"""MessageProperty -- a property storing ProtoRPC Message objects.

Basic usage:

Let's assume you have a protorpc.messages.Message subclass, like this:

  from protorpc import messages

  class Note(messages.Message):
    text = messages.StringField(1, required=True)
    when = messages.IntegerField(2)

Now suppose you'd like to store Notes in the datastore.  Create a
model class to hold your notes, as follows:

  from google.appengine.ext import ndb
  from google.appengine.ext.ndb import msgprop

  class NoteStore(ndb.Model):
    note = msgprop.MessageProperty(Note)
    name = ndb.StringProperty()

(The class name, 'NoteStore', and the property name, 'note', are yours
to choose.)

To store, a Note message, create a NoteStore entity and write it:

  ns = NoteStore(note=my_note, name='foo')
  key = ns.put()

To later retrieve the Note, read the NoteStore entity back:

  ns = key.get()
  my_note = ns.note

The MessageProperty class has many of the usual Property options:
  - name: optional datastore name
  - repeated: if True, stores a list of message values
  - required: if True, the message value cannot be None
  - default: optional default message value to store
  - choices: optional list of allowed choices (must all be messages)
  - validator: optional function to validate message values
  - verbose_name: optional long name for the property

However, MessageProperty does not support the 'indexed' option.
Instead, you can specify a list of field names that will be indexed,
like this:

  class MyStore(ndb.Model):
    author = ndb.StringProperty()
    note = msgprop.MessageProperty(Note, indexed_fields=['text', 'when'])

Now you can query for field values, like this:

  stores = MyStore.query(MyStore.note.when >= 123).fetch()

Note the similarity with StructuredProperty -- in fact,
MessageProperty inherits from StructuredProperty.  The main difference
is that StructuredProperty takes an Model subclass instead of a
protorpc.messages.Message subclass; and StructuredProperty doesn't
index any fields by default.

It works for nested messages (using MessageField) as well:

  class Notes(messages.Message):
    notes = messages.MessageField(Note, 1, repeated=True)

  class MyNotesStore(ndb.Model):
    author = ndb.StringProperty()
    foo = msgprop.MessageProperty(Notes,
                                  indexed_fields=['notes.text, 'notes.when'])

And given this value for indexed_fields, in this example you can also
query for subfields:

  stores = MyNoteStore.query( < 123).fetch()

A final option for MessageProperty is 'protocol'.  This lets you
specify how the message object is serialized to the datastore.  The
values are protocol names as used by protorpc.remote.Protocols class.
Supported protocol names are 'protobuf' and 'protojson'; the default
is 'protobuf'.  (In the future this will use the global protocols
registry that is being added to protorpc; then any registered protocol
name will be acceptable.)

There is also an EnumProperty, which can be used to store a
messages.Enum value without wrapping it in a Message object.  Example:

  class Color(messages.Enum):
    RED = 620
    GREEN = 495
    BLUE = 450

  class Part(ndb.Model):
    name = ndb.StringProperty()
    color = msgprop.EnumProperty(Color, required=True)

  p1 = Part(name='foo', color=Color.RED)
  key1 = p1.put()
  p2 = key1.get()
  print, p2.color  # prints "foo RED"

The EnumProperty stores the value as an integer; in fact, EnumProperty
is a subclass of IntegerProperty.  This is handy to know, since it
implies that you can rename your enum values without having to modify
already-stored entities, but you cannot renumber them.

The EnumProperty supports the following standard options:
  - name
  - indexed
  - repeated
  - required
  - default
  - choices
  - validator
  - verbose_name
