I’m creating a custom LookAndFeel_V4 class, and want to be able to draw a simple level meter to display input dB for an audio plugin. I see that LookAndFeel includes a virtual drawLevelMeter() method. However, unlike most other virtual draw methods (which I was able to override in my LookAndFeel class without much hassle), drawLevelMeter() does NOT take an xy OR graphic component as input. In fact, it appears that AudioDeviceManger::LevelMeter is not a graphic component (like Slider or Button) but a reference-counted struct.
So my question is: what is the intended purpose of drawLevelMeter()? What component/object will call this method?
Thanks in advance!
