EventParameter

from panda3d.core import EventParameter
class EventParameter

An optional parameter associated with an event. Each event may have zero or more of these. Each parameter stores a pointer to a TypedWritableReferenceCount object, which of course could be pretty much anything. To store a simple value like a double or a string, the EventParameter constructors transparently use the ParamValue template class from paramValue.h.

__init__()
__init__(copy: EventParameter)
__init__(ptr: TypedReferenceCount)

Defines an EventParameter that stores a pointer to a TypedReferenceCount object. Note that a TypedReferenceCount is not the same kind of pointer as a TypedWritableReferenceCount, hence we require both constructors.

This accepts a const pointer, even though it stores (and eventually returns) a non-const pointer. This is just the simplest way to allow both const and non-const pointers to be stored, but it does lose the constness. Be careful.

__init__(ptr: TypedWritableReferenceCount)

Defines an EventParameter that stores a pointer to any kind of TypedWritableReferenceCount object. This is the most general constructor.

This accepts a const pointer, even though it stores (and eventually returns) a non-const pointer. This is just the simplest way to allow both const and non-const pointers to be stored, but it does lose the constness. Be careful.

__init__(value: float)

Defines an EventParameter that stores a floating-point value.

__init__(value: int)

Defines an EventParameter that stores an integer value.

__init__(param0: nullptr_t)
__init__(value: str)

Defines an EventParameter that stores a string value.

__init__(value: str)

Defines an EventParameter that stores a wstring value.

assign(copy: EventParameter)EventParameter
getDoubleValue()float

Retrieves the value stored in the EventParameter. It is only valid to call this if isDouble() has already returned true.

getIntValue()int

Retrieves the value stored in the EventParameter. It is only valid to call this if isInt() has already returned true.

getPtr()TypedWritableReferenceCount

Retrieves a pointer to the actual value stored in the parameter. The TypeHandle of this pointer may be examined to determine the actual type of parameter it contains. This is the only way to retrieve the value when it is not one of the above predefined types.

getStringValue()str

Retrieves the value stored in the EventParameter. It is only valid to call this if isString() has already returned true.

getTypedRefCountValue()TypedReferenceCount

Retrieves the value stored in the EventParameter. It is only valid to call this if isTypedRefCount() has already returned true.

getWstringValue()str

Retrieves the value stored in the EventParameter. It is only valid to call this if isWstring() has already returned true.

isDouble()bool

Returns true if the EventParameter stores a double floating-point value, false otherwise.

isEmpty()bool

These functions are conveniences to easily determine if the EventParameter is one of the predefined parameter types, and retrieve the corresponding value. Of course, it is possible that the EventParameter is some user-defined type, and is none of these.

isInt()bool

Returns true if the EventParameter stores an integer value, false otherwise.

isString()bool

Returns true if the EventParameter stores a string value, false otherwise.

isTypedRefCount()bool

Returns true if the EventParameter stores a TypedReferenceCount pointer, false otherwise. Note that a TypedReferenceCount is not exactly the same kind of pointer as a TypedWritableReferenceCount, hence the need for this separate call.

isWstring()bool

Returns true if the EventParameter stores a wstring value, false otherwise.
