Manual Reference Pages - JIFTY::CLIENT (3)
Jifty::Client - Subclass of WWW::Mechanize with extra Jifty features
This module is a base for building robots to interact with Jifty applications.
It currently contains much overlapping code with Jifty::Test::WWW::Mechanize,
except that it does not inherit from Test::WWW::Mechanize.
Expect this code to be refactored in the near future.
Overrides WWW::Mechanizes new to automatically give the
bot a cookie jar.
moniker_for ACTION, FIELD1 => VALUE1, FIELD2 => VALUE2
Finds the moniker of the first action of type ACTION whose
constructor field FIELD1 is VALUE1, and so on.
fill_in_action MONIKER, FIELD1 => VALUE1, FIELD2 => VALUE2, ...
Finds the fields on the current page with the names FIELD1, FIELD2,
etc in the MONIKER action, and fills them in. Returns the
HTML::Form object of the form that the action is in, or undef if it
cant find all the fields.
action_form MONIKER [ARGUMENTNAMES]
Returns the form (as an HTML::Form object) corresponding to the
given moniker (which also contains inputs for the given
argumentnames), and also selects it as the current form. Returns
undef if it cant be found.
action_field_value MONIKER, FIELD
Finds the fields on the current page with the names FIELD in the
action MONIKER, and returns its value, or undef if it cant be found.
send_action CLASS ARGUMENT => VALUE, [ ... ]
Sends a request to the server via the webservices API, and returns the
Jifty::Result of the action. CLASS specifies the class of the
action, and all parameters thereafter supply argument keys and values.
The URI of the page is unchanged after this; this is accomplished by
using the back button after making the webservice request.
fragment_request PATH ARGUMENT => VALUE, [ ... ]
Makes a request for the fragment at PATH, using the webservices API,
and returns the string of the result.
field_error_text MONIKER, FIELD
Finds the error span on the current page for the name FIELD in the
action MONIKER, and returns the text (tags stripped) from it. (If the
field cant be found, return undef).
WWW::Mechanize has a bug where it returns the wrong value for
uri after redirect. This fixes that. See
Returns the server-side Jifty::Web::Session object associated with
this Mechanize object.
Returns the current continuation of the Mechanize object, if any. Or,
given an ID, returns the continuation with that ID.
Returns the Jifty::CurrentUser object or descendant, if any.
