Net::LDAP::Control::VLV(3)     User Contributed Perl Documentation     Net::LDAP::Control::VLV(3)

NAME
       Net::LDAP::Control::VLV - LDAPv3 Virtual List View control object

SYNOPSIS
	use Net::LDAP;
	use Net::LDAP::Control::VLV;
	use Net::LDAP::Constant qw( LDAP_CONTROL_VLVRESPONSE );

	$ldap = Net::LDAP->new( "ldap.mydomain.eg" );

	# Get the first 20 entries
	$vlv  = Net::LDAP::Control::VLV->new(
		  before  => 0,        # No entries from before target entry
		  after   => 19,       # 19 entries after target entry
		  content => 0,        # List size unknown
		  offset  => 1,        # Target entry is the first
		);
	$sort = Net::LDAP::Control::Sort->new( order => 'cn' );

	@args = ( base	   => "o=Ace Industry, c=us",
		  scope    => "subtree",
		  filter   => "(objectClass=inetOrgPerson)",
		  callback => \&process_entry, # Call this sub for each entry
		  control  => [ $vlv, $sort ],
	);

	$mesg = $ldap->search( @args );

	# Get VLV response control
	($resp)  = $mesg->control( LDAP_CONTROL_VLVRESPONSE )  or die;
	$vlv->response( $resp );

	# Set the control to get the last 20 entries
	$vlv->end;

	$mesg = $ldap->search( @args );

	# Get VLV response control
	($resp)  = $mesg->control( LDAP_CONTROL_VLVRESPONSE )  or die;
	$vlv->response( $resp );

	# Now get the previous page
	$vlv->scroll_page( -1 );

	$mesg = $ldap->search( @args );

	# Get VLV response control
	($resp)  = $mesg->control( LDAP_CONTROL_VLVRESPONSE )  or die;
	$vlv->response( $resp );

	# Now page with first entry starting with "B" in the middle
	$vlv->before(9);       # Change page to show 9 before
	$vlv->after(10);       # Change page to show 10 after
	$vlv->assert("B");     # assert "B"

	$mesg = $ldap->search( @args );

DESCRIPTION
       "Net::LDAP::Control::VLV" provides an interface for the creation and manipulation of
       objects that represent the Virtual List View as described by
       draft-ietf-ldapext-ldapv3-vlv-09.txt.

       When using a Virtual List View control in a search, it must be accompanied by a sort
       control. See Net::LDAP::Control::Sort

CONSTRUCTOR ARGUMENTS
       In addition to the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control the following are
       provided.

       after
	   Set the number of entries the server should return from the list after the target
	   entry.

       assert
	   Set the assertion value user to locate the target entry. This value should be a legal
	   value to compare with the first attribute in the sort control that is passed with the
	   VLV control. The target entry is the first entry in the list which is greater than or
	   equal the assert value.

       before
	   Set the number of entries the server should return from the list before the target
	   entry.

       content
	   Set the number of entries in the list. On the first search this value should be set to
	   zero. On subsequent searches it should be set to the length of the list, as returned
	   by the server in the VLVResponse control.

       context
	   Set the context identifier.	On the first search this value should be set to zero. On
	   subsequent searches it should be set to the context value returned by the server in
	   the VLVResponse control.

       offset
	   Set the offset of the target entry.

   METHODS
       As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is also available as
       a method on the object which will return the current value for the attribute if called
       without an argument, and set a new value for the attribute if called with an argument.

       The "offset" and "assert" attributes are mutually exclusive. Setting one or the other will
       cause previous values set by the other to be forgotten. The "content" attribute is also
       associated with the "offset" attribute, so setting "assert" will cause any "content" value
       to be forgotten.

       end Set the target entry to the end of the list. This method will change the "before" and
	   "after" attributes so that the target entry is the last in the page.

       response VLV_RESPONSE
	   Set the attributes in the control as per VLV_RESPONSE. VLV_RESPONSE should be a
	   control of type Net::LDAP::Control::VLVResponse returned from the server. "response"
	   will populate the "context", "offset" and "content" attibutes of the control with the
	   values from VLV_RESPONSE. Because this sets the "offset" attribute, any previous
	   setting of the "assert" attribute will be forgotten.

       scroll NUM
	   Move the target entry by NUM entries. A positive NUM will move the target entry
	   towards the end of the list and a negative NUM will move the target entry towards the
	   start of the list. Returns the index of the new target entry, or "undef" if the
	   current target is identified by an assertion.

	   "scroll" may change the "before" and "after" attributes if the scroll value would
	   cause the page to go off either end of the list. But the page size will be maintained.

       scroll_page NUM
	   Scroll by NUM pages. This method simple calculates the current page size and calls
	   "scroll" with "NUM * $page_size"

       start
	   Set the target entry to the start of the list. This method will change the "before"
	   and "after" attributes to the the target entry is the first entry in the page.
