function tripal_get_cv

2.x tripal_cv.api.inc tripal_get_cv($identifiers, $options = array())

Retrieves a chado controlled vocabulary variable

Parameters

$identifier: An array with the key stating what the identifier is. Supported keys (only on of the following unique keys is required):

  • cv_id: the chado cv.cv_id primary key
  • name: the chado cv.name field (assume unique)

$options: An array of options. Supported keys include:

  • Any keys supported by chado_generate_var(). See that function definition for additional details.

NOTE: the $identifier parameter can really be any array similar to $values passed into chado_select_record(). It should fully specify the cv record to be returned.

Return value

If unique values were passed in as an identifier then an object describing the cv will be returned (will be a chado variable from chado_generate_var()). Otherwise, FALSE will be returned.
