Class: YARD::CodeObjects::Proxy

Defined in:
lib/yard/code_objects/proxy.rb

Overview

The Proxy class is a way to lazily resolve code objects in cases where the object may not yet exist. A proxy simply stores an unresolved path until a method is called on the object, at which point it does a lookup using Registry.resolve. If the object is not found, a warning is raised and ProxyMethodError might be raised.

Examples:

Creates a Proxy to the String class from a module

# When the String class is parsed this method will
# begin to act like the String ClassObject.
Proxy.new(mymoduleobj, "String")

Dynamic Method Handling

This class handles dynamic methods through the method_missing method

#method_missing(meth, *args, &block) ⇒ Object

Dispatches the method to the resolved object.

end

#type=(type) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Allows a parser to infer the type of the proxy by its path.

Parameters:

  • type (#to_sym)

    the proxy's inferred type
