On_before_delete function

edited September 2011 in Modules
So I have a model that handles some slides I have in the page. My problem is having a fail safe in case the file doesn't delete. What would I have to return so the delete method only runs once the on_before_delete succeeds?

    Also I'm having a bit of a problem with saving a file I get "You did not select a file to upload." as an error message. Basically the only thing I did was:

    function form_fields($values = array(), $related = array()) {
    $fields = parent::form_fields($values, $related);

    $fields['file']['type'] = 'file';

    return $fields;

    Am I possibly doing something wrong?
  • I might not be understanding correctly, but for a fail safe, couldn't you just return true or false from on_before_delete and then in the delete method pass in that variable and check to see whether it's true or false?

    I think in your case, you may just want to overwrite the model's delete method with your own logic.

    I thought maybe the delete method might check what the result of on_before_delete is. Also any help with my second problem with the insert? That would be great. :) Thanks in advance.

    The on_before_delete() hook doesn't check for anything returned... it just runs (see line 1194 of MY_Model).

    With regards to the saving issue, I wasn't able to replicate that problem locally. Are you using another model hook to process the file? That error is thrown by the CI's Upload class.
