Event is the base class for all event classes.

It encapsulates the parameters associated with an event. The $sender property describes who raises the event. And the $handled property indicates if the event is handled. If an event handler sets $handled to be true, the rest of the uninvoked handlers will no longer be called to handle the event.

Additionally, when attaching an event handler, extra data may be passed and be available via the $data property when the event handler is invoked.

For more details and usage information on Event, see the guide article on events.

Property Details

$data public property

The data that is passed to yii\base\Component::on() when attaching an event handler. Note that this varies according to which event handler is currently executing.

public mixed $data null
$handled public property

Whether the event is handled. Defaults to false. When a handler sets this to be true, the event processing will stop and ignore the rest of the uninvoked event handlers.

public boolean $handled false
$name public property

The event name. This property is set by yii\base\Component::trigger() and trigger(). Event handlers may use this property to check what event it is handling.

public string $name null
$sender public property

The sender of this event. If not set, this property will be set as the object whose trigger() method is called. This property may also be a null when this event is a class-level event which is triggered in a static context.

public object $sender null

Method Details

hasHandlers() public static method

Returns a value indicating whether there is any handler attached to the specified class-level event.

Note that this method will also check all parent classes to see if there is any handler attached to the named event.

public static boolean hasHandlers ( $class, $name )
$class string|object

The object or the fully qualified class name specifying the class-level event.

$name string

The event name.

return boolean

Whether there is any handler attached to the event.

off() public static method

Detaches an event handler from a class-level event.

This method is the opposite of on().

See also on().

public static boolean off ( $class, $name, $handler null )
$class string

The fully qualified class name from which the event handler needs to be detached.

$name string

The event name.

$handler callable

The event handler to be removed. If it is null, all handlers attached to the named event will be removed.

return boolean

Whether a handler is found and detached.

offAll() public static method (available since version 2.0.10)

Detaches all registered class-level event handlers.

See also:

public static void offAll ( )
on() public static method

Attaches an event handler to a class-level event.

When a class-level event is triggered, event handlers attached to that class and all parent classes will be invoked.

For example, the following code attaches an event handler to ActiveRecord's afterInsert event:

Event::on(ActiveRecord::className(), ActiveRecord::EVENT_AFTER_INSERT, function ($event) {
    Yii::trace(get_class($event->sender) . ' is inserted.');
});

The handler will be invoked for EVERY successful ActiveRecord insertion.

For more details about how to declare an event handler, please refer to yii\base\Component::on().

See also off().

public static void on ( $class, $name, $handler, $data null, $append true )
$class string

The fully qualified class name to which the event handler needs to attach.

$name string

The event name.

$handler callable

The event handler.

$data mixed

The data to be passed to the event handler when the event is triggered. When the event handler is invoked, this data can be accessed via yii\base\Event::$data.

$append boolean

Whether to append new event handler to the end of the existing handler list. If false, the new handler will be inserted at the beginning of the existing handler list.

trigger() public static method

Triggers a class-level event.

This method will cause invocation of event handlers that are attached to the named event for the specified class and all its parent classes.

public static void trigger ( $class, $name, $event null )
$class string|object

The object or the fully qualified class name specifying the class-level event.

$name string

The event name.

$event yii\base\Event

The event parameter. If not set, a default yii\base\Event object will be created.
