Add a little reflection API
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Add code generator support for generating a tuple list of "name of propertz" - setter-func-pointer - getter-func-pointer.

This list should be accessable from eo API to search for keys, so perperties can be linked.

The whole idea would be something like this:

Addition to Eo.h:

typedef struct {

const char *property_name;
Eina_Value type_type;
Setter setter; /* function pointer */
Getter getter; /* function pointer */

} Reflection_Line;

The getter has to have the type that is passed in as type of the return type.
The setter has to have the type that is passed in as the second argument of the function

void efl_reflection_table_set(const Reflection_Line *line);

void efl_reflection_set(const Eo *obj, const char *name, Eina_Value *value);
void efl_reflection_get(const Eo *obj, const char *name, Eina_Value **value);

The table however needs to be generated by some magically unicorns that can write code.

Eina_Value generic_string_get(Eo *obj, void *(*str_get)(Eo *obj))

const char *s = str_get(obj);
return eina_value_string_init(s);


void generic_string_set(Eo *obj, Eina_Value s, voir (*str_set)(Eo *obj, void *str))

char *s = eina_value_string_convert(&s);
str_set(obj, s);


{ "file", generic_string_get, generic_string_set } = efl_property_reflection_get("file");
