       Jifty::Action::Record -- An action tied to a record in the database.


       Represents a web-based action that is a create, update, or delete of a Jifty::Record
       object.  This automatically populates the arguments method of Jifty::Action so that you
       don't need to bother.

       To actually use this class, you probably want to inherit from one of
       Jifty::Action::Record::Create, Jifty::Action::Record::Update, or
       Jifty::Action::Record::Delete.  You may need to override the "record_class" method, if
       Jifty cannot determine the record class of this action.


       Access to the underlying Jifty::Record object for this action is through the "record"

       This method can either be overridden to return a string specifying the name of the record
       class, or the name of the class can be passed to the constructor.

       If the action returns true for "report_detailed_message", report the message returned by
       the model classes as the resulting message.  For Update actions, Put the per-field message
       in "detailed_messages" field of action result content.  The default is false.

       Construct a new "Jifty::Action::Record" (as mentioned in Jifty::Action, this should only
       be called by "framework->new_action".  The "record" value, if provided in the PARAMHASH,
       will be used to load the "record"; otherwise, the primary keys will be loaded from the
       action's argument values, and the "record" loaded from those primary keys.

       Overrides the "arguments" in Jifty::Action method, to automatically provide a form field
       for every writable attribute of the underlying "record".

       This also creates built-in validation and autocompletion methods (validate_$fieldname and
       autocomplete_$fieldname) for action fields that are defined "validate" or "autocomplete".
       These methods can be overridden in any Action which inherits from this class.

       Additionally, if our model class defines canonicalize_, validate_, or autocomplete_ FIELD,
       generate appropriate an appropriate canonicalizer, validator, or autocompleter that will
       call that method with the value to be validated, canonicalized, or autocompleted.

       "validate_FIELD" should return a (success boolean, message) list.

       "autocomplete_FIELD" should return a the same kind of list as

       "canonicalized_FIELD" should return the canonicalized value.

       Returns the list of columns objects on the object that the action can update. This
       defaults to all of the "containers" or the non-"private", non-"virtual" and non-"serial"
       columns of the object.

       Returns the list of the "possible_columns"' names.

       Usually at the end names are required, however for subclassing column objects are better,
       or this method in a subclass turns out to be "map to column" - "filter" - "map to name"

       Throws an error unless it is overridden; use Jifty::Action::Record::Create, ::Update, or


       Jifty::Action, Jifty::Record, Jifty::DBI::Record, Jifty::Action::Record::Create,
       Jifty::Action::Record::Update, Jifty::Action::Record::Delete
