Detailed Description

A configuration manager makes a number of individual iConfigFile objects appear to be a single configuration object.

See the description of the iConfigManager interface for full details.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

csConfigManager::csConfigManager ( iConfigFile DynamicDomain = 0,
bool  Optimize = false 
)

Create a new config manager object.

If 'Optimize' is set to 'true', then the configuration manager will enable some optimizations, which you may or may not want:

  • When an iConfigFile is added via AddDomain(name, vfs), the configuration manager first looks through all registered iConfigFile objects. If an object with the same name and VFS pointer are found, it is added a second time, so the file is not loaded twice.
  • When an iConfigFile is removed, the configuration manager keeps a reference to it until Flush() is called. If you add the iConfigFile again in the meantime with AddDomain(name, vfs), this reference is used instead.
virtual csConfigManager::~csConfigManager (  )  [virtual]

Destroy configuration manager.


Member Function Documentation

virtual void csConfigManager::AddDomain ( iConfigFile ,
int  priority 
) [virtual]

Add a configuration domain.

The configuration manager invokes IncRef() upon the incoming iConfigFile.

virtual iConfigFile* csConfigManager::AddDomain ( char const *  path,
iVFS ,
int  priority 
) [virtual]

Add a configuration domain by loading it from a file.

The new iConfigFile object which represents the loaded file is also returned. If you want to hold onto the iConfigFile even after it is removed from this object or after the configuration manager is destroyed, be sure to invoke IncRef() or assign it to a csRef<>. The incoming iVFS* may be null, in which case the path is assumed to point at a file in the pyhysical filesystem, rather than at a file in the virtual filesystem.

void csConfigManager::CleanUp (  ) 

FlushRemoved() and delete all domains.

virtual void csConfigManager::Clear (  )  [virtual]

Delete all options and rewind all iterators.

virtual void csConfigManager::DeleteKey ( const char *  Key  )  [virtual]

Delete a key and its value and comment.

virtual csPtr<iConfigIterator> csConfigManager::Enumerate ( const char *  Subsection = 0  )  [virtual]

Enumerate selected keys.

If a subsection is given, only those keys which are prefixed by the subsection string will be enumerated. The returned iterator does not yet point to a valid key. You must call Next() to set it to the first key.

virtual void csConfigManager::FlushRemoved (  )  [virtual]

flush all removed configuration files (only required in optimize mode)

virtual bool csConfigManager::GetBool ( const char *  Key,
bool  Def = false 
) const [virtual]

Get a boolean value from the configuration.

virtual const char* csConfigManager::GetComment ( const char *  Key  )  const [virtual]

Get the comment of the given key, or 0 if no comment exists.

virtual int csConfigManager::GetDomainPriority ( char const *  path  )  const [virtual]

Return the priority of a configuration domain.

If the domain is not registered, PriorityMedium is returned.

virtual int csConfigManager::GetDomainPriority ( iConfigFile  )  const [virtual]

Return the priority of a configuration domain.

If the domain is not registered, PriorityMedium is returned.

virtual iConfigFile* csConfigManager::GetDynamicDomain (  )  const [virtual]

Return a pointer to the dynamic configuration domain.

The returned pointer will remain valid as long as the domain is registered with the configuration manager.

virtual int csConfigManager::GetDynamicDomainPriority (  )  const [virtual]

Return the priority of the dynamic configuration domain.

virtual const char* csConfigManager::GetEOFComment (  )  const [virtual]

return the final comment at the end of the configuration file

virtual const char* csConfigManager::GetFileName (  )  const [virtual]

Get configuration file name.

Also consult GetVFS() to determine which (if any) VFS object was used for the file's storage.

virtual float csConfigManager::GetFloat ( const char *  Key,
float  Def = 0.0 
) const [virtual]

Get a float value from the configuration.

virtual int csConfigManager::GetInt ( const char *  Key,
int  Def = 0 
) const [virtual]

Get an integer value from the configuration.

virtual const char* csConfigManager::GetStr ( const char *  Key,
const char *  Def = "" 
) const [virtual]

Get a string value from the configuration.

virtual csPtr<iStringArray> csConfigManager::GetTuple ( const char *  Key  )  const [virtual]

Get a tuple set from the configuration.

virtual iVFS* csConfigManager::GetVFS (  )  const [virtual]

Get the VFS object on which this file is stored (if any).

