    [RESOLVED] Dispatching Events, Custom Event Parameters?

    Is there a way to make the single parameter for the event dispatcher either take a custom class or add arguments into it?

    In other words, when dispatching events, i'd like to pass more data than just the event type. And sometimes i prefer to use the event dispatchers more dynamic setup as apposed to the more static methodology of having function references pass arguments.

    Hope that made sense..

    Usually, all of the arguments you will pass will be included in the event object.. So you'd need to create a custom event class which extends the original Event class, and include all the information you'd like to pass in it

    you'd then use that CustomEvent when dispatching an event

    you'd just then use a custom event (subclass the event class and use an instance of that class as your event)

    Note that you should override and reimplement the clone() method, otherwise you may get errors in re-dispatching instances of your custom event.
