interface IGeoObject in Tinman.Terrain.Georef

Base interface for classes that represent entities for geo-referencing.

interface IGeoObject extends IConfigurable
  IEquatable<IGeoObject>
  ISerializable
  base of GeoObject
  ICoordinateOperation

Remarks

Instances of IGeoObject are immutable; this makes sure that no inconsistencies arise when geo objects are put into the GeoRegistry.

Attributes

Name

The human-readable name of this object.

property Name { get }
type string
value [not-empty] The object name.

SerialType

Returns the serial type of this object.

property SerialType { get }
type ISerialTypeInfo
value [not-null] The serial type.
inherited ISerializable.SerialType

SerialVersion

Returns the serial data version.

property SerialVersion { get }
type int32
value [>=1] The serial data version tag.
inherited ISerializable.SerialVersion

Remarks:

An ISerializable implementation is required to support all versions up to the one returned by SerialVersion.

ISerializable.Serialize
ISerializable.Deserialize

Type

The type of this geo object.

property Type { get }
type GeoObjectType
value The geo object type.

Methods

Deserialize

Initializes the state of this object from the given data stream.

method Deserialize (int32 serialVersion, ISerializer data)
type ISerializable
params serialVersion [>=1] The serial data version.
  data [not-null] The serial data stream.
returns [not-null] The deserialized object. This will typically be this, but in some circumstances, another instance may be returned (e.g. singletons).
inherited ISerializable.Deserialize

Remarks:

The Deserialize method will be called immediately after the object has been instantiated via its default constructor.

The provided serialVersion number is guaranteed to be equal to or less than the SerialVersion returned by this object (i.e. ISerializable object must provide backwards compatibility).

ISerializable.SerialVersion

Exceptions:

Equals

Compares this object with the given one.

[Pure]
method Equals (IGeoObject other)
type bool
params other The object to compare to.
returns true if this object is equal to other, false if not.
inherited IEquatable.Equals

Serialize

Serializes the current state of this object to the given data stream.

method Serialize (ISerializer data)
params data [not-null] The serial data stream.
inherited ISerializable.Serialize

ISerializable.Deserialize
ISerializable.SerialVersion

Exceptions:

ToConfig

Returns the configuration value that describes this object.

method ToConfig ()
type ConfigValue
returns [not-null] The configuration value.
inherited IConfigurable.ToConfig

Remarks:

All configurable objects need to implement this interface. For simple types, it is preferable to delegate to ToValue.

The returned value may be of type Invalid, which means that this object in its current state cannot be described with the configuration API.

Before returning the resulting configuration value, Cache must be called on it, passing this IConfigurable object as parameter.

Exceptions:
