Changing instance "type"

Dirac

I've come up with a very odd need:
Lets say I have 3 structs that share the same allocator and each one has a method with the same name as the other two, takes the same arguments, but does different things.
Is there a way to change the type of the instance so it would call other's struct's method?

Example:
JASS:
globals
	real array value
endglobals

struct Addition extends array
	method math takes real v returns nothing
		set value[this] = value[this] + v
	endmethod
endstruct

struct Substraction extends array
	method math takes real v returns nothing
		set value[this] = value[this] - v
	endmethod
endstruct

struct Multiplication extends array
	method math takes real v returns nothing
		set value[this] = value[this] * v
	endmethod
endstruct

Imagine I have a instance of type "Addition" named "this", when I call this.math(3) it adds 3 to value[this] but then I want to substract or multiply it by another value without having to type the struct's name? As in
[ljass]call this.math(5)[/ljass] would now result in substraction or multiplication

Typecasting would work perfectly with your example:

JASS:
function Main takes nothing returns nothing
    local Addition this=Addition.allocate()
    set value[this]=100
    call this.math(5) //105
    call Substraction(this).math(15) //90
    call Multiplication(this).math(.5) //45
endfunction

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
you could do something like this:
JASS:
library Example
    globals
	real array value
    endglobals
    
    struct Addition extends array
	method math takes real v returns nothing
            set value[this] = value[this] + v
    	endmethod
    endstruct
    
    struct Substraction extends array
	method math takes real v returns nothing
            set value[this] = value[this] - v
	endmethod
    endstruct
    
    struct Multiplication extends array
        method math takes real v returns nothing
            set value[this] = value[this] * v
        endmethod
    endstruct
    
    struct Division extends array
        method math takes real v returns nothing
            set value[this] = value[this] / v
        endmethod
    endstruct
    
    struct Math extends array
        Addition add
        Subtraction sub
        Multiplication mult
        Division div
    endstruct
endlibrary


just 1 struct that holds instances of all 3

    I dunno if I ever mentioned it here, but my bot actually helped someone discover a new way to clip through walls.

    However, not many folks heard about it, because it's currently only compatible with the latest dev builds of multi-system emulator, BizHawk.

    cool! do you have a video?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I have a GIF though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    And this is the thread with the video that shows the wall clip. https://tasvideos.org/Forum/Topics/23453

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
