Auto decode/encode attribute value in json, provide array access and json validator.

WARNING! From version 2.0.14 Yii has built-in DB JSON-type, and this behavior is no longer required.

Install

Install via Composer:

composer require paulzi/yii2-json-behavior

or add

"paulzi/yii2-json-behavior" : "~1.0.0"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

Usage

JsonBehavior

Configure your model:

use paulzi\jsonBehavior\JsonBehavior;

class Item extends \yii\db\ActiveRecord
{
    public function behaviors() {
        return [
            [
                'class' => JsonBehavior::className(),
                'attributes' => ['params'],
            ],
        ];
    }
}

Now you can access to attribute as array:

$item = Item::findOne(1);
$item->params['one'] = 'two';
$item->params['two'] = [];
$item->params['two']['key'] = true;
$item->save();

$item = Item::findOne(1);
echo $item['two']['key']; // true

Set attribute via json string:

$item = new Item();
$item->params->set('[2, 4, 42]');
echo $item->params[2]; // 42

Set attribute via array:

$item = new Item();
$item->params->set(['test' => ['one' => 1]]);
echo $item->params['test']['one']; // 1

Convert to json string:

$item = new Item();
$item->params['test'] = ['one' => false, 'two' => [1, 2, 3]];
var_dump((string)$item->params); // {"one":false,"two":[1,2,3]}

Convert to array:

$item = new Item();
$item->params->set('{ "one": 1, "two": null, "three": false, "four": "four" }');
var_dump($item->params->toArray());

Check empty:

$item = new Item();
$item->params->set('{}');
var_dump($item->params->isEmpty()); // true

emptyValue

You can set emptyValue option to define an empty JSON value (default null). Can be '{}', '[]'' or null.

JsonValidator

Configure your model (see behavior config upper):

use paulzi\jsonBehavior\JsonValidator;

class Item extends \yii\db\ActiveRecord
{
    public function rules() {
        return [
            [['params'], JsonValidator::className()],
        ];
    }
}

Validate:

$item = new Item();
$item->attributes = ['params' => '{ test: }'];
var_dump($item->save()); // false
var_dump($item->errors); // ['params' => ['Value is not valid JSON or scalar']]

You can set merge = true, in this case, instead of replacing all field data of the transmitted data, array_merge() will be applied with old data in the field (which are taken from oldAttributes of ActiveRecord). This option can be apply only with ActiveRecord:

use paulzi\jsonBehavior\JsonValidator;

class Item extends \yii\db\ActiveRecord
{
    public function rules() {
        return [
            [['params'], JsonValidator::className(), 'merge' => true],
        ];
    }
}

JsonField

You can use JsonField class for other models:

class Item
{
    public $params;
    
    public function __constructor()
    {
        $this->params = new JsonField();
    }
}

// ...

$item = new Item();
$item->params['one'] = 1;
var_dump((string)$item->params); // {"one":1}

How To

Usage isAttributeChanged() and getDirtyAttributes()

Yii2 does not provide the ability to inject code to check attribute dirty.

If you need to use methods isAttributeChanged() or getDirtyAttributes(), you can override them in model:

/**
 * @inheritdoc
 */
public function isAttributeChanged($name, $identical = true)
{
    if ($this->$name instanceof JsonField) {
        return (string)$this->$name !== $this->getOldAttribute($name);
    } else {
        return parent::isAttributeChanged($name, $identical);
    }
}

/**
 * @inheritdoc
 */
public function getDirtyAttributes($names = null)
{
    $result = [];
    $data = parent::getDirtyAttributes($names);
    foreach ($data as $name => $value) {
        if ($value instanceof JsonField) {
            if ((string)$value !== $this->getOldAttribute($name)) {
                $result[$name] = $value;
            }
        } else {
            $result[$name] = $value;
        }
    }
    return $result;
}
