Detailed Description

template<typename ContextType>
class CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext< ContextType >

Function like object hosting a list of FunctionPointerWithContext.

Upon call, each FunctionPointerWithContext instance present in the object will be called in sequence with the initial parameters.

It can be seen as a variation of the observer pattern this object being the observable, instances of the FunctionPointerWithContext being the observable and the notify/update operation being the function call.

Example:

void first(void *context) {
printf("'first' function.\n");
}
void second(void *context) {
printf("'second' function.\n");
}
class Test {
public:
void f(void *context) {
printf("A::f (class member).\n");
}
};
int main() {
Test test;
chain.add(second);
chain.add_front(first);
chain.add(&test, &Test::f);
// will print:
// 'second' function.
// 'first' function.
// A::f (class member).
chain.call();
}
Note
memory allocation is used to add new function like objects into the call chain.
Template Parameters
ContextTypeType of the parameter accepted by the callbacks hosted in the object.

Member Function Documentation

pFunctionPointerWithContext_t add ( void(*)(ContextType context)  function)

Add a function pointer at the front of the chain.

Parameters
[in]functionA pointer to a void function.
Returns
The FunctionPointerWithContext object created from function.

Definition at line 114 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

pFunctionPointerWithContext_t add ( T *  tptr,
void(T::*)(ContextType context)  mptr 
)

Add a member function bound to its instance at the front of the chain.

Parameters
[in]tptrPointer to the object to call the member function on.
[in]mptrPointer to the member function to be called.
Returns
The FunctionPointerWithContext object created from tptr and mptr.

Definition at line 129 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

pFunctionPointerWithContext_t add ( const FunctionPointerWithContext< ContextType > &  func)

Add a FunctionPointerWithContext at the front of the chain.

Parameters
[in]funcThe FunctionPointerWithContext to add.
Returns
The function object created for func.

Definition at line 141 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

void call ( ContextType  context)

Call sequentially each member of the chain.

Parameters
[in]contextParameter to pass to the functions called.

Definition at line 216 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

void call ( ContextType  context) const

Call sequentially each member of the chain.

Parameters
[in]contextParameter to pass to the functions called.

Definition at line 226 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

void clear ( void  )

Remove all functions registered in the chain.

Definition at line 189 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

bool detach ( const FunctionPointerWithContext< ContextType > &  toDetach)

Detach a function pointer from a callchain.

Parameters
[in]toDetachFunctionPointerWithContext instance to detach from this callchain.
Returns
true if a function pointer has been detached and false otherwise.
Note
It is safe to remove a function pointer while call(ContextType) is traversing the chain.

Definition at line 157 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

bool hasCallbacksAttached ( void  ) const

Check whether the callchain contains any callbacks.

Returns
true if the callchain is not empty and false otherwise.

Definition at line 206 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

void invalidTag ( ) const
protectedinherited

Nonimplemented call, use to disallow conversion between unrelated types.

operator BoolType_t ( ) const
inherited

Bool operator implementation, derived class must provide a bool toBool() const function.

Definition at line 119 of file SafeBool.h.

void operator() ( ContextType  context) const

Call sequentially each member of the chain.

Parameters
[in]contextParameter to pass to the functions called.
void first(bool);
void second(bool);
CallChainOfFunctionPointerWithContext<bool> foo;
foo.attach(first);
foo.attach(second);
// call the callchain like a function
foo(true);

Definition at line 261 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

bool toBool ( ) const

Test if the callchain is empty or not.

Returns
true if the callchain is not empty and false otherwise.
Note
used by SafeBool to offer a safe boolean conversion.
if (!chain) {
// Do something if the chain is empty.
}
if (chain) {
// Do something if the chain is not empty.
}

Definition at line 286 of file CallChainOfFunctionPointersWithContext.h.

void trueTag ( ) const
protectedinherited

Special member function that indicates a true value.

Definition at line 60 of file SafeBool.h.
