interface org.puremvc.haxe.interfaces.IView

The interface definition for a PureMVC View.

In PureMVC, the View class assumes these responsibilities:

function hasMediator(mediatorName : String) : Bool
Check if a Mediator is registered or not
function notifyObservers(note : INotification) : Void

Notify the IObservers for a particular INotification.

All previously attached IObservers for this INotification's list are notified and are passed a reference to the INotification in the order in which they were registered.

function registerMediator(mediator : IMediator) : Void

Register an IMediator instance with the View.

Registers the IMediator so that it can be retrieved by name, and further interrogates the IMediator for its INotification interests.

If the IMediator returns any INotification names to be notified about, an Observer is created encapsulating the IMediator instance's handleNotification method and registering it as an Observer for all INotifications the IMediator is interested in.

function registerObserver(noteName : String, observer : IObserver) : Void
Register an IObserver to be notified of INotifications with a given name.
function removeMediator(mediatorName : String) : IMediator
Remove an IMediator from the View.
function removeObserver(notificationName : String, notifyContext : Dynamic) : Void
Remove a group of observers from the observer list for a given Notification name.
function retrieveMediator(mediatorName : String) : IMediator
Retrieve an IMediator from the View.
