Loads and maintains a tree of Components from a ValueTree that represents them.
To allow the state of a tree of components to be saved as a ValueTree and re-loaded, this class lets you register a set of type-handlers for the different components that are involved, and then uses these types to re-create a set of components from its stored state.
Essentially, to use this, you need to create a ComponentBuilder with your ValueTree, then use registerTypeHandler() to give it a set of type handlers that can cope with all the items in your tree. Then you can call getComponent() to build the component. Once you've got the component you can either take it and delete the ComponentBuilder object, or if you keep the ComponentBuilder around, it'll monitor any changes in the ValueTree and automatically update the component to reflect these changes.
Constructor & Destructor Documentation
Creates a builder that doesn't have a state object.
Member Function Documentation
Returns the builder's component (creating it if necessary).
The first time that this method is called, the builder will attempt to create a component from the ValueTree, so you must have registered some suitable type handlers before calling this. If there's a problem and the component can't be created, this method returns nullptr.
The component that is returned is owned by this ComponentBuilder, so you can put it inside your own parent components, but don't delete it! The ComponentBuilder will delete it automatically when the builder is destroyed. If you want to get a component that you can delete yourself, call createComponent() instead.
The ComponentBuilder will update this component if any changes are made to the ValueTree, so if there's a chance that the tree might change, be careful not to keep any pointers to sub-components, as they may be changed or removed.
|void ComponentBuilder::registerTypeHandler||(||TypeHandler *||type||)|
Adds a type handler that the builder can use when trying to load components.
Tries to find a registered type handler that can load a component from the given ValueTree.
Registers handlers for various standard juce components.
Gives the builder an ImageProvider object that the type handlers can use when loading images from stored references.
The object that is passed in is not owned by the builder, so the caller must delete it when it is no longer needed, but not while the builder may still be using it. To clear the image provider, just call setImageProvider (nullptr).
Returns the current image provider that this builder is using, or nullptr if none has been set.
Updates the children of a parent component by updating them from the children of a given ValueTree.
Member Data Documentation
This is the ValueTree data object that the builder is working with.
