Using custom properties

When adding a file to the medialibrary you can pass an array with custom properties:

$mediaItem = $newsItem
    ->withCustomProperties(['primaryColor' => 'red'])

There are some methods to work with custom properties:

$mediaItem->hasCustomProperty('primaryColor'); // returns true
$mediaItem->getCustomProperty('primaryColor'); // returns 'red'

$mediaItem->hasCustomProperty('does not exist'); // returns false
$mediaItem->getCustomProperty('does not exist'); // returns null

$mediaItem->setCustomProperty('name', 'value'); // adds a new custom propery
$mediaItem->forgetCustomProperty('name'); // removes a custom propery

You can also specify a default value when retrieving a custom property.

$mediaItem->getCustomProperty('isPublic', false);

If you’re dealing with nested custom properties, you can use dot notation.

$mediaItem = $newsItem
        'group' => ['primaryColor' => 'red']

$mediaItem->hasCustomProperty('group.primaryColor'); // returns true
$mediaItem->getCustomProperty('group.primaryColor'); // returns 'red'

$mediaItem->hasCustomProperty('nested.does-not-exist'); // returns false
$mediaItem->getCustomProperty('nested.does-not-exist'); // returns null
