This is the base class to a number of objects that record particular kinds of user input (like a
MouseRecorder) to use in conjunction with a
RecorderControllerto record the user’s inputs for a session.
Note that RecorderBase does not actually inherit from
TypedObject, even though it defines get_type(). The assumption is that the classes that derive from RecorderBase might also inherit independently from
It also does not inherit from
TypedWritable, but it defines a method called write_recorder() which is very similar to a TypedWritable’s write_datagram(). Classes that derive from RecorderBase and also inherit from
TypedWritablemay choose to remap write_recorder() to do exactly the same thing as write_datagram(), or they may choose to write something slightly different.
Returns true if this recorder is presently playing back data from session file, false otherwise. If this is true, play_data() will be called from time to time.
Returns true if this recorder is presently recording data for saving to a session file, false otherwise. If this is true, record_data() will be called from time to time.
