Interface ComponentProcessor<T>

public interface ComponentProcessor<T>

Interface implemented to apply the visitor pattern to a set of components where the components are not necessarily siblings of each other. When processComponent is called, the component instance is guaranteed to be in the correct context.

Instances of this interface are parameterized by the type of the callbackContext the implementor expects. The typical usage is that the implementor creates and instance of the desired context and calls a helper method on a different object (for example UIXComponent.processComponent with the desired ComponentProcessor and context instances to actually perform the iteration.

Because the ComponentProcessor can't look ahead, more complex iteration tasks, such as laying out and rendering components based on the number of components to render may require multiple-passes--one to collect the layout information into the callbackContext using one ComponentProcessor implementation and a second pass using a different ComponentProcessor to actually perform the layout using the information calculated in the first pass.
