Detailed Description

EOSIO Multi-Index API provides a C++ interface to the EOSIO database. It is patterned after Boost Multi Index Container. EOSIO Multi-Index table requires exactly a uint64_t primary key. For the table to be able to retrieve the primary key, the object stored inside the table is required to have a const member function called primary_key() that returns uint64_t. EOSIO Multi-Index table also supports up to 16 secondary indices. The type of the secondary indices could be any of:

  • uint64_t
  • uint128_t
  • double
  • long double
  • eosio::checksum256

Template parameters:

  • TableName - name of the table
  • T - type of the data stored inside the table
  • Indices - secondary indices for the table, up to 16 indices is supported here

Example:

#include <eosiolib/eosio.hpp>
using namespace eosio;
class mycontract: contract {
  struct record {
    uint64_t    primary;
    uint64_t    secondary_1;
    uint128_t   secondary_2;
    checksum256 secondary_3;
    double      secondary_4;
    long double secondary_5;
    uint64_t primary_key() const { return primary; }
    uint64_t get_secondary_1() const { return secondary_1; }
    uint128_t get_secondary_2() const { return secondary_2; }
    checksum256 get_secondary_3() const { return secondary_3; }
    double get_secondary_4() const { return secondary_4; }
    long double get_secondary_5() const { return secondary_5; }
  };
  public:
    mycontract(name receiver, name code, datastream<const char*> ds):contract(receiver, code, ds){}
    void myaction() {
      auto code = _self;
      auto scope = _self;
      multi_index<"mytable"_n, record,
        indexed_by< "bysecondary1"_n, const_mem_fun<record, uint64_t, &record::get_secondary_1> >,
        indexed_by< "bysecondary2"_n, const_mem_fun<record, uint128_t, &record::get_secondary_2> >,
        indexed_by< "bysecondary3"_n, const_mem_fun<record, checksum256, &record::get_secondary_3> >,

Functions Documentation

function multi_index

multiindex::multi_index (
    name code,
    uint64_t scope
)

load_object_by_primary_iterator

Constructs an instance of a Multi-Index table.

Parameters:

  • code - Account that owns table
  • scope - Scope identifier within the code hierarchy

Precondition:

code and scope member properties are initialized

Post

each secondary index table initialized

Post

Secondary indices are updated to refer to the newly added object. If the secondary index tables do not exist, they are created.

Post

The payer is charged for the storage usage of the new object and, if the table (and secondary index tables) must be created, for the overhead of the table creation.

Notes The ` template has template parameters<`, where:

  • TableName is the name of the table, maximum 12 characters long, characters in the name from the set of lowercase letters, digits 1 to 5, and the "." (period) character and is converted to a eosio::raw - which wraps uint64_t;
  • T is the object type (i.e., row definition);
  • Indices is a list of up to 16 secondary indices.
  • Each must be a default constructable class or struct
  • Each must have a function call operator that takes a const reference to the table object type and returns either a secondary key type or a reference to a secondary key type
  • It is recommended to use the eosio::const_mem_fun template, which is a type alias to the boost::multi_index::const_mem_fun. See the documentation for the Boost const_mem_fun key extractor for more details.

#include <eosiolib/eosio.hpp>

function available_primary_key

uint64_t multiindex::available_primary_key () const

Returns an available primary key.

Returns:

An available (unused) primary key value.

Notes: Intended to be used in tables in which the primary keys of the table are strictly intended to be auto-incrementing, and thus will never be set to custom values by the contract. Violating this expectation could result in the table appearing to be full due to inability to allocate an available primary key. Ideally this method would only be used to determine the appropriate primary key to use within new objects added to a table in which the primary keys of the table are strictly intended from the beginning to be autoincrementing and thus will not ever be set to custom arbitrary values by the contract. Violating this agreement could result in the table appearing full when in reality there is plenty of space left. Example:

// This assumes the code from the constructor example. Replace myaction() {...}

    void myaction() {
      address_index addresses(_self, _self.value);  // code, scope
      // add to table, first argument is account to bill for storage
      addresses.emplace(payer, [&](auto& address) {
        address.key = addresses.available_primary_key();
        address.first_name = "Daniel";
        address.last_name = "Larimer";
        address.street = "1 EOS Way";

If payer is the same as the existing payer, payer only pays for the usage difference between existing and updated object (and is refunded if this difference is negative).

