NAME

       Catalyst::Action - Catalyst Action

SYNOPSIS

           <form action="[%c.uri_for(c.action)%]">

           $c->forward( $action->private_path );

DESCRIPTION

       This class represents a Catalyst Action. You can access the object for the currently
       dispatched action via $c->action. See the Catalyst::Dispatcher for more information on how
       actions are dispatched. Actions are defined in Catalyst::Controller subclasses.

METHODS

   attributes
       The sub attributes that are set for this action, like Local, Path, Private and so on. This
       determines how the action is dispatched to.

   class
       Returns the name of the component where this action is defined.  Derived by calling the
       catalyst_component_name method on each component.

   code
       Returns a code reference to this action.

   dispatch( $c )
       Dispatch this action against a context.

   execute( $controller, $c, @args )
       Execute this action's coderef against a given controller with a given context and
       arguments

   match( $c )
       Check Args attribute, and makes sure number of args matches the setting.  Always returns
       true if Args is omitted.

   match_captures ($c, $captures)
       Can be implemented by action class and action role authors. If the method exists, then it
       will be called with the request context and an array reference of the captures for this
       action.

       Returning true from this method causes the chain match to continue, returning makes the
       chain not match (and alternate, less preferred chains will be attempted).

   match_captures_constraints ($c, \@captures);
       Does the \@captures given match any constraints (if any constraints exist).  Returns true
       if you ask but there are no constraints.

   match_args($c, $args)
       Does the Args match or not?

   resolve_type_constraint
       Tries to find a type constraint if you have on on a type constrained method.

   compare
       Compares 2 actions based on the value of the "Args" attribute, with no "Args" having the
       highest precedence.

   namespace
       Returns the private namespace this action lives in.

   reverse
       Returns the private path for this action.

   private_path
       Returns absolute private path for this action. Unlike "reverse", the "private_path" of an
       action is always suitable for passing to "forward".

   name
       Returns the sub name of this action.

   number_of_args
       Returns the number of args this action expects. This is 0 if the action doesn't take any
       arguments and undef if it will take any number of arguments.

   normalized_arg_number
       The number of arguments (starting with zero) that the current action defines, or undefined
       if there is not defined number of args (which is later treated as, " as many arguments as
       you like").

   comparable_arg_number
       For the purposes of comparison we normalize 'number_of_args' so that if it is undef we
       mean ~0 (as many args are we can think of).

   number_of_captures
       Returns the number of captures this action expects for Chained actions.

   list_extra_info
       A HashRef of key-values that an action can provide to a debugging screen

   scheme
       Any defined scheme for the action

   meta
       Provided by Moose.
