Drupal example source code file (UPGRADE.txt)

This example Drupal source code file (UPGRADE.txt) is included in the DevDaily.com "Drupal Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you "Learn Drupal by Example".

The UPGRADE.txt Drupal example source code

Upgrading from ctools-6.x-1.x to ctools-7.x-2.x:

  - Remove ctools_ajax_associate_url_to_element as it shouldn't be necessary
    with the new AJAX api's in Drupal core.

  - All calls to the ctools_ajax_command_prepend() should be replace with 
    the core function ajax_command_prepend();
    This is also the case for append, insert, after, before, replace, html, 
    and remove commands. 
    Each of these commands have been incorporated into the 
    Drupal.ajax.prototype.commands.insert   
    function with a corresponding parameter specifying which method to use.

  - All calls to ctools_ajax_render() should be replaced with calls to core
    ajax_render(). Note that ctools_ajax_render() printed the json object and
    exited, ajax_render() gives you this responsibility. 

    ctools_ajax_render() 

    becomes

    print ajax_render();
    exit;

  - All calls to ctools_static*() should be replaced with corresponding calls
    to drupal_static*().

  - All calls to ctools_css_add_css should be replaced with calls to
    drupal_add_css(). Note that the arguments to drupal_add_css() have changed.

  - All wizard form builder functions must now return a form array().

  - ctools_build_form is very close to being removed.  In anticipation of this, 
    all $form_state['wrapper callback']s must now be 
    $form_state['wrapper_callback']. In addition to this $form_state['args'] 
    must now be $form_state['build_info']['args'].

    NOTE: Previously checking to see if the return from ctools_build_form()
    is empty would be enough to see if the form was submitted. This is no
    longer true. Please check for $form_state['executed']. If using a wizard
    check for $form_state['complete'].

  - Plugin types now must be explicitly registered via a registration hook,
    hook_ctools_plugin_type(); info once provided in magically-named functions
    (e.g., ctools_ctools_plugin_content_types() was the old function to
    provide plugin type info for ctools' content_type plugins) now must be
    provided in that global hook. See http://drupal.org/node/910538 for more
    details.

  - Plugins that use 'theme arguments' now use 'theme variables' instead.

  - Context, argument and relationship plugins now use 'add form' and/or
    'edit form' rather than 'settings form'. These plugins now support 
    form wizards just like content plugins. These forms now all take
    $form, &$form_state as arguments, and the configuration for the plugin
    can be found in $form_state['conf'].

    For all these forms, the submit handler MUST put appropriate data in
    $form_state['conf']. Data will no longer be stored automatically.

    For all of these forms, the separate settings #trees in the form are now
    gone, so form ids may be adjusted. Also, these are now all real forms
    using CTools form wizard instead of fake subforms as previously.
