Fluent ValueTree interface


Can you make that change:

void ValueTree::setProperty(...) { ...}


ValueTree & ValueTree::setProperty(...) { ...; return *this; }

So we can write code like this:

// Using a fluent interface avoid creating a temporary and seems easier to read.
valueTree.addChild(ValueTree("foo").setProperty("bar", "yes", 0), -1, 0);
// or this:
valueTree.setProperty("bar", "yes", 0)
              .setProperty("baz", "no", 0); 

It’ll not break existing user code (since the previous version returned void), but would really be a saver for the new version.


yeah, seems like a good request, I guess!
