So, I don’t think there’s a nice answer to this, but all ideas would be welcome.
We have an import job, that reads a file and updates a ValueTree via some wrapper objects. Works super-great. The ValueTree has some listeners attached that do important jobs.
However the import takes a while. So we put a ProgressBar on it.
So now the import job updates the various application data structures, but we have callbacks hitting on the main thread and stuff bombing out.
So if I can I’m going to rewrite the import job so it does it on a second ValueTree and then we attach it to the other one later on the main thread.
But it’s a hell of a lot of fuss for a progress bar ;-0
It’d be really nice to be able to freeze ValueTree listeners for an operation and then fire them off later… ?
Any other ideas? Thread-safe ValueTree?
