Instance Method Details

#_childrenArray<Document>

Get all child Documents to this Document, going n levels deep if necessary. This is used when calling update persistence operations from the root document, where changes in the entire tree need to be determined. Note that persistence from the embedded documents will always be preferred, since they are optimized calls… This operation can get expensive in domains with large hierarchies.

Examples:

Get all the document's children.

person._children

Returns:

  • (Array<Document>)

    All child documents in the hierarchy.

Since:

  • 4.0.0

def _children
  @__children ||= collect_children
end

#_rootDocument

Return the root document in the object graph. If the current document is the root object in the graph it will return self.

Examples:

Get the root document in the hierarchy.

document._root

Returns:

  • (Document)

    The root document in the hierarchy.

Since:

  • 4.0.0

def _root
  object = self
  while (object._parent) do object = object._parent; end
  object || self
end

#_root?true, false

Is this document the root document of the hierarchy?

Examples:

Is the document the root?

document._root?

Returns:

  • (true, false)

    If the document is the root.

Since:

  • 3.1.0

  _parent ? false : true
end

#collect_childrenArray<Document>

Collect all the children of this document.

Examples:

Collect all the children.

document.collect_children

Returns:

      Array.wrap(child).each do |doc|
        children.push(doc)
        children.concat(doc._children)
      end if child
    end
  end
  children
end

#flag_children_persistedArray<Document>

Marks all children as being persisted.

Examples:

Flag all the children.

document.flag_children_persisted

Returns:

  • (Array<Document>)

    The flagged children.

Since:

  • 3.0.7

    child.new_record = false
  end
end

#hereditary?true, false

Determines if the document is a subclass of another document.

Examples:

Check if the document is a subclass

Square.new.hereditary?

Returns:

  • (true, false)

    True if hereditary, false if not.

Since:

  • 4.0.0

end

#parentize(document) ⇒ Document

Sets up a child/parent association. This is used for newly created objects so they can be properly added to the graph.

Examples:

Set the parent document.

document.parentize(parent)

Parameters:

  • document (Document)

    The parent document.

Returns:

Since:

  • 4.0.0

# File 'lib/mongoid/traversable.rb', line 84

def parentize(document)
  self._parent = document
end

#remove_child(child) ⇒ Object

Remove a child document from this parent. If an embeds one then set to nil, otherwise remove from the embeds many.

This is called from the RemoveEmbedded persistence command.

Examples:

Remove the child.

document.remove_child(child)

Parameters:

  • child (Document)

    The child (embedded) document to remove.

Since:

  • 2.0.0.beta.1

    remove_ivar(name)
  else
    relation = send(name)
    relation.send(:delete_one, child)
  end
end

#reset_persisted_childrenArray<Document>

After children are persisted we can call this to move all their changes and flag them as persisted in one call.

Examples:

Reset the children.

document.reset_persisted_children

Returns:

Since:

  • 2.1.0
