Simple relationship handler that allows a new version of the primary table to be linked in.

The base relationship handler can only handle a single join. Some relationships are more complex and might require chains of joins; for those, you must utilize a custom relationship handler.

Definition items:

  • base: The new base table this relationship will be adding. This does not have to be a declared base table, but if there are no tables that utilize this base table, it won't be very effective.
  • base field: The field to use in the relationship; if left out this will be assumed to be the primary field.
  • relationship table: The actual table this relationship operates against. This is analogous to using a 'table' override.
  • relationship field: The actual field this relationship operates against. This is analogous to using a 'real field' override.
  • label: The default label to provide for this relationship, which is shown in parentheses next to any field/sort/filter/argument that uses the relationship.

views_handler_relationship::use_group_by function You can't groupby a relationship. Overrides views_handler::use_group_by

views_object::destroy function
views_object::export_option function
views_object::export_options function
views_object::export_option_always function Always exports the option, regardless of the default value.
views_object::options Deprecated function Set default options on this object. Called by the constructor in a complex chain to deal with backward compatibility.
views_object::set_default_options function Set default options. For backward compatibility, it sends the options array; this is a feature that will likely disappear at some point.
views_object::set_definition function Let the handler know what its full definition is.
views_object::unpack_options function Unpack options over our existing defaults, drilling down into arrays so that defaults don't get totally blown away.
