RubyCocoa - selectors for Ruby classes

Hello.
I’m using the RubyCocoa framework (well, trying to), freshly compiled
today (oops, yesterday) from the svn stable repository.

I want my application controller to get asynchronous notifications
when a file descriptor has new data to be read, so I decided to use
OS X infrastructure.
Here is the interesting part of the code:

class Controller < OSX::NSObject
addRubyMethod_withType(‘dataAvailable:’, ‘[email protected]:@’)
def dataAvailable(obj)
# do something
end
def setup_notification_observer

OSX::NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter.addObserver_selector_name_object
(
self,
‘dataAvailable:’,
“NSFileHandleDataAvailableNotification”,
@fileHandle
)
end
def setup_data_available_notification
@fileHandle.waitForDataInBackgroundAndNotify
end

end

Of course setup_data_available_notification and
setup_notification_observer are called by awakeFromNib.

Everything should be right, but when the default center tries to send
my Controller a message I get logged:

2006-11-03 00:46:37.262 Fango[19411] Exception raised during posting
of notification. Ignored. exception: *** -[NSProxy
forwardInvocation:] called!

It looks like it can find the method signature (provided by
addRubyMethod_withType), but the forwardInvocation: method of the
Objective-C wrapper to my ruby Controller class doesn’t actually call
my ruby method. In fact, this makes me suppose forwardInvocation:
isn’t overrided at all and the message is catched by the parent class
which raises an exception, but I haven’t read RubyCocoa source code
so I can’t be sure.

I followed closely what’s written here: http://www.rubycocoa.com/
appleremote/2 . I double checked Apple documentation of
NSNotificationCenter, NSFileHandle.
I also searched on google for other documentation about selectors and
RubyCocoa, but all I could get was code with japanese comments which
didn’t use addRubyMethod_withType at all. I guess that code was for
another version of RubyCocoa (newer, maybe? From the unstable
repository?).

This is what I tried:

  • removing addRubyMethod_withType
  • adding ns_override
  • using :dataAvailable_, :dataAvailable, ‘dataAvailable’ instead of
    ‘dataAvailable:’
  • defining the method dataAvailable_ instead of dataAvailable
  • something else I can’t remember :stuck_out_tongue:
    Most of which I didn’t expect to actually work, but decided to try
    anyway. Some bugs just make you paranoid.

I’m using Mac OS X 10.4.8 (PPC), XCode 2.4.

Any ideas? :slight_smile:
Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I don’t know anything about RubyCocoa but I happened to see these
links in the Japanese mailing list.
They are in English.

Hope it helps.
