Module: GraphQL::Execution::Typecast

Defined in:
lib/graphql/execution/typecast.rb

Overview

GraphQL object {value, current_type} can be cast to potential_type when: - current_type == potential_type - current_type is a union and it contains potential_type - potential_type is a union and it contains current_type - current_type is an interface and potential_type implements it - potential_type is an interface and current_type implements it

Class Method Details

.compatible?(current_type, potential_type, query_ctx) ⇒ Boolean

While value is exposed by GraphQL as an instance of current_type, should it also be treated as an instance of potential_type?

This is used for checking whether fragments apply to an object.

Parameters:

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    true if value be evaluated as a potential_type
