Inheriting behaviors


#1

Hi all,

I was wondering is it possible to inherit behaviors? Example: The
mailer
behavior defines some form tags that could be made fairly generic with
minor
tweaking. It seems like generic form tags would be pretty useful. I
was
trying to do something like:

module FormBehavior
def self.append_features(base)
base.class_eval %{
define_tags do
tag “#{form_name}:form” do |tag|
tag_attr = tag.attr.symbolize_keys
results = %Q()
results << tag.expand
results << %Q()
end
end
}
end
end

But #{form_name} and #{page.url} both get evaluated in the context of
the
module. There is most likely a simpel way around this but at least that
code shows the gist of what I’m trying to do.

Any ideas, help, thoughts would be appriciated.

Thanks!
Justin

Why not do this:

require ‘behaviors/mailer_behavior’

MailerBehavior.define_tags do
define_tags do
tag “#{form_name}:form” do |tag|
tag_attr = tag.attr.symbolize_keys
results = %Q()
results << tag.expand
results << %Q()
end
end
end

?

During a migration to radiant, we had to correct the publish date of
archived posts via the database; we had a little idea:

‘status of a page’ select box is now:
-draft
-reviewed
-published
-hidden

wouldn’t it be nice to have:
-draft
-reviewed
-publish now
-publish on…
-hidden

It allows the schedule of a post, and even modifying a publication
date in the past.
