Extended class triggering forbidden functions


Since my custom filter was triggering an error ("$in requires an array"), i created a new PHP file containing a "CustomFilterApi" class that extends FilterApi class, so then i was able to change some FilterApi's functions and bypass my filter's error. But when i extend the FilterApi class, it triggers some forbidden functions.

There's my CustomFilterApi code:

class CustomFilterApi extends FilterApi
	protected static function addFilters(array $filterDefs, SugarQuery_Builder_Where $where, SugarQuery $q)
        foreach ($filterDefs as $filterDef) {
            if (!is_array($filterDef)) {
				$filterDef = array($filterDef);
                /*throw new SugarApiExceptionInvalidParameter(
                        'Did not recognize the definition: %s',
                        print_r($filterDef, true)
            foreach ($filterDef as $field => $filter) {
                parent::addFilter($field, $filter, $where, $q);

  • I would not recommend circumventing an error message like that, clearly it is trying to tell you that your filter is not going to work. Removing the error message would just lead to the execution of code that won't work.

    The image from your error is too small to read, and too fuzzy when zoomed in. But I would say you need to figure out why your custom filter is not defined correctly. What is it that you are trying to achineve?
