package org.apache.tapestry5.runtime;
Interface that defines the lifecycle of a component, within a page, allowing for callbacks into the component for many different events. This interface is part of the public API for Tapestry, but is not expected to be directly implemented by component classes; it should only be implemented as part of the component class transformation process.

Most of the methods are related to render phases; see the corresponding annotations and component rendering documentation to see how they relate to each other.


Lifecycle method invoked at the end of the org.apache.tapestry5.annotations.CleanupRender render phase. There is no annotation for this method, it is part of CleanupRender, but is always invoked. Its specific use is to allow components to clean up cached parameter values.
    void postRenderCleanup();

Invoked before rendering a component (or its template).
    void setupRender(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Invoked to allow a component to render its tag (start tag and attributes).
    void beginRender(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

This phase is only invoked for components with templates.
    void beforeRenderTemplate(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Invoked after rendering the template for a component (only for components with a template).
    void afterRenderTemplate(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Invoked just before rendering the body of component.
    void beforeRenderBody(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Invoked just after rendering the body of the component.
    void afterRenderBody(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Generally used to write the close tag matching any open tag written by beginRender(org.apache.tapestry5.MarkupWriter,org.apache.tapestry5.runtime.Event).
    void afterRender(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Generally used to perform final cleanup of the component after rendering.
    void cleanupRender(MarkupWriter writerEvent event);

Invoked to handle a component event. Methods with the org.apache.tapestry5.annotations.OnEvent annotation (or the matching naming convention) will be invoked until one returns a non-null value.

true if any handler was found (and invoked), false otherwise
java.lang.RuntimeException wrapping any checked exceptions that are thrown by individual event handler methods
    boolean dispatchComponentEvent(ComponentEvent event);
