gMessage-class: Class "gMessage": A virtual class for messages

Description Objects from the Class Methods Author(s) See Also


gMessage is a virtual class from which all other message classes will inherit. Message objects will be created whenever there is communication between the model, view, and controller components or between MVC objects.

Objects from the Class

A virtual Class: No objects may be created from it.


No methods defined with class "gMessage" in the signature. However, all message classes will have a handleMessage method that will read the message and notify the appropriate components so that the information in the message can be acted upon. The handleMessage methods will be defined in packages that use this package, such as iSPlot and iSNetwork.
