There are many getXXX methods in gtkD that simply get a specific type.
Obviously with D it can all be simplified.
I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to add a method
E.g., if KeyFile
public double getDouble(string groupName, string key)
public string getComment(string groupName, string key)
public bool getBooleanList(string groupName, string key)
public bool getBoolean(string groupName, string key)
I imagine a single get(T, K)(string groupName, K key)
can be used and it could just map to all the others...
There is a relatively straight forward conversion between so it might be possible to write a generic get routine that dispatches by using a direct mapping.
Comment -> string,
Boolean -> bool,
List -> ,
Just do some CT reflection on the class or create mapping table. Should be relatively simple and would provide a singular routine.
If it's generic enough it could just be template mixed in to any class and it would automatically figure out the mapping.
ObjectG.getPropertybut being a simple wrapper around the GTK
version it's not easy to use.
Value val; obj.getProperty("key", val); val.get!Widget();
Could this then not be wrapped? I guess I could wrap it myself.
