min version:

If you want to add within a PHP method a particular log entry to a Caselog attribute. this can be done in PHP.

  1. Get() on an AttributeCaselog returns an ormCaselog object
  2. Use the ormCaselog public method AddLogEntry()
  3. Set back the log on the current object
  4. Ensure that this object change is made persistent with $this→DBUpdate(). In this Prefill example, it's not needed.
public function PrefillTransitionForm(&$aContextParam)
    switch ($aContextParam['stimulus']) {
        case 'ev_resolve':
             // Get the log, the returned object is an ormCaselog, so an object
             $oLog = $this->Get('public_log');
             // Add an entry to the log, with the text, the label of the person who created that entry, the optional id of the User
             $oLog->AddLogEntry('The text to add to the log<br>With html tag if needed', 'A text description of the User who added this entry', :current_user_id);
             // Set back that modified Log on the current UserRequest
             $this->Set('public_log', $oLog);
