Public Member Functions

bool IsValidComponent (const ezComponentHandle &component) const
 Checks whether the given handle references a valid component.
 
bool TryGetComponent (const ezComponentHandle &component, ezComponent *&out_pComponent)
 Returns if a component with the given handle exists and if so writes out the corresponding pointer to out_pComponent.
 
bool TryGetComponent (const ezComponentHandle &component, const ezComponent *&out_pComponent) const
 Returns if a component with the given handle exists and if so writes out the corresponding pointer to out_pComponent.
 
ezUInt32 GetComponentCount () const
 Returns the number of components managed by this manager.
 
ezComponentHandle CreateComponent (ezGameObject *pOwnerObject)
 Create a new component instance and returns a handle to it.
 
template<typename ComponentType >
ezComponentHandle CreateComponent (ezGameObject *pOwnerObject, ComponentType *&out_pComponent)
 Create a new component instance and returns a handle to it.
 
void DeleteComponent (const ezComponentHandle &component)
 Deletes the given component. Note that the component will be invalidated first and the actual deletion is postponed.
 
virtual void CollectAllComponents (ezDynamicArray< ezComponentHandle > &out_AllComponents)=0
 Adds all components that this manager handles to the given array (array is not cleared). Prefer to use more efficient methods on derived classes, only use this if you need to go through a ezComponentManagerBase pointer.
 
virtual void CollectAllComponents (ezDynamicArray< ezComponent *> &out_AllComponents)=0
 Adds all components that this manager handles to the given array (array is not cleared). Prefer to use more efficient methods on derived classes, only use this if you need to go through a ezComponentManagerBase pointer.
 
- Public Member Functions inherited from ezWorldModule
ezWorldGetWorld ()
 Returns the corresponding world to this module.
 
const ezWorldGetWorld () const
 Returns the corresponding world to this module.
 
- Public Member Functions inherited from ezReflectedClass
virtual const ezRTTIGetDynamicRTTI () const
 
EZ_ALWAYS_INLINE bool IsInstanceOf (const ezRTTI *pType) const
 Returns whether the type of this instance is of the given type or derived from it.
 
template<typename T >
EZ_ALWAYS_INLINE bool IsInstanceOf () const
 Returns whether the type of this instance is of the given type or derived from it.
 

Protected Member Functions

 ezComponentManagerBase (ezWorld *pWorld)
 
- Protected Member Functions inherited from ezWorldModule
 ezWorldModule (ezWorld *pWorld)
 
void RegisterUpdateFunction (const UpdateFunctionDesc &desc)
 Registers the given update function at the world.
 
void DeregisterUpdateFunction (const UpdateFunctionDesc &desc)
 De-registers the given update function from the world. Note that only the m_Function and the m_Phase of the description have to be valid for de-registration.
 
ezAllocatorBaseGetAllocator ()
 Returns the allocator used by the world.
 
ezInternal::WorldLargeBlockAllocatorGetBlockAllocator ()
 Returns the block allocator used by the world.
 
bool GetWorldSimulationEnabled () const
 Returns whether the world simulation is enabled.
 
virtual void InitializeInternal ()
 Internal methods called by the world.
 
virtual void DeinitializeInternal ()
 
virtual void Initialize ()
 This method is called after the constructor. A derived type can override this method to do initialization work. Typically this is the method where updates function are registered.
 
virtual void Deinitialize ()
 This method is called before the destructor. A derived type can override this method to do deinitialization work.
 
virtual void OnSimulationStarted ()
 This method is called at the start of the next world update when the world is simulated. This method will be called after the initialization method.

Detailed Description

Base class for all component managers. Do not derive directly from this class, but derive from ezComponentManager instead.

Every component type has its corresponding manager type. The manager stores the components in memory blocks to minimize overhead on creation and deletion of components. Each manager can also register update functions to update its components during the different update phases of ezWorld. Use ezWorld::CreateComponentManager to create an instance of a component manager within a specific world.