Returns 0 if this file resides within the real (non-VFS) filesystem.

virtual bool csConfigManager::KeyExists ( const char *  Key  )  const [virtual]

Test if a key exists.

virtual bool csConfigManager::Load ( const char *  iFileName,
iVFS = 0,
bool  Merge = false,
bool  NewWins = true 
) [virtual]

Load a configuration file.

If the file resides in a real filesystem, rather than a VFS filesystem, then pass 0 for the VFS argument. This will clear all options before loading the new options, even if the file cannot be opened.

You can set the Merge flag to merge the newly loaded configuration information into the existing information. If you do so, nothing will happen if the named file doesn't exist. The NewWins flag determines the behavior in case of configuration key conflicts. If true, then the new configuration value replaces the old for that key. If false, then the old value is kept, and the new value is ignored. The recorded file name will be set to the name of the newly loaded file if the Merge flag is false; otherwise it will retain the old name.

virtual iConfigFile* csConfigManager::LookupDomain ( char const *  path  )  const [virtual]

Find the iConfigFile object for a registered domain.

Returns null if the domain is not registered.

virtual void csConfigManager::RemoveDomain ( char const *  path  )  [virtual]

Remove a configuration domain.

virtual void csConfigManager::RemoveDomain ( iConfigFile  )  [virtual]

Remove a configuration domain.

If registered, the configuration manager will relinquish its reference to the domain by invoking DecRef() on it to balance the IncRef() it performed when the domain was added. If the domain is not registered, the RemoveDomain() request is ignored. It is not legal to remove the dynamic domain.

virtual bool csConfigManager::Save (  )  [virtual]

Save configuration to the same place from which it was loaded.

Returns true if the save operation succeeded, else false.

virtual bool csConfigManager::Save ( const char *  iFileName,
iVFS = 0 
) [virtual]

Save configuration into the given file (on VFS or on the physical filesystem).

If the iVFS parameter is null, the file will be written to the physical filesystem, otherwise it is stored on given VFS filesystem. This method does not change the internally stored file name.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetBool ( const char *  Key,
bool  Value 
) [virtual]

Set a boolean value.

virtual bool csConfigManager::SetComment ( const char *  Key,
const char *  Text 
) [virtual]

Set the comment for given key.

In addition to an actual comment, you can use "" for Text to place an empty comment line before this key, or 0 to remove the comment entirely. The comment may contain newline characters. Returns false if the key does not exist.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetDomainPriority ( char const *  path,
int  priority 
) [virtual]

Set the priority of a configuration domain.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetDomainPriority ( iConfigFile ,
int  priority 
) [virtual]

Set the priority of a registered configuration domain.

If the domain is not registered, the request is ignored.

virtual bool csConfigManager::SetDynamicDomain ( iConfigFile  )  [virtual]

Change the dynamic domain.

The domain must already have been registered with AddDomain() before calling this method. If the domain is not registered, then false is returned.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetDynamicDomainPriority ( int  priority  )  [virtual]

Set the priority of the dynamic configuration domain.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetEOFComment ( const char *  Text  )  [virtual]

set the final comment at the end of the configuration file

virtual void csConfigManager::SetFileName ( const char *  ,
iVFS  
) [virtual]

Set config file name.

You can use this if you want Save() to write to another file. The incoming iVFS can be null, in which case the filename represents a file in the physical fileysstem. This will set the dirty flag.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetFloat ( const char *  Key,
float  Value 
) [virtual]

Set a floating-point value.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetInt ( const char *  Key,
int  Value 
) [virtual]

Set an integer value.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetStr ( const char *  Key,
const char *  Val 
) [virtual]

Set an null-terminated string value.

virtual void csConfigManager::SetTuple ( const char *  Key,
iStringArray Value 
) [virtual]

Set a tuple value.

virtual bool csConfigManager::SubsectionExists ( const char *  Subsection  )  const [virtual]

Test if at least one key exists with the given Subsection prefix.
