Object

The Object class implements the base messages of the So-o model. All the other classes inherit from the Object class.

All the code for the So-o Object class is in the file Object.php.

  1. namespace Object;
  2.  
  3. use \InvalidArgumentException as InvalidArgumentException;

Places the code of the Object class in its own namespace.

  1. require_once 'OL.php';

Loads the code of the Object Layer.

  1. define(__NAMESPACE__ . '\InvalidClassProperty', '%s::%s Invalid class property');
  2. define(__NAMESPACE__ . '\InvalidClassMessage', '%s::%s Invalid class message');
  3. define(__NAMESPACE__ . '\InvalidInstanceProperty', '%s::%s Invalid instance property');
  4. define(__NAMESPACE__ . '\InvalidInstanceMessage', '%s::%s Invalid instance message');
  5.  
  6. define(__NAMESPACE__ . '\NotImplemented', '%s::%s Not implemented');
  7. define(__NAMESPACE__ . '\SubclassResponsibility', '%s::%s Subclass responsibility');

Defines the texts of the error messages returned by the Object class.

  1. defclass('Object',
  2.         // superclass
  3.         null,
  4.         // revision
  5.         1,
  6.         // class properties
  7.         null,
  8.         // instance properties
  9.         null,
  10.         // class messages
  11.         array('get', 'set', 'make', 'new', 'initialize', 'free', 'class', 'name', 'superclass', 'classMessages', 'instanceMessages', 'classProperties', 'instanceProperties', 'classMethodFor', 'instanceMethodFor', 'perform', 'read', 'write', 'error', 'doesNotContain', 'doesNotRecognize', 'notImplemented', 'subclassResponsibility', 'revision', 'addInstanceMessage', 'removeInstanceMessage', 'addClassMessage', 'removeClassMessage', 'addInstanceProperty', 'removeInstanceProperty', 'addClassProperty', 'removeClassProperty', 'check'),
  12.         // instance messages
  13.         array('get', 'set', 'init', 'free', 'class', 'superclass', 'perform', 'delegate', 'setDelegate', 'respondsTo', 'methodFor', 'isKindOf', 'copy', 'read', 'write', 'assume', 'toString', 'print', 'error', 'doesNotContain', 'doesNotRecognize', 'notImplemented', 'subclassResponsibility', 'messages', 'properties')
  14.         );

The Object class is the only class which doesn't inherit from a superclass. It doesn't have any class or instance properties. It implements all the base messages of the So-o model.

CLASS METHODS

free
SYNOPSIS

free($self)

DESCRIPTION

free is automatically sent by the Object Layer to a class which is not referenced anymore. The free method defined by the Object class does nothing.

IMPORTANT: If you decide to remove the __destruct method from the Definition class of the Object Layer, the container for a class, free will not be sent automatically.

CODE
  1. function c_free($self) {
  2. }

free does nothing.

initialize
SYNOPSIS

initialize($self)

DESCRIPTION

initialize is automatically sent by defclass to a new class. The initialize method defined by the Object class does nothing.

initialize is usually redefined by a class which must initialize its class properties.

CODE
  1. function c_initialize ($self) {
  2.     return $self;
  3. }

initialize does nothing and returns $self.

class
name

SYNOPSIS

get($self, $attribute)

set($self, $attribute, $value)

DESCRIPTION

get returns the value of the property $attribute of $self.

set sets the value of the property $attribute of $self to $value.

IMPORTANT: get returns a value, not a reference to a value. To modify the content of an attribute whose value is an array, obtain its value with get, modify it then change the value of the property with set.

CODE
  1. function c_get($self, $attribute) {
  2.     return \OL\class_get($self, $attribute);
  3. }
  4.  
  5. function c_set($self, $attribute, $value) {

notImplemented($self, $message)

subclassResponsibility($self, $message)

DESCRIPTION

error triggers a PHP error level E_USER_ERROR whose text is formatted with the function sprintf with in argument $err and the parameters of the message following $err.

write calls the function serialize with in argument the array of attributs of $self and returns the result. read obtains the list of properties of $self, calls the function unserialize with $data in argument, checks if the result is an array, then initializes every attributs of $self with the corresponding value extracted from this array.

delegate
setDelegate
SYNOPSIS

delegate($self, $msg=false[, $arg ...])

setDelegate($self, $delegate)

DESCRIPTION

delegate returns the result of sending the message $msg and the arguments $arg following $msg to the delegate of $self. If $self doesn't have a delegate or if the delegate of $self doesn't respond to the message $msg, delegate returns false. If $msg is false, delegate returns the delegate of $self.

setDelegate initializes the delegate property of $self with $delegate.

