NAME

SDLx::Controller::Interface - Interface Physics and Rendering with the Controller with callbacks

CONTENTS

CATEGORY

Extension, Controller

SYNOPSIS



 use SDL;
 use SDLx::App;
 use SDLx::Controller::Interface;

 #SDLx::App is a controller
 my $app = SDLx::App->new(width => 200, height => 200 );

 my $ball = SDLx::Controller::Interface->new( x=> 10, y => 50, v_x => 10, v_y=> 20 );
 #Set the initial state of the balls physics, this is optional

 $ball->set_acceleration(
    sub {
              my ($time, $current_state) = @_;
              return( 0, -10, 0 ); # Return accelerations (x,y,rotation)
        }
 );

 my $ball_render = sub {
       my $state = shift;

       $app->draw_rect( undef, 0 );
       $app->draw_rect( [$state->x, $state->y, 10,10], [255,0,0,255] );
       $app->update();
 };


 $ball->attach( $app, $ball_render, @params );

 $app->run();

 $ball->detach(); #can be called at anytime (for example when ball dies)



DESCRIPTION

METHODS

    set_acceleration

Allows you to set the acceleration callback for defining the interface’s behaviour in terms of x,y and rotation.



  $interface->set_acceleration (
      sub {
         my ($time, $current_state) = @_;
      
         return ( $accel_x, $accel_y, $torque );
      }
  );



These accelerations are arbitrary and can be set to any frame of reference. Your render callback will handle how to interpret it.

The callback will receive the time and the current state as a SDLx::Controller::State element.

    attach

Attaches the interface to a controller with a render callback



  $interface->attach( $controller, $render, @params );



Where $render is a callback that receives the interpolated SDLx::Controller::State.



  my $render = sub {
        my ($state, @params) = @_;
        # draw the current $state.
  };



The @params are any extra parameters you would like to pass to the $render callback.

    current



  my $current_state = $interface->current();



Returns the current state of the interface as a SDLx::Controller::State.

    previous



  my $previous_state = $interface->previous();



Returns the previous state of the interface as a SDLx::Controller::State.

    detach



  $interface->detach();



If $interface has been attach()’ed to any controller it will be detached now.

OTHER METHODS

Don’t use these unless you really really want to.

    acceleration

Call the acceleration callback once.

    interpolate

Interpolate the current state

    evaluate

Evaluate the new current and previous state.

    update

Update the states by integrating with time.
