Detailed Description

A class that represents base parametersType in quantitation.xml.

Holds a list of parameters.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Default constructor.

Assigns reasonable default values to all internal members.

Copying constructor.

Parameters:
srcanother instance of this class to copy the content from.

Member Function Documentation

void appendParameter ( const ms_quant_parameter item )

Adds a new parameter at the end of the list.

Parameters:
iteman instance of parameter object to copy content from.
void copyFrom ( const ms_quant_parameters right )

Copies all content from another instance.

Parameters:
rightanother instance of this class to copy the content from.
void defaultValues (  )

Call this member if you want to start again.

All internal values are reset to their defaults, as if the object had been freshly created with the default constructor.

Reimplemented in ms_quant_average, ms_quant_integration, ms_quant_multiplex, ms_quant_normalisation, ms_quant_outliers, ms_quant_precursor, ms_quant_quality, ms_quant_replicate, and ms_quant_reporter.

bool deleteParameterByName ( const char *  name )

Remove a parameter from the list in memory by its unique name.

Parameters:
namename of the parameter for deletion.
Returns:
TRUE if the parameter has been found and successfully deleted and FALSE otherwise.
bool deleteParameterByNumber ( const int  idx )

Remove a parameter from the list in memory by its index.

Parameters:
idxnumber of the parameter for deletion from 0 to (getNumberOfParameters() - 1).
Returns:
TRUE if the parameter has been found and successfully deleted and FALSE otherwise.
int getNumberOfParameters (  ) const

Returns the number of parameters held.

Returns:
total number of parameters in the list.
const ms_quant_parameter * getParameterByName ( const char *  name ) const

Returns a parameter object by its name or a null value in case of not found.

Parameters:
namename of the parameter to find.
Returns:
a read-only pointer to a parameter object. See Maintaining object references: two rules of thumb.
const ms_quant_parameter * getParameterByNumber ( const int  idx ) const

Returns a parameter object by its number.

Parameters:
idxnumber of the parameter from 0 to (getNumberOfParameters() - 1).
Returns:
a read-only pointer to a parameter object. See Maintaining object references: two rules of thumb.
std::string getParameterSchemaType (  ) const

Obtain a symbolic name for the parameter element schema type.

The obtained type name can be used to get a corresponding type description object from ms_xml_schema.

Returns:
symbolic type name for the element.
std::string getSchemaType (  ) const [virtual]

Returns name of the schema type that can be used to validate this element.

Additional information about the current object can be retrieved from the associated XML schema file. Every element in an XML document is defined with a named type, which you can use to find out what kind of limits (numerical or otherwise) are defined for values of that type.

See also:
validateShallow(), validateDeep()
Returns:
a symbolic fully qualified type name (for example, "mqm:nameType").

Reimplemented in ms_quant_average, ms_quant_integration, ms_quant_multiplex, ms_quant_normalisation, ms_quant_outliers, ms_quant_precursor, ms_quant_quality, ms_quant_replicate, and ms_quant_reporter.

ms_quant_parameters & operator= ( const ms_quant_parameters right )

C++ style assignment operator.

Parameters:
rightanother instance of this class to copy the content from.
Returns:
reference to the current object
bool updateParameterByName ( const char *  name,
const ms_quant_parameter param 
)

Update the information for a specific parameter refering to it by its unique name.

Parameters:
namename of the parameter for updating.
paraman object to copy the content from.
Returns:
TRUE if the parameter has been found and successfully updated and FALSE otherwise.
bool updateParameterByNumber ( const int  idx,
const ms_quant_parameter param 
)

Update the information for a specific parameter refering to it by its index.

Parameters:
idxnumber of the parameter for updating from 0 to (getNumberOfParameters() - 1).
paraman object to copy the content from.
Returns:
TRUE if the parameter has been found and successfully updated and FALSE otherwise.
std::string validateDeep ( const ms_xml_schema *  pSchemaFileObj ) const [virtual]

Performs validation of all child elements in addition to 'shallow' validation.

The current object can be checked against an XML schema. When using this method all possible checks are performed. However, this is not a substitute for the schema: some schema-defined constraint are not applied (unique fields, foreign keys etc.).

In order to make sure that current object is free from all syntax errors validate it as a part of the whole document.

See also:
validateShallow(), getSchemaType()
Parameters:
pSchemaFileObja valid schema object instance to validate against.
Returns:
user-friendly description of any errors found during validation or an empty string if no errors detected.

Reimplemented in ms_quant_average, ms_quant_integration, ms_quant_multiplex, ms_quant_normalisation, ms_quant_outliers, ms_quant_precursor, ms_quant_quality, ms_quant_replicate, and ms_quant_reporter.

std::string validateShallow ( const ms_xml_schema *  pSchemaFileObj ) const [virtual]

Performs simple validation of the top-level elements only.

The current object can be checked against some basic constraints in a schema without looking at children element types. When using this method only the current object and children derived from standard types (for example, restrictions with enumerations) are checked. For more thorough validation, use validateDeep().

See also:
getSchemaType()
Parameters:
pSchemaFileObja valid schema object instance to validate against.
Returns:
user-friendly description of any errors found during validation or an empty string if no errors detected.

Reimplemented in ms_quant_average, ms_quant_integration, ms_quant_multiplex, ms_quant_normalisation, ms_quant_outliers, ms_quant_precursor, ms_quant_quality, ms_quant_replicate, and ms_quant_reporter.
