mrpt::utils::CMessage Class Reference

Detailed Description

A class that contain generic messages, that can be sent and received from a "CClientTCPSocket" object.

A message consists of a "header" (or type), and a "body" (or content). Apart from arbitrary data, specific methods are provided for easing the serialization of MRPT's "CSerializable" objects. This class is also used for passing data to hardware interfaces (see )

◆ deserializeIntoExistingObject()

void mrpt::utils::CMessage::deserializeIntoExistingObject ( CSerializable obj)

A method that parse the data in the message into an existing object.

Note that the class of the object must be known and must match the one of the serialized object. std::exception On corrupt data, unknown serialized objects, unknown serialized object version, non-matching classes,...

◆ deserializeIntoNewObject()

void mrpt::utils::CMessage::deserializeIntoNewObject ( CSerializablePtr obj)

A method that parse the data in the message into a new object of (a priori) unknown class.

The pointer will contain on return a copy of the reconstructed object. Deleting this object when no longer required is the responsability of the user. Note that previous contents of the pointer will be ignored (it should be NULL). std::exception On corrupt data, unknown serialized objects, unknown serialized object version,...

◆ getContentAsPointer()

void* mrpt::utils::CMessage::getContentAsPointer ( ) const

Gets the contents of the message as a "void*" (the pointer itself is the message) - This is intended for inter-thread comms only.

setContentFromPointer

◆ getContentAsString()

void mrpt::utils::CMessage::getContentAsString ( std::string &  str)

Gets the contents of the message as a string.

See also
setContentFromString

◆ getContentAsStruct()

template<class T >
void mrpt::utils::CMessage::getContentAsStruct ( T &  data) const
inline

Gets the contents of the message as an arbitary structure - This is intended for inter-thread comms only, the message will be not cross-platform.

setContentFromStruct

◆ serializeObject()

void mrpt::utils::CMessage::serializeObject ( CSerializable obj)

A method for serializing a MRPT's object into the content.

Any modification to data in "content" after this will corrupt the object serialization. Member "type" is unmodified in this method.

◆ setContentFromPointer()

void mrpt::utils::CMessage::setContentFromPointer ( void *  ptr)

Sets the contents of the message from a "void*" (the pointer itself becomes the message) - This is intended for inter-thread comms only.

See also
getContentAsPointer

◆ setContentFromString()

void mrpt::utils::CMessage::setContentFromString ( const std::string &  str)

Sets the contents of the message from a string.

See also
getContentAsString

◆ setContentFromStruct()

template<class T >
void mrpt::utils::CMessage::setContentFromStruct ( const T &  data)
inline

Sets the contents of the message from an arbitary structure - This is intended for inter-thread comms only, the message will be not cross-platform.

Member Data Documentation

◆ content

std::vector<unsigned char> mrpt::utils::CMessage::content

The contents of the message (memory is automatically handled by the std::vector object)

Definition at line 38 of file CMessage.h.

◆ type

uint32_t mrpt::utils::CMessage::type

An identifier of the message type.
