I am trying to use boost::signals in my GUI project.
The capturing feature is needed when
a window has many separate regions (each region is a slot)
and a region wants to capture all mouse events after the mouse enters
this region. It is a very typical situation.
The ability to enumerate slots in a defined order is
necessary for building something similar to callback chains.
For instance, in Win32 you can insert your window callback
function into the existing chain.
if( some condition )
prev_cb(); //propagate the signal futher
return; //stop signal propagation
prev_cb = register_callback(w, my_callback)
I am not sure what's the best way to implement something like this with
It seems to me that we need a finer control over the slots.
