Detailed Description

Base class of the hierarchy of classes describing various situations occurring during execution of some algorithm or procedure.

Alert should provide unique text identifier that can be used to distinguish particular type of alerts, e.g. to get text message string describing it. See method GetMessageKey(); by default, dynamic type name is used.

Alert can contain some data. To avoid duplication of data, new alert can be merged with another one of the same type. Method SupportsMerge() should return true if merge is supported; method Merge() should do the merge if possible and return true in that case and false otherwise.

Member Function Documentation

◆ GetMessageKey()

virtual Standard_CString Message_Alert::GetMessageKey ( ) const
virtual

Return a C string to be used as a key for generating text user messages describing this alert. The messages are generated with help of Message_Msg class, in Message_Report::Dump(). Base implementation returns dynamic type name of the instance.

◆ Merge()

virtual Standard_Boolean Message_Alert::Merge ( const Handle< Message_Alert > &  theTarget)
virtual

If possible, merge data contained in this alert to theTarget.

Returns
True if merged. Base implementation always returns true.

Reimplemented in TopoDS_AlertWithShape.

◆ SupportsMerge()

virtual Standard_Boolean Message_Alert::SupportsMerge ( ) const
virtual

Return true if this type of alert can be merged with other of the same type to avoid duplication. Basis implementation returns true.

Reimplemented in TopoDS_AlertWithShape.
