Detailed Description

Represents a dynamically implemented object.

This class is primarily intended for wrapping scripting language objects, but could be used for other purposes.

An instance of a DynamicObject can be used to store named properties, and by subclassing hasMethod() and invokeMethod(), you can give your object methods.

Member Function Documentation

◆ hasProperty()

virtual bool DynamicObject::hasProperty ( const Identifier propertyName) const
virtual

Returns true if the object has a property with this name.

Note that if the property is actually a method, this will return false.

◆ getProperty()

virtual const var& DynamicObject::getProperty ( const Identifier propertyName) const
virtual

Returns a named property.

This returns var() if no such property exists.

◆ setProperty()

virtual void DynamicObject::setProperty ( const Identifier propertyName,
const var newValue 
)
virtual

Sets a named property.

◆ removeProperty()

virtual void DynamicObject::removeProperty ( const Identifier propertyName)
virtual

Removes a named property.

◆ hasMethod()

virtual bool DynamicObject::hasMethod ( const Identifier methodName) const
virtual

Checks whether this object has the specified method.

The default implementation of this just checks whether there's a property with this name that's actually a method, but this can be overridden for building objects with dynamic invocation.

◆ invokeMethod()

virtual var DynamicObject::invokeMethod ( Identifier  methodName,
const var::NativeFunctionArgs args 
)
virtual

Invokes a named method on this object.

The default implementation looks up the named property, and if it's a method call, then it invokes it.

This method is virtual to allow more dynamic invocation to used for objects where the methods may not already be set as properies.

◆ setMethod()

void DynamicObject::setMethod ( Identifier  methodName,
var::NativeFunction  function 
)

Adds a method to the class.

This is basically the same as calling setProperty (methodName, (var::NativeFunction) myFunction), but helps to avoid accidentally invoking the wrong type of var constructor. It also makes the code easier to read,

◆ clear()

void DynamicObject::clear ( )

Removes all properties and methods from the object.

◆ getProperties()

NamedValueSet& DynamicObject::getProperties ( )
noexcept

Returns the NamedValueSet that holds the object's properties.

◆ cloneAllProperties()

void DynamicObject::cloneAllProperties ( )

Calls var::clone() on all the properties that this object contains.

◆ clone()

virtual Ptr DynamicObject::clone ( )
virtual

Returns a clone of this object.

The default implementation of this method just returns a new DynamicObject with a (deep) copy of all of its properties. Subclasses can override this to implement their own custom copy routines.

◆ writeAsJSON()

virtual void DynamicObject::writeAsJSON ( OutputStream ,
int  indentLevel,
bool  allOnOneLine,
int  maximumDecimalPlaces 
)
virtual

Writes this object to a text stream in JSON format.

This method is used by JSON::toString and JSON::writeToStream, and you should never need to call it directly, but it's virtual so that custom object types can stringify themselves appropriately.
