SharedResourcePointer vs juce_Singleton?


#1

which one?  why? 

I have a class that i'm trying to make static in my project.  it needs access to some fonts that i've stored as a SharedResourcePointer through-out my other classes in the project as each module uses the fonts. When my app closes, i'm getting a LeakCounter jassertfalse on the SharedResourcePointer for one of my font objects when this singleton class tries to destruct.

If you're writing a juce-based singleton using the macros, your class should inherit from DeletedAtShutdown.

Even better is a Myers singleton, though its use may be circumstancial. Example:

static Singleton& getInstance()
{
    static Singleton s;
    return s;
}

As for singleton vs SharedResourcePointer: I guess it depends! Jules wrote a bit about it here: http://www.juce.com/forum/topic/sharedresourcepointer
