Understanding action links

Action links can be used to apply an action to an item or even a selection of items. Use them to extend actions for existing items or create a toolbox for your custom items available in your application.

The API

Action

Creating a new action is pretty straight forward. Just create a new Action and give it a unique name (internally we use slashes to indicate a module hierarchy, so names are inherently unique) and provide a few options.

 
  var action = new Action('unique/name/of/my/action', {
    //some options go in here
  });

Available options

In the options parameter you can provide the actual logic for the action. You can provide callbacks, requirements and more.

  • id
    • a unique identifier (String)
  • requires (optional)
    • (String) - a String containing one or more special keywords that are required for this action to be active
      • toplevel
      • one
      • some
      • delete
    • (Function) - a function that returns a Boolean value and gets a Baton object as parameter
  • multiple (optional)
    • (Function) - a callback function, called when the action is triggered with a list of elements
  • action (optional)
    • (Function) - a callback function, called when the action is triggered for one element
