EventDispatcher docs

Documentation has been added for EventDispatcher in LDoc format, generated from the source file.

Here’s the basic usage:

local EvtD = require "EventDispatcher"

local dispatcher = EvtD()

-- listener as table
local listener = {
   eventName = function(event, ...)
      print(event.name, event.target, event.source)
   end
}

-- listener as function
local function listener(event, ...)
    print(event.name, event.target, event.source)
end

dispatcher:addEventListener( "eventName", listener ) -- or
dispatcher:on( "eventName", listener )

dispatcher:once( "eventName", listener )

dispatcher:hasEventListener( "eventName", listener )

dispatcher:dispatchEvent( { name="eventName" } ) -- or
dispatcher:dispatchEvent( "eventName" ) -- or
dispatcher:emit( { name="eventName" } ) -- or
dispatcher:emit( "eventName" )

dispatcher:removeEventListener( "eventName", listener )

dispatcher:removeAllListeners( "eventName" ) -- or
dispatcher:removeAllListeners()

dispatcher:printListeners()

All listeners receive the following fields in the parameter event table:

  • event.name (name of the event)
  • event.target (the listener itself)
  • event.source (the dispatcher)
