has any thought been given to some of the singleton classes in juce to give them a fluent interface? basically, all the functions that currently return
void get changed to
this would allow classes like the Desktop or ComponentAnimator class to have method chaining:
Desktop::getInstance().getAnimator() .addChangeListener(a) // 'a' wants to listen for when the animation starts .animateComponent(/* args */) .removeChangeListener(a) //but not when it ends .addChangeListener(b) // 'b' wants to know when the animation ends .addChangeListener(c); // as does 'c' MessageManager::getInstance().registerBroadcastListener() .callFunctionOnMessageThread() .broadcastMessage();
I believe classes like the Rectangle, Point, Line and String class already implement this design style.
has this ever been discussed?
