NAME ^

Reflex::Callback::Method - Callback adapter for class and object methods

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.099, released on April 21, 2013.

SYNOPSIS ^

Used within Reflex:

        package MethodHandler;
        use Moose;
        extends 'Reflex::Base';
        use Reflex::Callbacks qw(cb_method);
        use ExampleHelpers qw(eg_say);

        has ticker => (
                isa     => 'Maybe[Reflex::Interval]',
                is      => 'rw',
        );

        sub BUILD {
                my $self = shift;
                $self->ticker(
                        Reflex::Interval->new(
                                interval    => 1 + rand(),
                                auto_repeat => 1,
                                on_tick     => cb_method($self, "callback"),
                        )
                );
        }

        sub callback {
                eg_say("method callback triggered");
        }

        MethodHandler->new()->run_all();

Low-level usage:

        {
                package Object;
                use Moose;

                sub callback {
                        my ($self, $arg) = @_;
                        print "$self says: hello, $arg->{name}\n";
                }
        }

        my $object = Object->new();

        my $cb = Reflex::Callback::Method->new(
                object      => $object,
                method_name => "callback"
        );

        $cb->deliver(greet => { name => "world" });

DESCRIPTION ^

Reflex::Callback::Method maps the generic Reflex::Callback interface to object and class method callbacks. Reflex::Callbacks' cb_method() function simplifies callback creation. cb_object(), also supplied by Reflex::Callbacks, is shorthand for setting several callbacks at once on a single object or class. Other syntactic sweeteners are in development.

new

Reflex::Callback::Method's constructor takes two named parameters. "object" and "method_name" define the object and method that will be invoked to handle the callback.

Despite its name, "object" may also handle class names. In these cases, "method_name" will be invoked as a class method rather than on a particular instance of the class.

deliver

Reflex::Callback::Method's deliver() method invokes the object (or class) and method as defined during the callback's construction. deliver() takes two positional parameters: an event name (which is not currently used for method callbacks), and a hashref of named parameters to be passed to the callback.

deliver() returns whatever the coderef does.
