Piwik\ViewDataTable\

RequestConfig

Contains base request properties for ViewDataTable instances.

Manipulating these properties will change the way a ViewDataTable loads report data.

Client Side Parameters

Client side parameters are request properties that should be passed on to the browser so client side JavaScript can use them. These properties will also be passed to the server with every AJAX request made.

Only affects ViewDataTables that output HTML.

Overridable Properties

Overridable properties are properties that can be set via the query string. If a request has a query parameter that matches an overridable property, the property will be set to the query parameter value.

Reusing base properties

Many of the properties in this class only have meaning for the Visualization class, but can be set for other visualizations that extend ViewDataTable directly.

Visualizations that extend ViewDataTable directly and want to re-use these properties must make sure the properties are used in the exact same way they are used in Visualization.

Defining new request properties

If you are creating your own visualization and want to add new request properties for it, extend this class and add your properties as fields.

Properties are marked as client side parameters by calling the addPropertiesThatShouldBeAvailableClientSide() method.

Properties are marked as overridable by calling the addPropertiesThatCanBeOverwrittenByQueryParams() method.

Example

Defining new request properties

class MyCustomVizRequestConfig extends RequestConfig
{
    /**
     * My custom property. It is overridable.
     *\/
    public $my_custom_property = false;

    /**
     * Another custom property. It is available client side.
     *\/
    public $another_custom_property = true;

    public function __construct()
    {
        parent::__construct();

        $this->addPropertiesThatShouldBeAvailableClientSide(array('another_custom_property'));
        $this->addPropertiesThatCanBeOverwrittenByQueryParams(array('my_custom_property'));
    }
}
