the same set of fields must be in sorting criteria in the same order). Since rows don't know about each other, it is the programmer's responsibility to ensure this constraint is satisfied. Field names are a shared pointer to a vector of strings. For efficiency sake, a constructor taking a shared pointer to names vector argument is provided. The stream operator is provided for Row data type as a free-standing function.

Member Summary

Member Functions: addSortField, append, fieldCount, formatNames, formatValues, get, getFormatter, getSortMap, names, namesToString, operator !=, operator <, operator ==, operator [], removeSortField, replaceSortField, reset, resetSort, separator, set, setFormatter, setSortMap, values, valuesToString

Types

NameVec

typedef RowFormatter::NameVec NameVec;

NameVecPtr

typedef RowFormatter::NameVecPtr NameVecPtr;

SortMap

typedef std::vector < SortTuple > SortMap;

The type for map holding fields used for sorting criteria. Fields are added sequentially and have precedence that corresponds to field adding sequence order (rather than field's position in the row). This requirement rules out use of std::map due to its sorted nature.

SortMapPtr

typedef SharedPtr < SortMap > SortMapPtr;

SortTuple

typedef Tuple < std::size_t, ComparisonType > SortTuple;

ValueVec

typedef RowFormatter::ValueVec ValueVec;

Enumerations

ComparisonType

COMPARE_AS_EMPTY

COMPARE_AS_INTEGER

COMPARE_AS_FLOAT

COMPARE_AS_STRING