Post

If payer is different from the existing payer, the existing payer is refunded for the storage usage of the existing object.

Exceptions: If called with an invalid precondition, execution is aborted. Example:

// This assumes the code from the constructor example. Replace myaction() {...}

    void myaction() {
      // create reference to address_index  - see emplace example
      // add dan account to table           - see emplace example

      auto itr = addresses.find("dan"_n);
      eosio::check(itr != addresses.end(), "Address for account not found");
      addresses.modify( itr, account payer, [&]( auto& address ) {
        address.city = "San Luis Obispo";
        address.state = "CA";
      });
    }

function modify

void multiindex::modify (
    const T & obj,
    name payer,
    Lambda && updater
)

Modifies an existing object in a table.

Parameters:

  • obj - a reference to the object to be updated
  • payer - account name of the payer for the Storage usage of the updated row
  • updater - lambda function that updates the target object

Precondition:

obj is an existing object in the table

Precondition:

payer is a valid account that is authorized to execute the action and be billed for storage usage.

Post

The modified object is serialized, then replaces the existing object in the table.

Post

Secondary indices are updated; the primary key of the updated object is not changed.

function get

const T & multiindex::get (
    uint64_t primary,
    const char * error_msg = "unable to find key"
) const

Retrieves an existing object from a table using its primary key.

Parameters:

  • primary - Primary key value of the object

Returns:

A constant reference to the object containing the specified primary key.

Exception - No object matches the given key Example:

// This assumes the code from the constructor example. Replace myaction() {...}

    void myaction() {
      // create reference to address_index  - see emplace example
      // add dan account to table           - see emplace example

      auto user = addresses.get("dan"_n);
      eosio::check(user.first_name == "Daniel", "Couldn't get him.");
    }
}
EOSIO_DISPATCH( addressbook, (myaction) )

function find

const_iterator multiindex::find (
    uint64_t primary
) const

Search for an existing object in a table using its primary key.

Parameters:

  • primary - Primary key value of the object

Returns:

An iterator to the found object which has a primary key equal to primary OR the end iterator of the referenced table if an object with primary key primary is not found.

Example:

// This assumes the code from the constructor example. Replace myaction() {...}

    void myaction() {
      // create reference to address_index  - see emplace example
      // add dan account to table           - see emplace example

      auto itr = addresses.find("dan"_n);
      eosio::check(itr != addresses.end(), "Couldn't get him.");
    }
}

function require_find

const_iterator multiindex::require_find (
    uint64_t primary,
    const char * error_msg = "unable to find key"
) const

Search for an existing object in a table using its primary key.

Parameters:

  • primary - Primary key value of the object
  • error_msg - error message if an object with primary key primary is not found.

Returns:

An iterator to the found object which has a primary key equal to primary OR throws an exception if an object with primary key primary is not found.

function erase

const_iterator multiindex::erase (
    const_iterator itr
)

Remove an existing object from a table using its primary key.

Parameters:

  • itr - An iterator pointing to the object to be removed

Precondition:

itr points to an existing element

Post

The object is removed from the table and all associated storage is reclaimed.

Post

Secondary indices associated with the table are updated.

Post

The existing payer for storage usage of the object is refunded for the table and secondary indices usage of the removed object, and if the table and indices are removed, for the associated overhead.

Returns:

For the signature with ``, returns a pointer to the object following the removed object.

Exceptions: The object to be removed is not in the table. The action is not authorized to modify the table. The given iterator is invalid. Example:

// This assumes the code from the constructor example. Replace myaction() {...}

    void myaction() {
      // create reference to address_index  - see emplace example
      // add dan account to table           - see emplace example

      auto itr = addresses.find("dan"_n);
      eosio::check(itr != addresses.end(), "Address for account not found");
      addresses.erase( itr );
      eosio::check(itr != addresses.end(), "Everting lock arf, Address not erased properly");
    }
}
