Event handling

From Group-Office Groupware and CRM Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

Group-Office fires event on certain actions. You can attach your own functions to do specific actions on these events. To do this create a new module.

eg. modules/myevent.

Inside this folder create the file MyeventModule.php:

class GO_Myevent_MyeventModule extends GO_Base_Module{	
	public static function initListeners() {
		GO_Files_Model_File::model()->addListener('save', 'GO_Myevent_MyeventModule', 'save');
		GO_Files_Model_File::model()->addListener('delete', 'GO_Myevent_MyeventModule', 'delete');
		//attaching to a controller works a bit different
		$c = new GO_Core_Controller_Maintenance();
		$c->addListener('someAction', 'GO_Myevent_MyeventModule', 'doSomething');
	public static function save(&$file){
		//do something with the file module here		

	public static function delete(&$file){
		//do something with the file module here		

	public static function doSomething(){
		//do something with the file module here		

After creating new listeners you must reload Group-Office so it will call the initListeners function.

Standard events

Every model that is derived from GO_Base_Db_ActiveRecord has a "save" and "delete" event. They listeners will be called with the model as the first argument.

Every controller that is derived from GO_Base_Controller_AbstractModelController has a "submit", "load", "display" and "delete" event. They are all called with these parameters: $controller, $response,$model,$params,$modifiedAttributes