NOTE: Sending delegate or setDelegate to an instance which does have the property delegate sends the message doesNotContain to the instance.

CODE
  1. function i_delegate($self, $msg=false) {
  2.     $delegate=\OL\object_get($self, 'delegate');
  3.  
  4.     if (!$msg) {
  5.         return $delegate;
  6.     }
  7.  
  8.     if (!$delegate) {
  9.         return false;
  10.     }
  11.  
  12.     if (!\OL\object_send_message($delegate, 'respondsTo', array($msg))) {
  13.         return false;
  14.     }
  15.  
  16.     return \OL\object_send_message($delegate, $msg, array_slice(func_get_args(), 2));
  17. }
  18.  
  19. function i_setDelegate($self, $delegate) {
  20.     if (!(is_null($delegate) or is_object($delegate))) {
  21.         throw new InvalidArgumentException();
  22.     }
  23.  
  24.     return \OL\object_set($self, 'delegate', $delegate);
  25. }

delegate sets $delegate to the valeur of the property delegate of $self, returns $delegate if $msg is false, returns false if $delegate is null or if $delegate doesn't respond to $msg, returns the result of sending $msg with the arguments of delegate following $msg to $delegate. setDelegate checks if $delegate is null or an object then sets the property delegate of $self to $delegate.

error
doesNotContain
doesNotRecognize
notImplemented
subclassResponsibility
SYNOPSIS

error($self, $err[, $arg ...])

doesNotContain($self, $property)

doesNotRecognize($self, $message)

notImplemented($self, $message)

subclassResponsibility($self, $message)

DESCRIPTION

error triggers a PHP error level E_USER_ERROR whose text is formatted with the function sprintf with in argument $err and the parameters of the message following $err.

doesNotContain sends the message error to $self with in argument the constant InvalidClassProperty, the name of the class of $self and $property.

doesNotRecognize sends the message error to $self with in argument the constant InvalidClassMessage, the name of the class of $self and $message.

notImplemented sends the message error to $self with in argument the constant NotImplemented, the name of the class of $self and $message.

subclassResponsibility sends the message error to $self with in argument the constant SubclassResponsibility, the name of the class of $self and $message.

doesNotContain and doesNotRecognize are sent by the Object Layer. notImplemented is generally sent by a method which isn't coded yet while subclassResponsibility is sent by a method which must be implemented by a subclass of an abstract class.

CODE
  1. function i_error ($self, $err) {
  2.     $errmsg=call_user_func_array('sprintf', array_merge(array($err), array_slice(func_get_args(), 2)));
  3.  
  4.     return trigger_error($errmsg, E_USER_ERROR);
  5. }
  6.  
  7. function i_doesNotContain($self, $property) {
  8.     return \OL\object_send_message($self, 'error', array(InvalidInstanceProperty, \OL\class_name(\OL\object_class($self)), $property));
  9. }
  10.  
  11. function i_doesNotRecognize($self, $message) {
  12.     return \OL\object_send_message($self, 'error', array(InvalidInstanceMessage, \OL\class_name(\OL\object_class($self)), $message));
  13. }
  14.  
  15. function i_notImplemented($self, $message) {
  16.     return \OL\object_send_message($self, 'error', array(NotImplemented, \OL\class_name(\OL\object_class($self)), $message));
  17. }
  18.  
  19. function i_subclassResponsibility($self, $message) {
  20.     return \OL\object_send_message($self, 'error', array(SubclassResponsibility, \OL\class_name(\OL\object_class($self)), $message));
  21. }

error formats the error message $errmsg by passing $err and the remaining arguments of error following $err to sprintf then calls trigger_error with in argument $errmsg and the error level E_USER_ERROR. doesNotContain, doesNotRecognize, notImplemented and subclassResponsibility send the message error to $self with in argument the constant of the corresponding error message and its parameters.
