Mail::Message::Field::UserGContributed Perl Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup(3)

NAME
       Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup - A group of
       Mail::Message::Field::Address objects

INHERITANCE
	Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup
	  is an	User::Identity::Collection::Emails
	  is an	User::Identity::Collection
	  is an	User::Identity::Item

SYNOPSIS
	my $g =	Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->new(name => 'name');

	my $a =	Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(...);
	$g->addAddress($a);

	my $f =	Mail::Message::Field::Addresses->new;
	$f->addGroup($g);

DESCRIPTION
       An address group	collects a set of e-mail addresses (in this case they
       are Mail::Message::Field::Address objects).

       Extends "DESCRIPTION" in	User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

OVERLOADED
       Extends "OVERLOADED" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       overload: @{}
	   Inherited, see "OVERLOADED" in User::Identity::Collection

       overload: stringification
	   Returns the string()	value.

       overload: stringification
	   Inherited, see "OVERLOADED" in User::Identity::Collection

METHODS
       Extends "METHODS" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       $obj->string()
	   Returns the address group as	string.	 When no name is specified, it
	   will	only be	a comma	separated list of addresses.  With a name, the
	   groups name will be prepended and a semi-colon appended.  When no
	   addresses where included and	there is no name, then "undef" is
	   returned.

   Constructors
       Extends "Constructors" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       $obj->coerce($object)
	   Coerce an $object into a Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup.
	   Currently, you can only coerce User::Identity::Collection::Emails
	   (which is the base class for	this one) into this one.

       Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->new( [$name], %options )
	   Inherited, see "Constructors" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails

   Attributes
       Extends "Attributes" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       $obj->description()
	   Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->itemType()
	   Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Collection

       $obj->name( [$newname] )
	   Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->roles()
	   Inherited, see "Attributes" in User::Identity::Collection

   Collections
       Extends "Collections" in	User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       $obj->add($collection, $role)
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->addCollection( $object | <[$type],	%options> )
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->collection($name)
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->parent( [$parent] )
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->removeCollection($object|$name)
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->type()
       Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup->type()
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

       $obj->user()
	   Inherited, see "Collections"	in User::Identity::Item

   Maintaining roles
       Extends "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       $obj->addRole($role| <[$name],%options> | ARRAY)
	   Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

       $obj->removeRole($role|$name)
	   Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

       $obj->renameRole( <$role|$oldname>, $newname )
	   Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

       $obj->sorted()
	   Inherited, see "Maintaining roles" in User::Identity::Collection

   Searching
       Extends "Searching" in User::Identity::Collection::Emails.

       $obj->find($name|CODE|undef)
	   Inherited, see "Searching" in User::Identity::Collection

   Addresses
       $obj->addAddress(STRING|$address|%options)
	   Add one e-mail address to the list which is maintained in the
	   group. This is a wrapper around addRole() adding flexibility	on how
	   addresses are specified.  An	$address can be	anything which is
	   acceptable for Mail::Message::Field::Address::coerce() or a list of
	   options which will create such an object.

	   example: of adding an address to an address group

	    my @data = (full_name => "Myself", address => 'me@tux.org');
	    $group->addAddress(@data);

	    my $addr = Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(@data);
	    $group->addAddress(@data);

	    my $ma = Mail::Address->new(...);
	    $group->addAddress($ma);

       $obj->addresses()
	   Returns all addresses defined in this group.	 The addresses will be
	   ordered alphabetically to make automated testing possible: roles
	   are stored in a hash, so have an unpredictable order	by default.

	   example: getting all	addresses from a group

	    my @addrs =	$group->addresses;
	    my @addrs =	map { $_->address } $self->roles; #same

   Error handling
DIAGNOSTICS
       Error: $object is not a collection.
	   The first argument is an object, but	not of a class which extends
	   User::Identity::Collection.

       Error: Cannot coerce a $type into a Mail::Message::Field::AddrGroup
       Error: Cannot create a $type to add this	to my collection.
	   Some	options	are specified to create	a $type	object,	which is
	   native to this collection.  However,	for some reason	this failed.

       Error: Cannot load collection module for	$type ($class).
	   Either the specified	$type does not exist, or that module named
	   $class returns compilation errors.  If the type as specified	in the
	   warning is not the name of a	package, you specified a nickname
	   which was not defined.  Maybe you forgot the	'require' the package
	   which defines the nickname.

       Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: already exists
       Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: doesn't exist
       Error: Creation of a collection via $class failed.
	   The $class did compile, but it was not possible to create an	object
	   of that class using the options you specified.

       Error: Don't know what type of collection you want to add.
	   If you add a	collection, it must either by a	collection object or a
	   list	of options which can be	used to	create a collection object.
	   In the latter case, the type	of collection must be specified.

       Warning:	No collection $name
	   The collection with $name does not exist and	can not	be created.

       Error: Wrong type of role for $collection: requires a $expect but got a
       $type
	   Each	$collection groups sets	of roles of one	specific type
	   ($expect).  You cannot add objects of a different $type.
