The method that will be called as a result of the action must accept a single notification argument. This will be a defcon.tools.notifications.Notification object.

This is a convenience method that does the same thing as:

dispatcher = anObject.dispatcher
dispatcher.addObserver(observer=observer, methodName=methodName,
    notification=notification, observable=anObject)
canRedo()

Returns a boolean indicating whether the undo manager is able to perform a redo.

canUndo()

Returns a boolean indicating whether the undo manager is able to perform an undo.

destroyAllRepresentations(notification=None)

Destroy all representations.

destroyRepresentation(name, **kwargs)

Destroy the stored representation for name and **kwargs. If no kwargs are given, any representation with name will be destroyed regardless of the kwargs passed when the representation was created.

dirty

The dirty state of the object. True if the object has been changed. False if not. Setting this to True will cause the base changed notification to be posted. The object will automatically maintain this attribute and update it as you change the object.

Disable this object’s notifications until told to resume them.

  • notification The specific notification to disable. This is optional. If no notification is given, all notifications will be disabled.

enableNotifications(notification=None, observer=None)

Enable this object’s notifications.

  • notification The specific notification to enable. This is optional.

dispatcher.enableNotifications(
    observable=anObject, notification=notification, observer=observer)
font

The Font that this object belongs to.

getDataForSerialization(**kwargs)

Return a dict of data that can be pickled.

getRepresentation(name, **kwargs)

Get a representation. name must be a registered representation name. **kwargs will be passed to the appropriate representation factory.

guidelines

This is a compatibility attribute for ufoLib. It maps to Font.guidelines.

hasCachedRepresentation(name, **kwargs)

Returns a boolean indicating if a representation for name and **kwargs is cached in the object.

hasObserver(observer, notification)

Returns a boolean indicating is the observer is registered for notification.

This is a convenience method that does the same thing as:

dispatcher = anObject.dispatcher
dispatcher.hasObserver(observer=observer,
    notification=notification, observable=anObject)
holdNotifications(notification=None, note=None)

Hold this object’s notifications until told to release them.

  • notification The specific notification to hold. This is optional. If no notification is given, all notifications will be held.
  • note An arbitrary string containing information about why the hold has been requested, the requester, etc. This is used for reference only.
